Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Chromatic aberration

    The property of a lens whereby light of different colors is focused at different places.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • Divergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Escape velocity

    The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.

  • Exotic stream

    A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.

  • Geostrophic wind

    A wind, usually above a height of 600 meters (2,000 feet), that blows parallel to the isobars.

  • Ice shelf

    Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.

  • Jovian planet

    The Jupiter-like planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets have relatively low densities.

  • Mixing ratio

    The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.

  • Obsidian

    A volcanic glass of felsic composition.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Photosphere

    The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • Sunspot

    A dark spot on the Sun, which is cool by contrast to the surrounding photosphere.

  • Tidal flat

    A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Tropical wet and dry

    A climate that is transitional between the wet tropics and the subtropical steppes.
