Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Astronomy

    The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.

  • Atomic weight

    The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.

  • Barometric tendency

    See Pressure tendency.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • Evapotranspiration

    The combined effect of evaporation and transpiration.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Interior drainage

    A discontinuous pattern of intermittent streams that do not flow to the ocean.

  • Lower mantle

    The part of the mantle that extends from the core–mantle boundary to a depth of 660 kilometers.

  • Massive

    An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Population II

    Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.

  • Rip current

    A strong narrow surface or nearsurface current of short duration and high speed flowing seaward through the breaker zone at nearly right angles to the shore. It represents the return to the ocean of water that has been piled up on the shore by incoming waves.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Specific gravity

    The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.

  • Suspended load

    The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.

  • Well

    An opening bored into the zone of saturation.
