Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Artesian well

    A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Climate system

    The exchanges of energy and moisture that occur among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, biosphere, and cryosphere.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • Cutoff

    A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Emission spectrum

    See Bright-line spectrum

  • Fossil succession

    Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.

  • Freezing nuclei

    Solid particles that serve as cores for the formation of ice crystals.

  • Galactic cluster

    Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Horn

    A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Maritime (m) air mass

    An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.

  • Planetesimal

    A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.

  • Population II

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

  • Prevailing wind

    A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.

  • Reflection nebula

    A relatively dense dust cloud in interstellar space that is illuminated by starlight.

  • Sea breeze

    A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.
