  • Atomic weight

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

  • Electromagnetic spectrum

    The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.

  • Electron

    A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Nonrenewable resource

    Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.

  • Paleomagnetism

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Spring

    A flow of groundwater that emerges naturally at the ground surface.

  • Thermosphere

    The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.

  • Umbra

    The central, completely dark part of a shadow produced during an eclipse.
