Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute instability

    Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.

  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Autumnal equinox

    The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Basalt

    A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Exotic stream

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

  • Hot spring

    A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Mohs scale

    A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Plate tectonics

    The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.

  • Rapids

    A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.

  • Regional metamorphism

    Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Thermohaline circulation

    Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.

  • Transform fault boundary

    A boundary in which two plates slide past one another without creating or destroying lithosphere.

  • White frost

    Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
