Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air pollutants

    Airborne particles and gases that occur in concentrations that endanger the health and well-being of organisms or disrupt the orderly functioning of the environment.

  • Chinook

    A wind blowing down the lee-ward side of a mountain and warming by compression.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Degenerate matter

    Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.

  • External process

    Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.

  • Fault scarp

    A cliff created by movement along a fault. It represents the exposed surface of the fault prior to modification by weathering and erosion.

  • Focal length

    The distance from the lens to the point where it focuses parallel rays of light.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Maria

    The Latin name for the smooth areas of the Moon formerly thought to be seas.

  • Nebula

    A cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust.

  • Overrunning

    Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Proton

    A positively charged subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Rain

    Drops of water that fall from clouds that have a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeter (0.02 inch).

  • Settling velocity

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

  • Supergiant

    A very large star of high luminosity.
