Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Basalt

    A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Climate system

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

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Echo sounder

    An instrument used to determine the depth of water by measuring the time interval between emission of a sound signal and the return of its echo from the bottom.

  • Filaments

    Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.

  • Flow

    A type of movement common to masswasting processes in which water-saturated material moves downslope as a viscous fluid.

  • Frontal wedging

    Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Granitic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.

  • Hypothesis

    A tentative explanation that is tested to determine if it is valid.

  • Land breeze

    A local wind blowing from land toward the water during the night in coastal areas.

  • Meteor shower

    Many meteors appearing in the sky caused when Earth intercepts a swarm of meteoritic particles.

  • Nucleus

    The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.

  • Radiometric dating

    The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.

  • Shelf break

    The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.

  • Tropical wet and dry

    A climate that is transitional between the wet tropics and the subtropical steppes.

  • Vapor pressure

    That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.

  • Weathering

    The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
