Science Glossary

A

  • Algebra  -  A branch of mathematics that uses letters or symbols as a place holder for unknown values or numbers.  These variables are used to represent relationships and to solve equations.
  • Applied Science  -  Applied scientific knowledge to practical problems in engineering and health. 
  • Archaeology  -  A study of past human activities, environments and their remains.
  • Arithmetic  -  The study of numbers and their properties of the basic operations, added, subtracted, divided or multiplied to get an answer.
  • Astospheric Chemistry  -  The chemistry of the earth's atmosphere and other planets.
  • Astrobiology  -  The search for life outside earth.
  • Astrochemistry  -  The composition and reactions of chemical elements and molecules found in stars and in space and of the interactions between matter and radiation.
  • Astronomy  -  Anything in the universe beyond earth.
  • Atmospheric  -  The study of aerosols, clouds, and gasses, basically airborne particles, that surround the planetary bodies of the solar system.

B

  • Biochemistry  -  Studies the chemical processes within and related to living organisms.
  • Biology  -  The study of living organisms such as animals and plants.
  • Biophysics  -  Studies the laws and principles in physics that describes patterns seen in biological systems.

C

  • Cartography  -  The study of making maps, their layout, production, and publication.
  • Chemistry  -  The physical science of atomic energy, and it's chemical reaction, properties, behavior, changes, composition, and structure.
  • Climatology  -  Climate and how it changes over time.
  • Computational Chemistry  -  Generates data which complements experimental data on the properties, reactions, and structures of substances.
  • Computer Science  -  This science is much more than just studying computers, its logical thinking to solving problems.
  • Cosmology  -  The origin and eventual fate of the universe.

D

E

  • Earth Science  -  The study of planet earth.
  • Economy  -  An economist studies the economy.  A good economy is when it's trade is thriving.
  • Engineering  -  The science of building things from the small to the big, like bridges, buildings, dams, ships, tunnels, and etc.  On this site, engineering is broken down into five basic disciplines: Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Systems.
  • Environmental Geography  -  The study of our relationship with the natural world, living and non-living world.

F

  • Flow Chemistry  -  The process of performing chemical reactions in a pipe or tubing.  The reaction components are pumped togeather at a mixing junction and flowed down a temperature controlled pipe of tube.  This can be moer environmentally frendly and cost effective than batch processes.
  • Formal Science  -  Concerned with formal systems like computer science, logic and mathematics.

G

  • Geography  -  Earth's human and physical geographic features.
  • Geology  -  A science of what the earth is made of, solid matter.
  • Geometry  -  Deals with shapes and their properties or relationships to circles, lines, points, etc.  These relationships can be expressed in plane geometry, two-dimensional figures and solid geometry, three-dimensional figures.
  • Geophysics  -  The physical properties and dynamics of the earth and planets.

H

  • Human Geography  -  The study of earth's, people, beliefs, children, cities, home, and way of life.
  • Hydrology  -  The study of water in the environment.
