Full solutions for Microbiology: An Introduction | 11th Edition
Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.
A feature found in caves that is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite join.
The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.
The time when the vertical rays of the Sun are striking the equator. The length of daylight and darkness is equal at all latitudes at equinox.
A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.
A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.
The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.
A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.
An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.
Primary (P) wave
A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.
The force exerted by electromagnetic radiation from an object such as the Sun.
Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.
Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.
A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.
Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.
That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.
A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.
See Contact metamorphism.
Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.
