Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 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.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Column

    A feature found in caves that is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite join.

  • Curie point

    The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.

  • Equinox

    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.

  • Fog

    A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.

  • Halocline

    A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.

  • Intermediate composition

    The composition of igneous rocks lying between felsic and mafic.

  • Kame

    A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.

  • Porphyritic texture

    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.

  • Radiation pressure

    The force exerted by electromagnetic radiation from an object such as the Sun.

  • Ray (lunar)

    Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Silicon-oxygen tetrahedron

    A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.

  • Stable air

    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.

  • Stable platform

    That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.

  • Submergent coast

    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.

  • Thermal metamorphism

    See Contact metamorphism.

  • Till

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.
