Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Coarse-grained texture

    An igneous rock texture in which the crystals are roughly equal in size and large enough so that individual minerals can be identified with the unaided eye.

  • Dark matter

    Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

  • Decompression melting

    Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.

  • Deposition

    The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Half graben

    A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.

  • Middle cloud

    A cloud occupying the height range from 2,000 to 6,000 meters.

  • Nucleus

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

  • Numerical date

    Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Physical environment

    The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.

  • Plankton

    Passively drifting or weakly swimming organisms that cannot move independently of ocean currents. Includes microscopic algae, protozoa, jellyfish, and larval forms of many animals.

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Primary (P) wave

    A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Spheroidal weathering

    Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.

  • System

    Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
