Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Diurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.

  • Groundwater

    Water in the zone of saturation.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Magmatic differentiation

    The process of generating more than one rock type from a single magma.

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Nebular theory

    The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.

  • Periodic table

    The tabular arrangement of the elements according to atomic number.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Pyroclastic material

    The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Stony meteorite

    One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.

  • Stromatolite

    Structures that are deposited by algae and consist of layered mounds of calcium carbonate.

  • 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.

  • Supercontinent cycle

    The idea that the rifting and dispersal of one supercontinent is followed by a long period during which the fragments gradually reassemble into a new supercontinent.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Umbra

    The central, completely dark part of a shadow produced during an eclipse.
