Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alpine glacier

    A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.

  • Barchanoid dune

    Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.

  • Berm

    The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • Daily temperature range

    The difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Deformation

    General term for the processes of folding, faulting, shearing, compression, or extension of rocks as the result of various natural forces.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Elastic deformation

    Rock deformation in which the rock will return to nearly its original size and shape when the stress is removed.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Impact craters

    Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Microcontinents

    Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.

  • Mid-ocean ridge

    See Oceanic ridge system.

  • Parabolic dunes

    The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.

  • Prevailing wind

    A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Stellar parallax

    A measure of stellar distance.

  • Subtropical high

    Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.

  • Umbra

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