Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Evolution (Theory of)

    A fundamental theory in biology and paleontology that sets forth the process by which members of a population of organisms come to differ from their ancestors. Organisms evolve by means of mutations, natural selection, and genetic factors. Modern species are descended from related but different species that lived in earlier times.

  • Fault

    A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.

  • Geology

    The science that examines Earth, its form and composition, and the changes it has undergone and is undergoing.

  • Inner core

    The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.

  • Isobar

    A line drawn on a map connecting points of equal atmospheric pressure, usually corrected to sea level.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Open system

    One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.

  • 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.

  • Prominence

    A concentration of material above the solar surface that appears as a bright archlike structure.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Radiocarbon (carbon-14)

    The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Revolution

    The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Secondary pollutants

    Pollutants that are produced in the atmosphere by chemical reactions that occur among primary pollutants.

  • Tropical depression

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds that do not exceed 61 kilometers (38 miles) per hour.

  • Unstable air

    Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.
