Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Dike

    A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.

  • Eon

    The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Isostatic adjustment

    Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.

  • Lateral moraine

    A ridge of till along the sides of an alpine glacier composed primarily of debris that fell to the glacier from the valley walls.

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Lunar regolith

    A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.

  • Monocline

    A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.

  • Oceanic plateau

    An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.

  • Periodic table

    The tabular arrangement of the elements according to atomic number.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Radiation

    The transfer of energy (heat) through space by electromagnetic waves.

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Storm surge

    The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.

  • 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.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.
