Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute instability

    Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.

  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • Basalt

    A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.

  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Cosmological red shift

    Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.

  • Dike

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

  • Earthflow

    The downslope movement of watersaturated, clay-rich sediment. Most characteristic of humid regions.

  • End moraine

    A ridge of till marking a former position of the front of a glacier.

  • Eon

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

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • Light-year

    The distance light travels in a year; about 6 trillion miles.

  • Natural leeves

    The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Recessional moraine

    An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.

  • Rock flour

    Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.

  • Rock-forming minerals

    The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.

  • Shadow zone

    The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Supercontinent

    A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
