Marshall from Florida International University said

"If I knew then what I knew now I would not have bought the book. It was over priced and My professor only used it a few times."

Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Basin

    A circular downfolded structure.

  • Cutoff

    A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.

  • Ductile deformation

    A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.

  • End moraine

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

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Horizon

    A layer in a soil profile.

  • Ice cap

    A mass of glacial ice covering a high upland or plateau and spreading out radially.

  • Igneous rock

    A rock formed by the crystallization of molten magma.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Mineralogy

    The study of minerals.

  • Moment magnitude

    A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.

  • Monsoon

    Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • 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.

  • Recessional moraine

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

  • Stable air

    Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.

  • Stony meteorite

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

  • Umbra

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