Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Black dwarf

    A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.

  • Catastrophism

    The concept that Earth was shaped by catastrophic events of a short-term nature.

  • Column

    A feature found in caves that is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite join.

  • Desert

    One of the two types of dry climate; the driest of the dry climates.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Fault-block mountain

    A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.

  • Flare

    A sudden brightening of an area on the Sun.

  • Glassy texture

    A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.

  • Glaze

    A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Interface

    A common boundary where different parts of a system interact.

  • Mineral resource

    All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.

  • Passive continental margin

    Margins that consist of a continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise. They are not associated with plate boundaries and therefore experience little volcanism and few earthquakes.

  • Phases of the Moon

    The progression of changes in the Moon’s appearance during the month.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Right ascension

    An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.

  • Shoreline

    The line that marks the contact between land and sea. It migrates up and down as the tide rises and falls.

  • 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.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.
