Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Breccia

    A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.

  • Compressional mountains

    Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • 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.

  • Deep-ocean basin

    The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.

  • Earthflow

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

  • Intertidal zone

    The area where land and sea meet and overlap; the zone between high and low tides.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.

  • Massive

    An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.

  • Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)

    The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Normal polarity

    A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Plate tectonics

    The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.

  • Rotation

    The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.

  • Subduction zone

    A long, narrow zone where one lithospheric plate descends beneath another.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Upwelling

    The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.
