Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aa flow

    A type of lava flow that has a jagged, blocky surface.

  • Artesian well

    A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.

  • Asteroid belt

    The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

  • Calving

    Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.

  • Carbonate group

    Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.

  • Contact metamorphism

    Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Mixing ratio

    The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.

  • Mohs scale

    A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

  • Monocline

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

  • Oxbow lake

    A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.

  • Soil profile

    A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.

  • Stony meteorite

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

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • Superposition

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

  • Thunderstorm

    A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.

  • Wash

    A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.

  • Zone of accumulation

    The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
