Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Basaltic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks indicating that the rock contains substantial dark silicate minerals and calciumrich plagioclase feldspar.

  • Cloud

    A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.

  • Conduction

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

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Cup anemometer

    See Anemometer.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Eon

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

  • Erosion

    The incorporation and transportation of material by a mobile agent, such as water, wind, or ice.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Infiltration

    The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.

  • Localized convective lifting

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

  • Nekton

    Pelagic organisms that can move independently of ocean currents by swimming or other means of propulsion.

  • Oceanic ridge system

    A continuous elevated zone on the floor of all the major ocean basins and varying in width from 500 to 5,000 kilometers (300–3,000 miles). The rifts at the crests of ridges represent divergent plate boundaries.

  • Photon

    A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.

  • Seismic gap

    A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.

  • Sinkhole

    A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Tropical rain forest

    A luxuriant broadleaf evergreen forest; also, the name given the climate associated with this vegetation.

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
