Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Accretionary wedge

    A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.

  • Chemical bond

    A strong attractive force that exists between atoms in a substance. It involves the transfer or sharing of electrons that allows each atom to attain a full valence shell.

  • Eclipse

    The cutting-off of the light of one celestial body by another passing in front of it.

  • Fiord

    A steep-sided inlet of the sea formed when a glacial trough was partially submerged.

  • Geology

    The science that examines Earth, its form and composition, and the changes it has undergone and is undergoing.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Lahar

    Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Localized convective lifting

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

  • Massive

    An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.

  • Mineral

    A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Normal polarity

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

  • Original horizontality

    Layers of sediments are generally deposited in a horizontal or nearly horizontal position.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Photic zone

    The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.

  • Red giant

    A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Swells

    Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.
