Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • 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.

  • Condensation

    The change of state from a gas to a liquid.

  • Continental (c) air mass

    An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.

  • Deposition

    The process by which water vapor is changed directly to a solid without passing through the liquid state.

  • Dome

    A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.

  • Doppler radar

    In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Inertia

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

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Magnetic time scale

    A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.

  • Meteoroid

    Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.

  • Monocline

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

  • Outer planet

    See Jovian planet.

  • Pluvial lake

    A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.

  • Residual soil

    Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.

  • Rockslide

    The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.

  • Sinkhole

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

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.
