Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air

    A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.

  • Banded iron formations

    A finely layered iron and silica-rich (chert) layer deposited mainly during the Precambrian.

  • Biogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of material of marine-organic origin.

  • Breakwater

    A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.

  • Convergent boundary

    A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.

  • 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.

  • Distributary

    A section of a stream that leaves the main flow.

  • End moraine

    A ridge of till marking a former position of the front of a glacier.

  • Foreshore

    That portion of the shore lying between the normal high and low water marks; the intertidal zone.

  • Frontal fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Fumarole

    A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.

  • Main-sequence stars

    A sequence of stars on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, containing the majority of stars, that runs diagonally from the upper left to the lower right.

  • Mineral

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

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Spit

    An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.

  • Surface soil

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

  • Troposphere

    The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.
