Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Axial precession

    A slow motion of Earth’s axis that traces out a cone over a period of 26,000 years.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Col

    A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.

  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Fiord

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

  • Geyser

    A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

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

  • 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.

  • Liquefaction

    A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.

  • Parallax

    The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.

  • Perturbation

    The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.

  • Pulsar

    A variable radio source of small size that emits radio pulses in very regular periods.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Sea breeze

    A local wind blowing from the sea during the afternoon in coastal areas.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Sidereal day

    The period of Earth’s rotation with respect to the stars.

  • Swells

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

  • Terminal moraine

    The end moraine marking the farthest advance of a glacier.

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
