Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Berm

    The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • 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.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Jet stream

    Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.

  • 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.

  • Lithospheric plate

    A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.

  • Mesopause

    The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.

  • Metamorphism

    The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Solar flare

    A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.

  • Storm surge

    The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.

  • Stratopause

    The boundary between the stratosphere and the mesosphere.

  • Stratus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also, the name given one of the flow clouds. They are sheets or layers that cover much or all of the sky

  • Streak

    The color of a mineral in powdered form.

  • Terminal moraine

    The end moraine marking the farthest advance of a glacier.
