Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvium

    Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.

  • Calorie

    The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Deformation

    General term for the processes of folding, faulting, shearing, compression, or extension of rocks as the result of various natural forces.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Electromagnetic spectrum

    The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.

  • Foreshocks

    Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Humus

    Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

  • Intrusive

    Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.

  • Mesopause

    The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.

  • Open cluster

    A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Outwash plain

    A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Surf

    A collective term for breakers; also, the wave activity in the area between the shoreline and the outer limit of breakers.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.

  • Wave-cut cliff

    A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting

  • Westerlies

    The dominant west-to-east motion of the atmosphere that characterizes the regions on the poleward side of the subtropical highs.
