Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alpine glacier

    A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • 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.

  • Desert pavement

    A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.

  • Emergent coast

    A coast where land that was formerly below sea level has been exposed either because of crustal uplift or a drop in sea level or both.

  • Energy levels

    Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Fold

    A bent rock layer or series of layers that were originally horizontal and subsequently deformed.

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Greenhouse effect

    The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.

  • Mesopause

    The boundary between the mesosphere and the thermosphere.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • Ozone

    A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Psychrometer

    A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Till

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
