Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barchanoid dune

    Dunes forming scalloped rows of sand oriented at right angles to the wind. This form is intermediate between isolated barchans and extensive waves of transverse dunes.

  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Coastline

    The coast’s seaward edge. The landward limit of the effect of the highest storm waves on the shore.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Crystal

    An orderly arrangement of atoms.

  • Glacier

    A thick mass of ice originating on land from the compaction and recrystallization of snow that shows evidence of past or present flow.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Lithification

    The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Primary productivity

    The amount of organic matter synthesized by organisms from inorganic substances through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis within a given volume of water or habitat in a unit of time.

  • Renewable resource

    A resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans.

  • Shield volcano

    A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Slip face

    The steep, leeward slope of a sand dune; it maintains an angle of about 34 degrees.

  • Source region

    The area where an air mass acquires its characteristic properties of temperature and moisture.

  • Spiral galaxy

    A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.

  • Tidal current

    The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
