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.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • 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.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Hydrosphere

    The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Orogenesis

    The processes that collectively result in the formation of mountains.

  • Parasitic cone

    A volcanic cone that forms on the flank of a larger volcano.

  • Penumbra

    The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.

  • Peridotite

    An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.

  • Photosphere

    The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.

  • Relative humidity

    The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.

  • Spit

    An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.

  • Stalactite

    The icicle-like structure that hangs from the ceiling of a cavern.

  • Stationary front

    A situation in which the surface position of a front does not move; the flow on either side of such a boundary is nearly parallel to the position of the front.

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Thermal gradient

    The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
