Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Cenozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Continental margin

    That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Cross-bedding

    Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.

  • Differential weathering

    The variation in the rate and degree of weathering caused by such factors as mineral makeup, degree of jointing, and climate.

  • Halocline

    A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.

  • Horst

    An elongated, uplifted block of crust bounded by faults.

  • Infiltration

    The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • pH scale

    A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Pressure tendency

    The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Sleet

    Frozen or semifrozen rain formed when raindrops freeze as they pass through a layer of cold air.

  • Solar flare

    A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.

  • Thunderstorm

    A storm produced by a cumulonimbus cloud and always accompanied by lightning and thunder. It is of relatively short duration and usually accompanied by strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and sometimes hail.

  • Tropical storm

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds between 61 and 119 kilometers (38 and 74 miles) per hour.
