Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Advection

    Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.

  • Anticline

    A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.

  • Barometer

    An instrument that measures atmospheric pressure.

  • Chemical weathering

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

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Earth science

    The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

  • Equatorial system

    A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.

  • Hadean eon

    A term found on some versions of the geologic time scale. It refers to the earliest interval (eon) of Earth history, and ended 4 billion years ago.

  • High

    A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Meteor shower

    Many meteors appearing in the sky caused when Earth intercepts a swarm of meteoritic particles.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Ore deposit

    A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.

  • Physical environment

    The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.

  • 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.

  • Stony meteorite

    One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • White dwarf

    A star that has exhausted most or all of its nuclear fuel and has collapsed to a very small size; believed to be near its final stage of evolution.
