Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Crystal

    An orderly arrangement of atoms.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Globule

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

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • Humus

    Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

  • Interface

    A common boundary where different parts of a system interact.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Lower mantle

    The part of the mantle that extends from the core–mantle boundary to a depth of 660 kilometers.

  • Lunar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Moon.

  • Ore deposit

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

  • Phytoplankton

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

  • Shelf break

    The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.

  • 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.

  • Tornado

    A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.

  • Tropical rain forest

    A luxuriant broadleaf evergreen forest; also, the name given the climate associated with this vegetation.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.
