Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air-mass weather

    The conditions experienced in an area as an air mass passes over it. Because air masses are large and fairly homogenous, airmass weather will be fairly constant and may last for several days.

  • Archean eon

    The second eon of Precambrian time, following the Hadean and preceding the Proterozoic. It extends between 3.8 billion and 2.5 billion years before the present.

  • Epicenter

    The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Jovian planet

    The Jupiter-like planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets have relatively low densities.

  • Mesozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.

  • Obliquity

    The angle between the planes of Earth’s equator and orbit.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Paleomagnetism

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Parallax

    The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.

  • Rain

    Drops of water that fall from clouds that have a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeter (0.02 inch).

  • Richter scale

    A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.

  • Rock-forming minerals

    The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Sedimentary rock

    Rock formed from the weathered products of preexisting rocks that have been transported, deposited, and lithified.

  • 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.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • Supernova

    An exploding star that increases in brightness many thousands of times.

  • Tectonics

    The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.

  • Warm front

    A front along which a warm air mass overrides a retreating mass of cooler air.
