Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bathymetry

    The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Columnar joints

    A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.

  • Concordant

    A term used to describe intrusive igneous masses that form parallel to the bedding of the surrounding rock.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • Deep-ocean basin

    The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.

  • Euphotic zone

    The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Heat

    The kinetic energy of random molecular motion.

  • 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.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Passive continental margin

    Margins that consist of a continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise. They are not associated with plate boundaries and therefore experience little volcanism and few earthquakes.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Reserve

    Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.

  • Residual soil

    Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.

  • Rockslide

    The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.

  • Seamount

    An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.

  • Seismology

    The study of earthquakes and seismic waves.

  • Solar nebula

    The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
