Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aphelion

    The place in the orbit of a planet where the planet is farthest from the Sun.

  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Binary stars

    Two stars revolving around a common center of mass under their mutual gravitational attraction.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Correlation

    Establishing the equivalence of rocks of similar age in different areas.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Dry adiabatic rate

    The rate of adiabatic cooling or warming in unsaturated air. The rate of temperature change is 1° C per 100 meters.

  • Greenhouse effect

    The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.

  • Metallic bond

    A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.

  • Metamorphic rock

    Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.

  • Occlusion

    The overtaking of one front by another.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Psychrometer

    A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.

  • Rectangular pattern

    A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.

  • Sea stack

    An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Spring equinox

    The equinox that occurs on March 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on September 21–23 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
