Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • Air pollutants

    Airborne particles and gases that occur in concentrations that endanger the health and well-being of organisms or disrupt the orderly functioning of the environment.

  • Bituminous

    The most common form of coal, often called soft, black coal.

  • Diurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.

  • Flow

    A type of movement common to masswasting processes in which water-saturated material moves downslope as a viscous fluid.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Liquefaction

    A phenomenon, sometimes associated with earthquakes, in which soils and other unconsolidated materials containing abundant water are turned into a fluid-like mass that is not capable of supporting buildings.

  • Microcontinents

    Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • Nuée ardente

    Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.

  • Original horizontality

    Layers of sediments are generally deposited in a horizontal or nearly horizontal position.

  • Pluvial lake

    A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Sea stack

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

  • Suspended load

    The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.

  • Ventifact

    A cobble or pebble polished and shaped by the sandblasting effect of wind.

  • Wave-cut cliff

    A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
