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

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Convergent boundary

    A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.

  • Crust

    The very thin outermost layer of Earth.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Decompression melting

    Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.

  • Evolution (Theory of)

    A fundamental theory in biology and paleontology that sets forth the process by which members of a population of organisms come to differ from their ancestors. Organisms evolve by means of mutations, natural selection, and genetic factors. Modern species are descended from related but different species that lived in earlier times.

  • Ice cap

    A mass of glacial ice covering a high upland or plateau and spreading out radially.

  • Inner core

    The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.

  • Nebular theory

    The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.

  • Nuée ardente

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

  • Occlusion

    The overtaking of one front by another.

  • 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.

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Rift zone

    A region of Earth’s crust along which divergence is taking place.

  • Soil taxonomy

    A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.

  • Stock

    A pluton similar to but smaller than a batholith.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Winter solstice

    The solstice that occurs on December 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on June 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.
