Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Batholith

    A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

  • Contact metamorphism

    Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

  • Discordant

    A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.

  • Ecliptic

    The yearly path of the Sun plotted against the background of stars.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Escape velocity

    The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.

  • 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.

  • Foliation

    A texture of metamorphic rocks that gives the rock a layered appearance.

  • Gondwanaland

    The southern portion of Pangaea consisting of South America, Africa, Australia, India, and Antarctica.

  • Groundwater

    Water in the zone of saturation.

  • Hogback

    A narrow, sharp-crested ridge formed by the upturned edge of a steeply dipping bed of resistant rock.

  • Intensity (earthquake)

    A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.

  • Melt

    The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.

  • 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.

  • Mineral

    A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.

  • Pulsating variable

    A variable star that pulsates in size and luminosity.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Swells

    Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.

  • Talus

    An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.

  • Tenacity

    Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.
