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.

  • Cinder cone

    A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Corona

    The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Euphotic zone

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

  • Fault scarp

    A cliff created by movement along a fault. It represents the exposed surface of the fault prior to modification by weathering and erosion.

  • Ice cap

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

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • 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.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Prevailing wind

    A wind that consistently blows from one direction more than from another.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Stalactite

    The icicle-like structure that hangs from the ceiling of a cavern.

  • Strike-slip fault

    A fault along which the movement is horizontal.

  • Terrace

    A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.

  • Till

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.

  • Valley glacier

    See Alpine glacier.
