Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquifer

    Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.

  • Atomic weight

    The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.

  • Black hole

    A massive star that has collapsed to such a small volume that its gravity prevents the escape of all radiation.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Daily temperature range

    The difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Differential weathering

    The variation in the rate and degree of weathering caused by such factors as mineral makeup, degree of jointing, and climate.

  • Half graben

    A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.

  • Hydrogen burning

    The conversion of hydrogen through fusion to form helium.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Rotation

    The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.

  • Runoff

    Water that flows over the land rather than infiltrating into the ground.

  • Spring tide

    Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.

  • Stable platform

    That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.

  • Stock

    A pluton similar to but smaller than a batholith.

  • Suspended load

    The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.

  • Vapor pressure

    That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
