Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Altitude (of the Sun)

    The angle of the Sun above the horizon.

  • Black dwarf

    A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.

  • Climate system

    The exchanges of energy and moisture that occur among the atmosphere, hydrosphere, solid Earth, biosphere, and cryosphere.

  • Electron

    A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.

  • Energy levels

    Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.

  • Freezing

    The change of state from a liquid to a solid.

  • Front

    The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

  • Gondwanaland

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

  • Gravitational collapse

    The gradual subsidence of mountains caused by lateral spreading of weak material located deep within these structures.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Hypothesis

    A tentative explanation that is tested to determine if it is valid.

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Oceanic plateau

    An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.

  • Oort cloud

    A spherical shell composed of comets that orbit the Sun at distances generally greater than 10,000 times the Earth–Sun distance.

  • Radio interferometer

    Two or more radio telescopes that combine their signals to achieve the resolving power of a larger telescope.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Snowline

    Lower limit of perennial snow.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.
