Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Beach

    An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Breccia

    A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Focal length

    The distance from the lens to the point where it focuses parallel rays of light.

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Gravitational collapse

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

  • Lithosphere

    The rigid outer layer of Earth, including the crust and upper mantle.

  • Maria

    The Latin name for the smooth areas of the Moon formerly thought to be seas.

  • Meteorology

    The scientific study of the atmosphere and atmospheric phenomena; the study of weather and climate.

  • Nucleus

    The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.

  • Paleozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the eons of the Precambrian and Mesozoic era from about 540 million to 248 million years ago.

  • Parabolic dunes

    The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.

  • Peridotite

    An igneous rock of ultramafic composition thought to be abundant in the upper mantle.

  • pH scale

    A common measure of the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution, it is a logarithmic scale ranging from 0 to 14. A value of 7 denotes a neutral solution, values below 7 indicate greater acidity, and numbers above 7 indicate greater alkalinity.

  • Prominence

    A concentration of material above the solar surface that appears as a bright archlike structure.

  • Reserve

    Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.

  • Rift zone

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