Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Angular unconformity

    An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.

  • Beach face

    The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.

  • Climate

    A description of aggregate weather conditions; the sum of all statistical weather information that helps describe a place or region.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Estuary

    A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Hydrosphere

    The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Joint

    A fracture in rock along which there has been no movement.

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Mesosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the stratosphere and characterized by decreasing temperatures with height.

  • Neutron star

    A star of extremely high density composed entirely of neutrons.

  • Nuclear fusion

    The source of the Sun’s energy.

  • Ptolemaic system

    An Earth-centered system of the universe.

  • Runoff

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

  • Stalagmite

    The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.

  • Vesicular texture

    A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.
