Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Axial precession

    A slow motion of Earth’s axis that traces out a cone over a period of 26,000 years.

  • Biogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of material of marine-organic origin.

  • Composite cone

    A volcano composed of both lava flows and pyroclastic material.

  • Continuous spectrum

    An uninterrupted band of light emitted by an incandescent solid, liquid, or gas under pressure.

  • Cosmology

    The study of the universe.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Gondwanaland

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

  • H-R diagram

    A plot of stars according to their absolute magnitudes and spectral types.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Lava

    Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.

  • Leaching

    The depletion of soluble materials from the upper soil by downward-percolating water.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • 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.

  • Mohs scale

    A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

  • Paleomagnetism

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • Stress

    The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.

  • Synodic month

    The period of revolution of the Moon with respect to the Sun, or its cycle of phases.

  • Tropical rain forest
