Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Arkose

    A feldspar-rich sandstone.

  • Astronomical theory

    A theory of climatic change first developed by Yugoslavian astronomer Milutin Milankovitch. It is based on changes in the shape of Earth’s orbit, variations in the obliquity of Earth’s axis, and the wobbling of Earth’s axis.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Benthos

    The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Cirrus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Desert pavement

    A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.

  • Electron

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

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Low cloud

    A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Nebular theory

    The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.

  • Nucleus

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

  • Reflection

    The process whereby light bounces back from an object at the same angle at which it encounters a surface and with the same intensity.

  • Silicate

    Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.

  • Stromatolite

    Structures that are deposited by algae and consist of layered mounds of calcium carbonate.

  • Tectonic plate

    A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.

  • Temperature

    A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.
