Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvium

    Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.

  • Astronomy

    The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.

  • Big bang theory

    The theory that proposes that the universe originated as a single mass, which subsequently exploded.

  • Continental volcanic arc

    Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Infiltration

    The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.

  • Laminar flow

    The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.

  • Lunar regolith

    A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.

  • Maritime (m) air mass

    An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.

  • Modified

    Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.

  • 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.

  • Renewable resource

    A resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans.

  • Ridge push

    A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.

  • Shore

    Seaward of the coast, this zone extends from the highest level of wave action during storms to the lowest tide level.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.

  • Soil horizon

    A layer of soil that has identifiable characteristics produced by chemical weathering and other soil-forming processes.

  • Upslope fog

    Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.

  • Wind

    Air flowing horizontally with respect to Earth’s surface.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
