Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Cinder cone

    A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.

  • Continental shelf

    The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.

  • Continuous spectrum

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

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Eccentricity

    The variation of an ellipse from a circle.

  • Element

    A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Neap tide

    Lowest tidal range, occurring near the times of the first- and third-quarter phases of the Moon.

  • Nuclear fusion

    The source of the Sun’s energy.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Rock-forming minerals

    The minerals that make up most of the rocks of Earth’s crust.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Superposition

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

  • Terrace

    A flat, benchlike structure produced by a stream, which was left elevated as the stream cut downward.

  • Tidal current

    The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Unstable air

    Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.
