Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aphelion

    The place in the orbit of a planet where the planet is farthest from the Sun.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Dark matter

    Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

  • Dome

    A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.

  • Equatorial system

    A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • 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.

  • Magnetometer

    A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Pluvial lake

    A lake formed during a period of increased rainfall. During the Pleistocene epoch this occurred in some nonglaciated regions during periods of ice advance elsewhere.

  • Radio interferometer

    Two or more radio telescopes that combine their signals to achieve the resolving power of a larger telescope.

  • Regional metamorphism

    Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.

  • Sheeting

    A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Thermohaline circulation

    Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.

  • 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.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
