Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Autumnal equinox

    The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Basalt

    A fine-grained igneous rock of mafic composition.

  • Comet

    A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.

  • Crevasse

    A deep crack in the brittle surface of a glacier.

  • Doppler radar

    In addition to the tasks performed by conventional radar, this new generation of weather radar can detect motion directly and hence greatly improve tornado and severe storm warnings.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Epicenter

    The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.

  • Fossil

    The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.

  • Frontal fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Globular cluster

    A nearly spherically shaped group of densely packed stars.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Magmatic differentiation

    The process of generating more than one rock type from a single magma.

  • Neritic zone

    The marine-life zone that extends from the low tideline out to the shelf break.

  • Pycnocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change of density with depth.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Shore

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

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Terrane

    A crustal block bounded by faults, whose geologic history is distinct from the histories of adjoining crustal blocks.
