Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Angular unconformity

    An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.

  • Cross-cutting

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

  • Discordant

    A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Fog

    A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.

  • Hydrosphere

    The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Interface

    A common boundary where different parts of a system interact.

  • Ore deposit

    A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • Polar high

    Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.

  • Reserve

    Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Reverse fault

    A fault in which the material above the fault plane moves up in relation to the material below.

  • Rock flour

    Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Subtropical high

    Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.

  • Trophic level

    A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.

  • Wave height

    The vertical distance between the trough and crest of a wave.
