Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bright-line spectrum

    The bright lines produced by an incandescent gas under low pressure.

  • Correlation

    Establishing the equivalence of rocks of similar age in different areas.

  • Dome

    A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Energy

    The capacity to do work.

  • Front

    The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

  • Frontal fog

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

  • Hard stabilization

    Any form of artificial structure built to protect a coast or to prevent the movement of sand along a beach. Examples include groins, jetties, breakwaters, and seawalls.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Meteor shower

    Many meteors appearing in the sky caused when Earth intercepts a swarm of meteoritic particles.

  • Monocline

    A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.

  • Outer planet

    See Jovian planet.

  • Rapids

    A part of a stream channel in which the water suddenly begins flowing more swiftly and turbulently because of an abrupt steepening of the gradient.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Sorting

    The process by which solid particles of various sizes are separated by moving water or wind. Also, the degree of similarity in particle size in sediment or sedimentary rock.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Temperature inversion

    A layer in the atmosphere of limited depth where the temperature increases rather than decreases with height.

  • Trellis pattern

    A system of streams in which nearly parallel tributaries occupy valleys cut in folded strata.

  • Turbidite

    Turbidity current deposit characterized by graded bedding.
