Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absorption spectrum

    A continuous spectrum with dark lines superimposed.

  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Artesian well

    A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Clouds of vertical development

    A cloud that has its base in the low-height range but extends upward into the middle or high altitudes.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Constellation

    An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.

  • 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.

  • Dune

    A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Igneous rock

    A rock formed by the crystallization of molten magma.

  • Intensity (earthquake)

    A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.

  • Lunar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Moon.

  • Numerical date

    Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.

  • Ore deposit

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

  • 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.

  • Tornado

    A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.

  • Troposphere

    The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.
