Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • Advection fog

    A fog formed when warm, moist air is blown over a cool surface.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Backswamp

    A poorly drained area on a floodplain that results when natural levees are present.

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Dune

    A hill or ridge of wind-deposited sand.

  • Greenhouse effect

    The transmission of shortwave solar radiation by the atmosphere, coupled with the selective absorption of longer-wavelength terrestrial radiation, especially by water vapor and carbon dioxide.

  • Joint

    A fracture in rock along which there has been no movement.

  • Lahar

    Mudflows on the slopes of volcanoes that result when unstable layers of ash and debris become saturated and flow downslope, usually following stream channels.

  • Laminar flow

    The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.

  • Mixed tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Prominence

    A concentration of material above the solar surface that appears as a bright archlike structure.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Seismic gap

    A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.

  • Sill

    A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • 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.
