Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Biosphere

    The totality of life on Earth; the parts of the solid Earth, hydrosphere, and atmosphere in which living organisms can be found.

  • Cloud

    A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Deformation

    General term for the processes of folding, faulting, shearing, compression, or extension of rocks as the result of various natural forces.

  • Eukaryotes

    An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.

  • Evaporation

    The process of converting a liquid to a gas.

  • Mercury barometer

    A mercury-filled glass tube in which the height of the mercury column is a measure of air pressure.

  • Metamorphism

    The changes in mineral composition and texture of a rock subjected to high temperature and pressure within Earth.

  • Nearshore zone

    The zone of beach that extends from the low-tide shoreline seaward to where waves break at low tide.

  • Neritic zone

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

  • Periodic table

    The tabular arrangement of the elements according to atomic number.

  • Precession

    See Axial precession.

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Shore

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

  • Spring equinox

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

  • Stratified drift

    Sediments deposited by glacial meltwater.

  • Stream valley

    The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.

  • Subduction zone

    A long, narrow zone where one lithospheric plate descends beneath another.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Wave-cut platform

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