Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Adiabatic temperature change

    Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Continental rift

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

  • Curie point

    The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.

  • Desert

    One of the two types of dry climate; the driest of the dry climates.

  • Earth system science

    An interdisciplinary study that seeks to examine Earth as a system composed of numerous interacting parts or subsystems.

  • External process

    Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.

  • Fumarole

    A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Immature soil

    A soil lacking horizons.

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Isostasy

    The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.

  • Mountain breeze

    The nightly downslope winds commonly encountered in mountain valleys.

  • Photon

    A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.

  • Regional metamorphism

    Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.

  • Salinity

    The proportion of dissolved salts to pure water, usually expressed in parts per thousand (%).

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Scoria cone

    See Cinder cone.

  • Silicon-oxygen tetrahedron

    A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.
