Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aftershocks

    Smaller earthquakes that follow the main earthquake.

  • Annual mean temperature

    An average of the 12 monthly temperature means.

  • Astronomical unit (AU)

    Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or

  • Autumnal equinox

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

  • Biosphere

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

  • Breakwater

    A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Hanging valley

    A tributary valley that enters a glacial trough at a considerable height above its floor.

  • Isotope

    Varieties of the same element that have different mass numbers; their nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.

  • Mass wasting

    The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.

  • Microcontinents

    Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.

  • Natural leeves

    The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.

  • Neutron

    A subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom. The neutron is electrically neutral and has a mass approximately that of a proton.

  • Primary (P) wave

    A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.

  • Radioactivity

    The spontaneous emission of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Rip current

    A strong narrow surface or nearsurface current of short duration and high speed flowing seaward through the breaker zone at nearly right angles to the shore. It represents the return to the ocean of water that has been piled up on the shore by incoming waves.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.

  • Wave period

    The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
