Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Accretionary wedge

    A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.

  • Celestial sphere

    An imaginary hollow sphere upon which the ancients believed the stars were hung and carried around Earth.

  • Curie point

    The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.

  • Floodplain

    The flat, low-lying portion of a stream valley subject to periodic inundation.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Nearshore zone

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

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Photosphere

    The region of the Sun that radiates energy to space. The visible surface of the Sun.

  • Plankton

    Passively drifting or weakly swimming organisms that cannot move independently of ocean currents. Includes microscopic algae, protozoa, jellyfish, and larval forms of many animals.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Reserve

    Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.

  • Spring

    A flow of groundwater that emerges naturally at the ground surface.

  • Stalagmite

    The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.

  • Surface waves

    Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Zone of saturation

    Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
