Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Apparent magnitude

    The brightness of a star when viewed from Earth.

  • Asteroid belt

    The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

  • Catastrophism

    The concept that Earth was shaped by catastrophic events of a short-term nature.

  • Convergent boundary

    A boundary in which two plates move together, causing one of the slabs of lithosphere to be consumed into the mantle as it descends beneath on an overriding plate.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Declination (stellar)

    The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.

  • Geostrophic wind

    A wind, usually above a height of 600 meters (2,000 feet), that blows parallel to the isobars.

  • Graded bed

    A sediment layer that is characterized by a decrease in sediment size from bottom to top.

  • Guyot

    A submerged flat-topped seamount.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Mechanical weathering

    The physical disintegration of rock, resulting in smaller fragments.

  • Meteoroid

    Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.

  • Pressure gradient

    The amount of pressure change occurring over a given distance.

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Rotation

    The spinning of a body, such as Earth, about its axis.

  • Solar flare

    A sudden and tremendous eruption in the solar chromosphere.

  • Tropical wet and dry

    A climate that is transitional between the wet tropics and the subtropical steppes.

  • Umbra

    The central, completely dark part of a shadow produced during an eclipse.

  • Welded tuff

    A pyroclastic rock composed of particles that have been fused together by the combination of heat still contained in the deposit after it has come to rest and by the weight of overlying material.
