Full solutions for Biology: The Dynamics of Life | 1st Edition
Andean-type plate margin
Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.
The brightness of a star when viewed from Earth.
The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.
The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.
The study of the universe.
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.
A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.
The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.
The movement of a tidal current away from the shore.
A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.
Buoyant plumes of hot, ashladen gases that can extend thousands of meters into the atmosphere.
The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.
The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.
Compensation of the lithosphere when weight is added or removed. When weight is added, the lithosphere will respond by subsiding, and when weight is removed, there will be uplift.
The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.
All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.
The angle between the planes of Earth’s equator and orbit.
A structure composed of four oxygen atoms surrounding a silicon atom that constitutes the basic building block of silicate minerals.
A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.
A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.
