Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aerosols

    Tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere.

  • Bergeron process

    A theory that relates the formation of precipitation to supercooled clouds, freezing nuclei, and the different saturation levels of ice and liquid water.

  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Ductile deformation

    A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.

  • Fossil

    The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.

  • Fumarole

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

  • Geosphere

    The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.

  • Melting

    The change of state from a solid to a liquid.

  • Mercalli intensity scale

    See Modified Mercalli intensity scale.

  • Monthly mean temperature

    The mean temperature for a month that is calculated by averaging the daily means.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Overrunning

    Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Scoria

    Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Temperature inversion

    A layer in the atmosphere of limited depth where the temperature increases rather than decreases with height.

  • Volcanic bomb

    A streamlined pyroclastic fragment ejected from a volcano while molten.

  • Wave-cut cliff

    A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting
