Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Body waves

    Seismic waves that travel through Earth’s interior.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Daily temperature range

    The difference between the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Deep-ocean trench

    See Trench.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Globule

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

  • Hard stabilization

    Any form of artificial structure built to protect a coast or to prevent the movement of sand along a beach. Examples include groins, jetties, breakwaters, and seawalls.

  • Negative feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.

  • Outer core

    A layer beneath the mantle about 2,200 kilometers (1,364 miles) thick that has the properties of a liquid.

  • Primary pollutants

    Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.

  • Proton–proton chain

    A chain of thermonuclear reactions by which nuclei of hydrogen are built up into nuclei of helium.

  • Saturation

    The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.

  • Seamount

    An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.

  • Sill

    A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.

  • Supersaturation

    The condition of being more highly concentrated than is normally possible under given temperature and pressure conditions. When describing humidity, it refers to a relative humidity that is greater than 100 percent.

  • Volatiles

    Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.

  • Water table

    The upper level of the saturated zone of groundwater.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
