Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 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.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Echo sounder

    An instrument used to determine the depth of water by measuring the time interval between emission of a sound signal and the return of its echo from the bottom.

  • Epicenter

    The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Index fossil

    A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.

  • Mixing depth

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

  • Photic zone

    The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.

  • Photosphere

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

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Population II

    Stars poor in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively old stars found in the halo, globular clusters, or nuclear bulge.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Tarn

    A small lake in a cirque.

  • Temporary (local) base level

    The level of a lake, resistant rock layer, or any other base level that stands above sea level.

  • Transported soil

    Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.

  • Upslope fog

    Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.

  • Volatiles

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

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.
