Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Cavern

    A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Cosmological red shift

    Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Dark nebula

    A cloud of interstellar dust that obscures the light of more distant stars and appears as an opaque curtain.

  • Dissolved load

    That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Equatorial system

    A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.

  • Fossil

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

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Magnetometer

    A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Spectroscopy

    The study of spectra.

  • Thermocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
