Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Artesian well

    A well in which the water rises above the level where it was initially encountered.

  • Atmosphere

    The gaseous portion of a planet; the planet’s envelope of air. One of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Atomic number

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Chemical compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Closed system

    A system that is self-contained with regards to matter—that is, no matter enters or leaves.

  • Columnar joints

    A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.

  • Coriolis force (effect)

    The deflective force of Earth’s rotation on all free-moving objects, including the atmosphere and oceans. Deflection is to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • Mesocyclone

    An intense, rotating wind system in the lower part of a thunderstorm that precedes tornado development.

  • Mesosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the stratosphere and characterized by decreasing temperatures with height.

  • Nonconformity

    An unconformity in which older metamorphic or intrusive igneous rocks are overlain by younger sedimentary strata.

  • Seamount

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

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Surface waves

    Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
