Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Closed system

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

  • Geology

    The science that examines Earth, its form and composition, and the changes it has undergone and is undergoing.

  • Geosphere

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

  • Globule

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

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Karst

    A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.

  • Microcontinents

    Relatively small fragments of continental crust that may lie above sea level, such as the island of Madagascar, or be submerged, as exemplified by the Campbell Plateau located near New Zealand.

  • Mineral

    A naturally occurring, inorganic crystalline material with a unique chemical composition.

  • Primary pollutants

    Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.

  • Pyroclastic flow

    A highly heated mixture, largely of ash and pumice fragments, traveling down the flanks of a volcano or along the surface of the ground.

  • Radial pattern

    A system of streams running in all directions away from a central elevated structure, such as a volcano.

  • Ray (lunar)

    Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.

  • Rectangular pattern

    A drainage pattern characterized by numerous right-angle bends that develops on jointed or fractured bedrock.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Seismic gap

    A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.

  • Seismograph

    An instrument that records earthquake waves.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Stratovolcano

    See Composite cone.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
