Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Air pressure

    The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • Caldera

    A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Dark nebula

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

  • Debris flow

    A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.

  • Dry-summer subtropical climate

    A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.

  • Estuary

    A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers

  • Fault-block mountain

    A mountain formed by the displacement of rock along a fault.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Halocline

    A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Precession

    See Axial precession.

  • Seismogram

    The record made by a seismograph.

  • Shield volcano

    A broad, gently sloping volcano built from fluid basaltic lavas.

  • Ultraviolet

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.

  • Visible light

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.

  • Wave period

    The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
