Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute stability

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Benthic zone

    The marine life zone that includes any seabottom surface regardless of its distance from shore.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Continental margin

    That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Declination (stellar)

    The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Dike

    A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.

  • Evapotranspiration

    The combined effect of evaporation and transpiration.

  • Intraplate volcanism

    Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.

  • Isotherms

    Lines connecting points of equal temperature.

  • Leaching

    The depletion of soluble materials from the upper soil by downward-percolating water.

  • Model

  • Photon

    A discrete amount (quantum) of electromagnetic energy.

  • 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.

  • Radioactivity

    The spontaneous emission of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Red giant

    A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Sidereal month

    A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.

  • Vapor pressure

    That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.
