Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • 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.

  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Continental shelf

    The gently sloping submerged portion of the continental margin, extending from the shoreline to the continental slope.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Disconformity

    A type of unconformity in which the beds above and below are parallel.

  • Glaze

    A coating of ice on objects formed when supercooled rain freezes on contact.

  • Habit

    Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.

  • Light-year

    The distance light travels in a year; about 6 trillion miles.

  • Mixed tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.

  • Penumbra

    The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Pressure tendency

    The nature of the change in atmospheric pressure over the past several hours. It can be a useful aid in short range weather prediction.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Sublimation

    The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.

  • Thermosphere

    The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.

  • Tidal flat

    A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Tropopause

    The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.

  • Vesicular texture

    A term applied to igneous rocks that contain small cavities called vesicles, which are formed when gases escape from lava.
