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

    Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.

  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Apparent magnitude

    The brightness of a star when viewed from Earth.

  • Aquitard

    Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Glacier

    A thick mass of ice originating on land from the compaction and recrystallization of snow that shows evidence of past or present flow.

  • Guyot

    A submerged flat-topped seamount.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Lunar regolith

    A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.

  • Melt

    The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.

  • Metallic bond

    A chemical bond present in all metals that may be characterized as an extreme type of electron sharing in which the electrons move freely from atom to atom.

  • Moment magnitude

    A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.

  • Ore

    Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.

  • Refracting telescope

    A telescope that employs a lens to bend and concentrate the light from distant objects.

  • Regional metamorphism

    Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.

  • Renewable resource

    A resource that is virtually inexhaustible or that can be replenished over relatively short time spans.

  • Seismic waves

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

  • Transform fault

    A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.
