Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Calorie

    The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.

  • Dwarf planets

    Celestial bodies that orbit stars, massive enough to be spherical but have not cleared their neighboring regions of planetesimals.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Equinox

    The time when the vertical rays of the Sun are striking the equator. The length of daylight and darkness is equal at all latitudes at equinox.

  • Fault-block mountain

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

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • Isotope

    Varieties of the same element that have different mass numbers; their nuclei contain the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Latent heat

    The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.

  • Lava tube

    Tunnel in hardened lava that acts as a horizontal conduit for lava flowing from a volcanic vent. Lava tubes allow fluid lavas to advance great distances.

  • Mesozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • Precipitation fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Solar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Sun.

  • Trench

    An elongated depression in the seafloor produced by bending of oceanic crust during subduction.

  • White frost

    Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
