Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anticyclone

    A high-pressure center characterized by a clockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Coarse-grained texture

    An igneous rock texture in which the crystals are roughly equal in size and large enough so that individual minerals can be identified with the unaided eye.

  • Continental slope

    The steep gradient that leads to the deep-ocean floor and marks the seaward edge of the continental shelf.

  • Correlation

    Establishing the equivalence of rocks of similar age in different areas.

  • Ductile deformation

    A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Evaporation

    The process of converting a liquid to a gas.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Monsoon

    Seasonal reversal of wind direction associated with large continents, especially Asia. In winter, the wind blows from land to sea; in summer, from sea to land.

  • Oceanography

    The scientific study of the oceans and oceanic phenomena.

  • Penumbra

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

  • Permeability

    A measure of a material’s ability to transmit water.

  • Right ascension

    An angular distance measured eastward along the celestial equator from the vernal equinox. Used with declination in a coordinate system to describe the position of celestial bodies.

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Terrigenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments derived from terrestrial weathering and erosion.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Vein deposit

    A mineral filling a fracture or fault in a host rock. Such deposits have a sheetlike, or tabular, form.
