Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Autumnal equinox

    The equinox that occurs on September 21–23 in the Northern Hemisphere and on March 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Differential weathering

    The variation in the rate and degree of weathering caused by such factors as mineral makeup, degree of jointing, and climate.

  • 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.

  • Disseminated deposit

    Any economic mineral deposit in which the desired mineral occurs as scattered particles in the rock but in sufficient quantity to make the deposit an ore.

  • Fiord

    A steep-sided inlet of the sea formed when a glacial trough was partially submerged.

  • Horn

    A pyramid-like peak formed by glacial action in three or more cirques surrounding a mountain summit.

  • Intraplate volcanism

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

  • Mercury barometer

    A mercury-filled glass tube in which the height of the mercury column is a measure of air pressure.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Nova

    A star that explosively increases in brightness.

  • Nucleus

    The small heavy core of an atom that contains all of its positive charge and most of its mass.

  • Radiometric dating

    The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.

  • Richter scale

    A scale of earthquake magnitude based on the motion of a seismograph.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.

  • Urban heat island

    The fact that temperatures within a city are generally higher than in surrounding rural areas.

  • Valence electron

    The electrons involved in the bonding process; the electrons occupying the highest-principal energy level of an atom.

  • Volcano

    A mountain formed of lava and/or pyroclastics.
