Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Circle of illumination

    The great circle that separates daylight from darkness.

  • Continental volcanic arc

    Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.

  • Cross-bedding

    Structure in which relatively thin layers are inclined at an angle to the main bedding. Formed by currents of wind or water.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Ice shelf

    Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.

  • Irregular galaxy

    A galaxy that lacks symmetry.

  • Lake-effect snow

    Snow showers associated with a cP air mass to which moisture and heat are added from below as the air mass traverses a large and relatively warm lake (such as one of the Great Lakes), rendering the air mass humid and unstable.

  • Magnetometer

    A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Meteorite

    Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.

  • Normal fault

    A fault in which the rock above the fault plane has moved down relative to the rock below.

  • Ore deposit

    A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Stress

    The force per unit area acting on any surface within a solid.

  • Swells

    Wind-generated waves that have moved into an area of weaker winds or calm.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Ultramafic composition

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

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
