Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Daughter product

    An isotope resulting from radioactive decay.

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • 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.

  • Fault creep

    Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.

  • Flare

    A sudden brightening of an area on the Sun.

  • Karst

    A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.

  • Lapse rate (normal)

    The average drop in temperature (6.5° C per kilometer; 3.5° F per 1,000 feet) with increased altitude in the troposphere.

  • Neritic zone

    The marine-life zone that extends from the low tideline out to the shelf break.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Nonrenewable resource

    Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.

  • Paleontology

    The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.

  • Primary pollutants

    Those pollutants emitted directly from identifiable sources.

  • Rift valley

    A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.

  • Scattering

    The redirecting (in all directions) of light by small particles and gas molecules in the atmosphere. The result is diffused light.

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Soil taxonomy

    A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Zooplankton

    Animal plankton.
