Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Batholith

    A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Environment

    Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.

  • Eon

    The largest time unit on the geologic time scale, next in order of magnitude above era.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Graded bed

    A sediment layer that is characterized by a decrease in sediment size from bottom to top.

  • Loess

    Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Piedmont glacier

    A glacier that forms when one or more valley glaciers emerge from the confining walls of mountain valleys and spread out to create a broad sheet in the lowlands at the base of the mountains.

  • Polar wandering

    As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.

  • Reflecting telescope

    A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.

  • Relative humidity

    The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.

  • Scattering

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

  • Sublimation

    The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.

  • Submarine canyon

    A seaward extension of a valley that was cut on the continental shelf during a time when sea level was lower, or a canyon carved into the outer continental shelf, slope, and rise by turbidity currents.

  • Thermal metamorphism

    See Contact metamorphism.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.

  • Wave-cut cliff

    A seaward-facing cliff along a steep shoreline formed by wave erosion at its base and mass wasting

  • Zone of fracture

    The upper portion of a glacier consisting of brittle ice.
