Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute stability

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Col

    A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Dark matter

    Undetected matter that is thought to exist in great quantities in the universe.

  • Doppler effect

    The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.

  • Geocentric

    The concept of an Earth-centered universe.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Glacial trough

    A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.

  • Hot spring

    A spring in which the water is 6–9° C (10–15° F) warmer than the mean annual air temperature of its locality.

  • Low cloud

    A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.

  • Modified

    Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Phytoplankton

    Algal plankton, which are the most important community of primary producers in the ocean.

  • Positive feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that enhances or drives change.

  • Ridge push

    A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.

  • Sea stack

    An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.

  • Shield

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

  • Valence electron

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

  • Volcanic neck

    An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.

  • Wet

    adiabatic rate The rate of adiabatic temperature change in saturated air. The rate of temperature change is variable, but it is always less than the dry adiabatic rate.
