Bowen’s reaction series
A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.
Chemical sedimentary rock
Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.
Cone of depression
A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.
A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.
Diurnal tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting one high tide and one low tide during a tidal day; a daily tide.
The land area that contributes water to a stream.
An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.
Hot spot track
Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.
Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.
A fracture in rock along which there has been no movement.
A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.
Mixed tidal pattern
A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.
The basic idea that the Sun and planets formed from the same cloud of gas and dust in interstellar space.
A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.
A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.
The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.
A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.
Describes a mineral’s toughness or its resistance to breaking or deforming.
Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.
A mountain formed of lava and/or pyroclastics.
