Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Arkose

    A feldspar-rich sandstone.

  • Asteroid belt

    The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

  • Astronomical theory

    A theory of climatic change first developed by Yugoslavian astronomer Milutin Milankovitch. It is based on changes in the shape of Earth’s orbit, variations in the obliquity of Earth’s axis, and the wobbling of Earth’s axis.

  • Banded iron formations

    A finely layered iron and silica-rich (chert) layer deposited mainly during the Precambrian.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Dry-summer subtropical climate

    A climate located on the west sides of continents between latitudes 30° and 45°. It is the only humid climate with a strong winter precipitation maximum.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Element

    A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.

  • Fossil fuel

    General term for any hydrocarbon that may be used as a fuel, including coal, oil, and natural gas.

  • Habit

    Refers to the common or characteristic shape of a crystal, or aggregate of crystals.

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Low-velocity zone

    See Asthenosphere.

  • Magmatic differentiation

    The process of generating more than one rock type from a single magma.

  • Outwash plain

    A relatively flat, gently sloping plain consisting of materials deposited by meltwater streams in front of the margin of an ice sheet.

  • Pelagic zone

    Open ocean of any depth. Animals in this zone swim or float freely.

  • Primary (P) wave

    A type of seismic wave that involves alternating compression and expansion of the material through which it passes.

  • Seamount

    An isolated volcanic peak that rises at least 1,000 meters (3,000 feet) above the deepocean floor.

  • Seismic gap

    A segment of an active fault zone that has not experienced a major earthquake over a span when most other segments have. Such segments are probable sites for future major earthquakes.

  • Spring equinox

    The equinox that occurs on March 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on September 21–23 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Subtropical high

    Not a continuous belt of high pressure but rather several semipermanent, anticyclonic centers characterized by subsidence and divergence located roughly between latitudes 25 and 35 degrees.
