Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Accretionary wedge

    A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.

  • Atomic number

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Atomic weight

    The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.

  • Geocentric

    The concept of an Earth-centered universe.

  • Guyot

    A submerged flat-topped seamount.

  • 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.

  • Mohs scale

    A series of 10 minerals used as a standard in determining hardness.

  • Nearshore zone

    The zone of beach that extends from the low-tide shoreline seaward to where waves break at low tide.

  • Occlusion

    The overtaking of one front by another.

  • Ore

    Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.

  • Ozone

    A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.

  • Phytoplankton

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

  • Planetesimal

    A solid celestial body that accumulated during the first stages of planetary formation. Planetesimals aggregated into increasingly larger bodies, ultimately forming the planets.

  • Polar (P) air mass

    A cold air mass that forms in a high-latitude source region. Polar easterlies In the global pattern of prevailing winds, winds that blow from the polar high toward the subpolar low. These winds, however, should not be thought of as persistent winds, such as the trade winds.

  • Polar high

    Anticyclones that are assumed to occupy the inner polar regions and are believed to be thermally induced, at least in part.

  • Primary productivity

    The amount of organic matter synthesized by organisms from inorganic substances through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis within a given volume of water or habitat in a unit of time.

  • Protostar

    A collapsing cloud of gas and dust destined to become a star.

  • Sidereal day

    The period of Earth’s rotation with respect to the stars.

  • Vapor pressure

    That part of the total atmospheric pressure attributable to water-vapor content.

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
