Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Base level

    The level below which a stream cannot erode.

  • Degenerate matter

    Extremely dense solar material caused by electrons being displaced inward toward an atom’s nucleus.

  • Elements of weather and climate

    Those quantities or properties of the atmosphere that are measured regularly and that are used to express the nature of weather and climate.

  • Eruptive variable

    A star that varies in brightness.

  • Fault creep

    Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.

  • Magnetometer

    A sensitive instrument used to measure the intensity of Earth’s magnetic field at various points.

  • Mechanical weathering

    The physical disintegration of rock, resulting in smaller fragments.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Nuée ardente

    Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.

  • Oxbow lake

    A curved lake produced when a stream cuts off a meander.

  • Primary (P) wave

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

  • Proterozoic eon

    The eon following the Archean and preceding the Phanerozoic. It extends between about 2,500 million (2.5 billion) and 540 million years ago.

  • Proton

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

  • Sidereal month

    A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Stellar parallax

    A measure of stellar distance.

  • Stony-iron meteorite

    One of the three main categories of meteorites. This group, as the name implies, is a mixture of iron and silicate minerals.

  • Texture

    The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.
