Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Caldera

    A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.

  • Coral reef

    Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Escape velocity

    The initial velocity an object needs to escape from the surface of a celestial body.

  • External process

    Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Glassy texture

    A term used to describe the texture of certain igneous rocks, such as obsidian, that contain no crystals.

  • Impact craters

    Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.

  • Melt

    The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.

  • Open cluster

    A loosely formed group of stars of similar origin.

  • 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.

  • Ore deposit

    A naturally occurring concentration of one or more metallic minerals that can be extracted economically.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Porphyritic texture

    An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Stromatolite

    Structures that are deposited by algae and consist of layered mounds of calcium carbonate.

  • Summer solstice

    The solstice that occurs on June 21–22 in the Northern Hemisphere and on December 21–22 in the Southern Hemisphere.

  • Tropical storm

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds between 61 and 119 kilometers (38 and 74 miles) per hour.
