Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Cosmological red shift

    Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • Deep-ocean basin

    The portion of seafloor that lies between the continental margin and the oceanic ridge system. This region comprises almost 30 percent of Earth’s surface.

  • Echo sounder

    An instrument used to determine the depth of water by measuring the time interval between emission of a sound signal and the return of its echo from the bottom.

  • Epicenter

    The location on Earth’s surface that lies directly above the focus of an earthquake.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Hygroscopic nuclei

    Condensation nuclei having a high affinity for water, such as salt particles.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Leaching

    The depletion of soluble materials from the upper soil by downward-percolating water.

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Mineral resource

    All discovered and undiscovered deposits of a useful mineral that can be extracted now or at some time in the future.

  • Offshore zone

    The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.

  • Pleistocene epoch

    An epoch of the Quaternary period beginning about 1.8 million years ago and ending about 10,000 years ago. Best known as a time of extensive continental glaciation.

  • 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.

  • Psychrometer

    A device consisting of two thermometers (wet bulb and dry bulb) that is rapidly whirled and, with the use of tables, yields the relative humidity and dew point.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Seismogram

    The record made by a seismograph.

  • Trophic level

    A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
