Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • Breccia

    A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.

  • Climatology

    The scientific study of climate.

  • Competence

    A measure of the largest particle a stream can transport; a factor dependent on velocity.

  • Continental margin

    That portion of the seafloor adjacent to the continents. It may include the continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise.

  • Correlation

    Establishing the equivalence of rocks of similar age in different areas.

  • Earthquake

    The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.

  • Fissure

    A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.

  • Fissure eruption

    An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.

  • Flood basalts

    Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.

  • Food web

    A group of interrelated food chains.

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Habit

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

  • Half-life

    The time required for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to decay.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Hydrogen burning

    The conversion of hydrogen through fusion to form helium.

  • Ionosphere

    A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.

  • Manganese nodules

    Rounded lumps of hydrogenous sediment scattered on the ocean floor, consisting mainly of manganese and iron and usually containing small amounts of copper, nickel, and cobalt.

  • Prokaryotes

    Refers to the cells or organisms such as bacteria whose genetic material is not enclosed in a nucleus.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.
