Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absorption spectrum

    A continuous spectrum with dark lines superimposed.

  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Base level

    The level below which a stream cannot erode.

  • Cepheid variable

    A star whose brightness varies periodically because it expands and contracts. A type of pulsating star.

  • Condensation nuclei

    Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.

  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Epicenter

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

  • Euphotic zone

    The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.

  • Flood basalts

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

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Galactic cluster

    Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Sill

    A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.

  • Sublimation

    The conversion of a solid directly to a gas without passing through the liquid state.

  • Sun are striking either the

    Tropic of Cancer or the Tropic of Capricorn. Solstice represents the longest or shortest day (length of daylight) of the year.

  • Temperature

    A measure of the degree of hotness or coldness of a substance; a measure of the average kinetic energy of individual atoms or molecules in a substance.

  • Theory

    A well-tested and widely accepted view that explains certain observable facts.
