Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Accretionary wedge

    A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.

  • Competence

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

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Curie point

    The temperature above which a material loses its magnetization.

  • Cut bank

    The area of active erosion on the outside of a meander.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Earth science

    The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • External process

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

  • Fog

    A cloud with its base at or very near Earth’s surface.

  • Hanging valley

    A tributary valley that enters a glacial trough at a considerable height above its floor.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Köppen classification

    A system for classifying climates devised by Wladimir Köppen that is based on mean monthly and annual values of temperature and precipitation.

  • Moment magnitude

    A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.

  • Ozone

    A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.

  • Radio interferometer

    Two or more radio telescopes that combine their signals to achieve the resolving power of a larger telescope.

  • Secondary (S) wave

    A seismic wave that involves oscillation perpendicular to the direction of propagation.

  • Sediment

    Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.

  • Snowfield

    An area where snow persists yearround.
