Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Acid precipitation

    Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.

  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • 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.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Covalent bond

    A chemical bond produced by the sharing of electrons.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Era

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

  • Fine-grained texture

    A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.

  • Groin

    A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • Hurricane

    A tropical cyclonic storm having winds in excess of 119 kilometers (74 miles) per hour.

  • Lithification

    The process, generally cementation and/or compaction, of converting sediments to solid rock.

  • Lithospheric plate

    A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.

  • Meteor

    The luminous phenomenon observed when a meteoroid enters Earth’s atmosphere and burns up; popularly called a “shooting star.”

  • Normal polarity

    A magnetic field that is the same as that which exists at present.

  • Solar nebula

    The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.

  • Steam fog

    Fog having the appearance of steam, produced by evaporation from a warm water surface into the cool air above.

  • Suspended load

    The fine sediment carried within the body of flowing water.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Zone of saturation

    Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
