Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute instability

    Air that has a lapse rate greater than the dry adiabatic rate.

  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Cenozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale beginning about 65 million years ago following the Mesozoic era.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Detrital sedimentary rock

    Rock formed from the accumulation of material that originated and was transported in the form of solid particles derived from both mechanical and chemical weathering.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Euphotic zone

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

  • Galactic cluster

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

  • Inclusion

    A piece of one rock unit contained within another. Inclusions are used in relative dating. The rock mass adjacent to the one containing the inclusion must have been there first in order to provide the fragment.

  • Laccolith

    A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.

  • Latent heat

    The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.

  • Loess

    Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Modified

    Mercalli intensity scale A 12-point scale developed to evaluate earthquake intensity based on the amount of damage to various structures.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Regolith

    The layer of rock and mineral fragments that nearly everywhere covers Earth’s surface.

  • Soil profile

    A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.

  • Solar nebula

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

  • Thermohaline circulation

    Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.

  • Zodiac

    A band along the ecliptic containing the 12 constellations of the zodiac.
