Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Blowout (deflation hollow)

    A depression excavated by the wind in easily eroded deposits.

  • Conduit

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

  • Convection

    The transfer of heat by the movement of a mass or substance. It can take place only in fluids.

  • Deep-ocean trench

    See Trench.

  • Lightning

    A sudden flash of light generated by the flow of electrons between oppositely charged parts of a cumulonimbus cloud or between the cloud and the ground.

  • Lunar highlands

    See Terrae.

  • Meteoroid

    Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.

  • Negative feedback mechanism

    A feedback mechanism that tends to maintain a system as it is—that is, maintain the status quo.

  • Oceanic plateau

    An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.

  • Parabolic dunes

    The shape of these dunes resembles barchans, except their tips point into the wind; they often form along coasts that have strong onshore winds, abundant sand, and vegetation that partly covers the sand.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Radioactive decay

    The spontaneous decay of certain unstable atomic nuclei.

  • Revolution

    The motion of one body about another, as Earth about the Sun.

  • Sinkhole

    A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • Striations (glacial)

    Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Supernova

    An exploding star that increases in brightness many thousands of times.

  • Surface waves

    Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.
