Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquitard

    Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.

  • Barograph

    A recording barometer.

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Deformation

    General term for the processes of folding, faulting, shearing, compression, or extension of rocks as the result of various natural forces.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Electromagnetic radiation

    See Radiation.

  • Epicenter

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

  • Esker

    Sinuous ridge composed largely of sand and gravel deposited by a stream flowing in a tunnel beneath a glacier near its terminus.

  • Extrusive

    Igneous activity that occurs outside the crust.

  • Focus (light)

    The point where a lens or mirror causes light rays to converge.

  • Gravitational collapse

    The gradual subsidence of mountains caused by lateral spreading of weak material located deep within these structures.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Lunar breccia

    A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Soil profile

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

  • Spiral galaxy

    A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.

  • Volcanic neck

    An isolated, steep-sided, erosional remnant consisting of lava that once occupied the vent of a volcano.

  • Wave of translation

    The turbulent advance of water created by breaking waves.
