Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Breccia

    A sedimentary rock composed of angular fragments that were lithified.

  • Caldera

    A large depression typically caused by collapse or ejection of the summit area of a volcano.

  • Eccentricity

    The variation of an ellipse from a circle.

  • Estuary

    A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers

  • Focus (light)

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

  • Fumarole

    A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • Paleontology

    The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.

  • Principal shells

    See Energy levels.

  • Refracting telescope

    A telescope that employs a lens to bend and concentrate the light from distant objects.

  • Shadow zone

    The zone between 104 and 143 degrees distance from an earthquake epicenter in which direct waves do not arrive because of refraction by Earth’s core.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Soil taxonomy

    A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.

  • Solar constant

    The rate at which solar radiation is received outside Earth’s atmosphere on a surface perpendicular to the Sun’s rays when Earth is at an average distance from the Sun.

  • Travertine

    A form of limestone that is deposited by hot springs or as a cave deposit.

  • Unsaturated zone

    The area above the water table where openings in soil, sediment, and rock are not saturated but filled mainly with air.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.

  • Weathering

    The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.

  • Zooplankton

    Animal plankton.
