Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Adiabatic temperature change

    Cooling or warming of air caused when air is allowed to expand or is compressed, not because heat is added or subtracted.

  • Bright nebula

    A cloud of glowing gas excited by ultraviolet radiation from hot stars.

  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Cluster (star)

    A large group of stars.

  • Contact metamorphism

    Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

  • Debris flow

    A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Fault

    A break in a rock mass along which movement has occurred.

  • Geothermal energy

    Natural steam used for power generation.

  • Hertzsprung-Russell diagram

    See H-R diagram.

  • Lithospheric plate

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

  • Marine west coast climate

    A climate found on windward coasts from latitudes 40–65 degrees and dominated by maritime air masses. Winters are mild and summers are cool

  • Metamorphic rock

    Rocks formed by the alteration of preexisting rock deep within Earth (but still in the solid state) by heat, pressure, and/or chemically active fluids.

  • Oort cloud

    A spherical shell composed of comets that orbit the Sun at distances generally greater than 10,000 times the Earth–Sun distance.

  • Paleontology

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

  • Perturbation

    The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Storm surge

    The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.

  • Tornado

    A small, very intense cyclonic storm with exceedingly high winds, most often produced along cold fronts in conjunction with severe thunderstorms.
