Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Aneroid barometer

    An instrument for measuring air pressure that consists of evacuated metal chambers very sensitive to variations in air pressure.

  • Barred spiral galaxy

    A galaxy having straight arms extending from its nucleus.

  • Bituminous

    The most common form of coal, often called soft, black coal.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Elastic rebound

    The sudden release of stored strain in rocks that results in movement along a fault.

  • Frost wedging

    The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Hypothesis

    A tentative explanation that is tested to determine if it is valid.

  • Intensity (earthquake)

    A measure of the degree of earthquake shaking at a given locale based on the amount of damage.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • 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.

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Orogenesis

    The processes that collectively result in the formation of mountains.

  • Paleontology

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

  • Stellar parallax

    A measure of stellar distance.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.
