Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute magnitude

    The apparent brightness of a star if it were viewed from a distance of 10 parsecs (32.6 light-years). Used to compare the true brightness of stars.

  • Berm

    The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.

  • Climatology

    The scientific study of climate.

  • Conformable

    Layers of rock that were deposited without interruption.

  • Cosmology

    The study of the universe.

  • Crystal

    An orderly arrangement of atoms.

  • Delta

    An accumulation of sediment formed where a stream enters a lake or ocean.

  • Dome

    A roughly circular upfolded structure similar to an anticline.

  • Foreshocks

    Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.

  • Fossil succession

    Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Mesozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.

  • Mixed tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Spheroidal weathering

    Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.

  • Storm surge

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

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.
