Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Batholith

    A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

  • Bed load

    Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.

  • Benthos

    The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.

  • Big bang theory

    The theory that proposes that the universe originated as a single mass, which subsequently exploded.

  • Compressional mountains

    Mountains in which great horizontal forces have shortened and thickened the crust. Most major mountain belts are of this type.

  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Electron

    A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.

  • Groin

    A short wall built at a right angle to the shore to trap moving sand.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Loess

    Deposits of windblown silt, lacking visible layers, generally buff-colored, and capable of maintaining a nearly vertical cliff.

  • Luminosity

    The brightness of a star. The amount of energy radiated by a star.

  • Perihelion

    The point in the orbit of a planet where it is closest to the Sun.

  • Radio telescope

    A telescope designed to make observations in radio wavelengths.

  • Ray (lunar)

    Any of a system of bright elongated streaks, sometimes associated with a crater on the Moon.

  • Reflecting telescope

    A telescope that concentrates light from distant objects by using a concave mirror.

  • Reverse fault

    A fault in which the material above the fault plane moves up in relation to the material below.

  • Sidereal day

    The period of Earth’s rotation with respect to the stars.

  • Thermosphere

    The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.
