Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Archean eon

    The second eon of Precambrian time, following the Hadean and preceding the Proterozoic. It extends between 3.8 billion and 2.5 billion years before the present.

  • Barometric tendency

    See Pressure tendency.

  • Columnar joints

    A pattern of cracks that form during cooling of molten rock to generate columns that are generally six-sided.

  • Dwarf galaxy

    Very small galaxies, usually elliptical and lacking spiral arms.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Environment

    Everything that surrounds and influences an organism.

  • Eye

    A zone of scattered clouds and calm averaging about 20 kilometers in diameter at the center of a hurricane.

  • Groin

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

  • Index fossil

    A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.

  • Mass number

    The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Meander

    A looplike bend in the course of a stream.

  • Mixing depth

    The height to which convectional movements extend above Earth’s surface. The greater the mixing depth, the better the air quality.

  • Specific gravity

    The ratio of a substance’s weight to the weight of an equal volume of water.

  • Stony meteorite

    One of the three main categories of meteorites. Such meteorites are composed largely of silicate minerals with inclusions of other minerals.

  • Supercooled

    The condition of water droplets that remain in the liquid state at temperatures well below 0° C.

  • Supergiant

    A very large star of high luminosity.

  • Tectonics

    The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.

  • Tropic of Capricorn

    The parallel of latitude, 231?2 degrees south latitude, marking the southern limit of the Sun’s verticalrays.

  • Tropical depression

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds that do not exceed 61 kilometers (38 miles) per hour.

  • Volcanic island arc

    A chain of volcanic islands generally located a few hundred kilometers from a trench where active subduction of one oceanic slab beneath another is occurring.
