Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Capacity

    The total amount of sediment a stream is able to transport.

  • Crater

    The depression at the summit of a volcano, or that which is produced by a meteorite impact.

  • Estuary

    A partially enclosed coastal water body that is connected to the ocean. Salinity here is measurably reduced by the freshwater flow of rivers

  • Gondwanaland

    The southern portion of Pangaea consisting of South America, Africa, Australia, India, and Antarctica.

  • Horst

    An elongated, uplifted block of crust bounded by faults.

  • Humus

    Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

  • Ionic bond

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

  • Iron meteorite

    One of the three main categories of meteorites. This group is composed largely of iron with varying amounts of nickel (5–20 percent). Most meteorite finds are irons.

  • Perturbation

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

  • Radial pattern

    A system of streams running in all directions away from a central elevated structure, such as a volcano.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Sediment

    Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.

  • Shore

    Seaward of the coast, this zone extends from the highest level of wave action during storms to the lowest tide level.

  • 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.

  • Spectroscope

    An instrument for directly viewing the spectrum of a light source.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Texture

    The size, shape, and distribution of the particles that collectively constitute a rock.

  • Thermal gradient

    The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.

  • White dwarf

    A star that has exhausted most or all of its nuclear fuel and has collapsed to a very small size; believed to be near its final stage of evolution.
