Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Beach face

    The wet, sloping surface that extends from the berm to the shoreline.

  • Carbonate group

    Mineral group whose members contain the carbonate ion and one or more kinds of positive ions. Calcite is a common example.

  • Foreshocks

    Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Groin

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

  • Karst

    A topography consisting of numerous depressions called sinkholes.

  • Mantle plume

    A mass of hotter-than-normal mantle material that ascends toward the surface, where it may lead to igneous activity. These plumes of solid yet mobile material may originate as deep as the core–mantle boundary.

  • Nuée ardente

    Incandescent volcanic debris buoyed up by hot gases that moves downslope in an avalanche fashion.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Plate tectonics

    The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.

  • Polar wandering

    As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Reserve

    Already identified deposits from which minerals can be extracted profitably.

  • Rime

    A thin coating of ice on objects produced when supercooled fog droplets freeze on contact.

  • Rock cycle

    A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Semidiurnal tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

  • Stony meteorite

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

  • Tectonics

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

  • Weathering

    The disintegration and decomposition of rock at or near Earth’s surface.
