Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Anemometer

    An instrument used to determine wind speed.

  • Asthenosphere

    A subdivision of the mantle situated below the lithosphere. This zone of weak material exists below a depth of about 100 kilometers and in some regions extends as deep as 700 kilometers. The rock within this zone is easily deformed.

  • Compressional mountains

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

  • Continental rise

    The gently sloping surface at the base of the continental slope.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Energy levels

    Spherically shaped, negatively charged zones that surround the nucleus of an atom.

  • Floodplain

    The flat, low-lying portion of a stream valley subject to periodic inundation.

  • Geyser

    A fountain of hot water ejected periodically.

  • Hydrothermal solution

    The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.

  • Main-sequence stars

    A sequence of stars on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram, containing the majority of stars, that runs diagonally from the upper left to the lower right.

  • Maria

    The Latin name for the smooth areas of the Moon formerly thought to be seas.

  • Playa lake

    A temporary lake in a playa.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.

  • Thrust fault

    A low-angle reverse fault.

  • Tidal current

    The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Troposphere

    The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.

  • Visible light

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.

  • Wind vane

    An instrument used to determine wind direction.
