Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Angular unconformity

    An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.

  • Asteroids

    Thousands of small planetlike bodies, ranging in size from a few hundred kilometers to less than a kilometer, whose orbits lie mainly between those of Mars and Jupiter.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • Compressional mountains

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

  • Divide

    An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.

  • Emission nebula

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

  • Fluorescence

    The absorption of ultraviolet light, which is reemitted as visible light.

  • Food chain

    A succession of organisms in an ecological community through which food energy is transferred from producers through herbivores and on to one or more carnivores.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Mean solar day

    The average time between two passages of the Sun across the local celestial meridian.

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Orographic lifting

    Mountains acting as barriers to the flow of air, forcing the air to ascend. The air cools adiabatically, and clouds and precipitation may result.

  • Outgassing

    The escape of gases that had been dissolved in magma.

  • Physical environment

    The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.

  • Principal shells

    See Energy levels.

  • Sedimentary rock

    Rock formed from the weathered products of preexisting rocks that have been transported, deposited, and lithified.

  • Supercontinent

    A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.

  • Thermal metamorphism

    See Contact metamorphism.

  • Westerlies

    The dominant west-to-east motion of the atmosphere that characterizes the regions on the poleward side of the subtropical highs.
