Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anticline

    A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.

  • Aquifer

    Rock or soil through which groundwater moves easily.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Cirrus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also one of the three high cloud types. They are thin, delicate ice-crystal clouds often appearing as veil-like patches or thin, wispy fibers.

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Discordant

    A term used to describe plutons that cut across existing rock structures, such as bedding planes.

  • Element

    A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.

  • Emission spectrum

    See Bright-line spectrum

  • Galactic cluster

    Groups of gravitationally bound galaxies that sometimes contain thousands of galaxies.

  • Half graben

    A tilted fault block in which the higher side is associated with mountainous topography and the lower side is a basin that fills with sediment.

  • High cloud

    A cloud that normally has its base above 6,000 meters; the base may be lower in winter and at high-latitude locations.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Index fossil

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

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Perched water table

    A localized zone of saturation above the main water table created by an impermeable layer (aquiclude).

  • Rockslide

    The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.

  • Sinkhole

    A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.

  • Tropical storm

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds between 61 and 119 kilometers (38 and 74 miles) per hour.

  • Well

    An opening bored into the zone of saturation.

  • Zone of saturation

    Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
