Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air mass

    A large body of air that is characterized by a sameness of temperature and humidity.

  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Alluvium

    Unconsolidated sediment deposited by a stream.

  • Condensation nuclei

    Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.

  • Coral reef

    Structure formed in a warm, shallow, sunlit ocean environment that consists primarily of the calcite-rich remains of corals as well as the limy secretions of algae and the hard parts of many other small organisms.

  • Evaporation

    The process of converting a liquid to a gas.

  • Floodplain

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

  • Hubble’s law

    Relates the distance to a galaxy and its velocity.

  • Humidity

    A general term referring to water vapor in the air but not to liquid droplets of fog, cloud, or rain.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Igneous rock

    A rock formed by the crystallization of molten magma.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Melting

    The change of state from a solid to a liquid.

  • Meteorite

    Any portion of a meteoroid that survives its traverse through Earth’s atmosphere and strikes Earth’s surface.

  • Phanerozoic eon

    That part of geologic time represented by rocks containing abundant fossil evidence. The eon extending from the end of the Proterozoic eon (about 540 million years ago) to the present.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Pluton

    A structure that results from the emplacement and crystallization of magma beneath the surface of Earth.

  • Thermal gradient

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

  • Wave of oscillation

    A water wave in which the wave form advances as the water particles move in circular orbits.
