Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aftershocks

    Smaller earthquakes that follow the main earthquake.

  • Banded iron formations

    A finely layered iron and silica-rich (chert) layer deposited mainly during the Precambrian.

  • Cinder cone

    A rather small volcano built primarily of pyroclastics ejected from a single vent.

  • 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.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Debris flow

    A relatively rapid type of mass wasting that involves a flow of soil and regolith containing a large amount of water. Also called mudflows.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Fossil succession

    Fossil organisms that succeed one another in a definite and determinable order, and any time period can be recognized by its fossil content.

  • Ionosphere

    A complex zone of ionized gases that coincides with the lower portion of the thermosphere.

  • Jet stream

    Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.

  • Mean solar day

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

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Rift valley

    A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Sea stack

    An isolated mass of rock standing just offshore, produced by wave erosion of a headland.

  • Sheeting

    A mechanical weathering process characterized by the splitting-off of slablike sheets of rock.

  • Soil texture

    The relative proportions of clay, silt, and sand in a soil. Texture strongly influences the soil’s ability to retain and transmit water and air.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Supercontinent

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

  • White frost

    Ice crystals instead of dew that form on surfaces when the dew point is below freezing.
