Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Active continental margin

    Usually narrow and consisting of highly deformed sediments. They occur where oceanic lithosphere is being subducted beneath the margin of a continent.

  • Albedo

    The reflectivity of a substance, usually expressed as a percentage of the incident radiation reflected.

  • Batholith

    A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

  • Conduction

    The transfer of heat through matter by molecular activity. Energy is transferred through collisions from one molecule to another.

  • Cone of depression

    A cone-shaped depression in the water table immediately surrounding a well.

  • Convergence

    The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal inflow of air into the area. Because convergence at lower levels is associated with an upward movement of air, areas of convergent winds are regions favorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

  • Fossil

    The remains or traces of organisms preserved from the geologic past.

  • Gondwanaland

    The southern portion of Pangaea consisting of South America, Africa, Australia, India, and Antarctica.

  • Hard stabilization

    Any form of artificial structure built to protect a coast or to prevent the movement of sand along a beach. Examples include groins, jetties, breakwaters, and seawalls.

  • Land breeze

    A local wind blowing from land toward the water during the night in coastal areas.

  • Monocline

    A one-limbed flexure in strata. The strata are unusually flat-lying or very gently dipping on both sides of the monocline.

  • Nuclear fusion

    The source of the Sun’s energy.

  • Ore

    Usually a useful metallic mineral that can be mined at a profit. The term is also applied to certain nonmetallic minerals such as fluorite and sulfur.

  • Overrunning

    Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

  • Porphyritic texture

    An igneous texture consisting of large crystals embedded in a matrix of much smaller crystals.

  • Salinity

    The proportion of dissolved salts to pure water, usually expressed in parts per thousand (%).

  • Scoria

    Hardened lava that has retained the vesicles produced by escaping gases.

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.

  • Wash

    A common term for a desert stream course that is typically dry except for brief periods immediately following a rain.
