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.

  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • 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.

  • Coastline

    The coast’s seaward edge. The landward limit of the effect of the highest storm waves on the shore.

  • Collision–coalescence process

    A theory of raindrop formation in warm clouds (above 0° C) in which large cloud droplets (giants) collide and join together with smaller droplets to form a raindrop. Opposite electrical charges may bind the cloud droplets together.

  • Declination (stellar)

    The angular distance north or south of the celestial equator denoting the position of a celestial body.

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Disseminated deposit

    Any economic mineral deposit in which the desired mineral occurs as scattered particles in the rock but in sufficient quantity to make the deposit an ore.

  • Highland climate

    Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.

  • Inner core

    The solid innermost layer of Earth, about 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) in radius.

  • Lower mantle

    The part of the mantle that extends from the core–mantle boundary to a depth of 660 kilometers.

  • Mafic

    Igneous rocks with a low silica content and a high iron–magnesium content.

  • Penumbra

    The portion of a shadow from which only part of the light source is blocked by an opaque body.

  • Photochemical reaction

    A chemical reaction in the atmosphere that is triggered by sunlight, often yielding a secondary pollutant.

  • Rift valley

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

  • Volatiles

    Gaseous components of magma dissolved in the melt. Volatiles will readily vaporize (form a gas) at surface pressures.

  • Yazoo tributary

    A tributary that flows parallel to the main stream because a natural levee is present.

  • Zodiac

    A band along the ecliptic containing the 12 constellations of the zodiac.

  • Zone of wastage

    The part of a glacier beyond the zone of accumulation where all of the snow from the previous winter melts, as does some of the glacial ice.
