Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Air

    A mixture of many discrete gases, of which nitrogen and oxygen are most abundant, in which varying quantities of tiny solid and liquid particles are suspended.

  • Bituminous

    The most common form of coal, often called soft, black coal.

  • Cold front

    A front along which a cold air mass thrusts beneath a warmer air mass.

  • Column

    A feature found in caves that is formed when a stalactite and stalagmite join.

  • Crevasse

    A deep crack in the brittle surface of a glacier.

  • Crystal form

    See Habit.

  • Dwarf planets

    Celestial bodies that orbit stars, massive enough to be spherical but have not cleared their neighboring regions of planetesimals.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Gravitational collapse

    The gradual subsidence of mountains caused by lateral spreading of weak material located deep within these structures.

  • Obsidian

    A volcanic glass of felsic composition.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Regional metamorphism

    Metamorphism associated with large-scale mountain-building processes.

  • Rockslide

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

  • Seafloor spreading

    The process of producing new seafloor between two diverging plates.

  • Subarctic climate

    A climate found north of the humid continental climate and south of the polar climate and characterized by bitterly cold winters and short, cool summers. Places within this climatic realm experience the highest annual temperature ranges on Earth.

  • Tornado watch

    A warning issued for areas of about 65,000 square kilometers (25,000 square miles), indicating that conditions are such that tornadoes may develop; it is intended to alert people to the possibility of tornadoes.

  • Trellis pattern

    A system of streams in which nearly parallel tributaries occupy valleys cut in folded strata.

  • Tropical wet and dry

    A climate that is transitional between the wet tropics and the subtropical steppes.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.

  • Zone of accumulation

    The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
