Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • 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.

  • Batholith

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

  • Braided stream

    A stream consisting of numerous intertwining channels.

  • Chemical sedimentary rock

    Sedimentary rock consisting of material that was precipitated from water by either inorganic or organic means.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Divide

    An imaginary line that separates the drainage of two streams; often found along a ridge.

  • Echo sounder

    An instrument used to determine the depth of water by measuring the time interval between emission of a sound signal and the return of its echo from the bottom.

  • Inner planets

    See Terrestrial planets.

  • Latent heat

    The energy absorbed or released during a change in state.

  • Mixing ratio

    The mass of water vapor in a unit mass of dry air; commonly expressed as grams of water vapor per kilogram of dry air.

  • Nonfoliated texture

    Metamorphic rocks that do not exhibit foliation.

  • Paleomagnetism

    The natural remnant magnetism in rock bodies. The permanent magnetization acquired by rock that can be used to determine the location of the magnetic poles and the latitude of the rock at the time it became magnetized.

  • Residual soil

    Soil developed directly from the weathering of the bedrock below.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Settling velocity

    The speed at which a particle falls through a still fluid. The size, shape, and specific gravity of particles influence settling velocity.

  • Shield

    A large, relatively flat expanse of ancient metamorphic rock within the stable continental interior.

  • Spiral galaxy

    A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.

  • Till

    Unsorted sediment deposited directly by a glacier.

  • Upslope fog

    Fog created when air moves up a slope and cools adiabatically.

  • Upwelling

    The rising of cold water from deeper layers to replace warmer surface water that has been moved away.
