Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Acid precipitation

    Rain or snow with a pH value that is less than the pH of unpolluted precipitation.

  • Atomic weight

    The average of the atomic masses of isotopes for a given element.

  • Bar

    Common term for sand and gravel deposits in a stream channel.

  • Bed load

    Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.

  • Corona

    The outer, tenuous layer of the solar atmosphere.

  • Crystal shape

    See Habit.

  • Doppler effect

    The apparent change in wavelength of radiation caused by the relative motions of the source and the observer.

  • Elastic rebound

    The sudden release of stored strain in rocks that results in movement along a fault.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Geosphere

    The solid Earth, the largest of Earth’s four major spheres.

  • Ground moraine

    An undulating layer of till deposited as the ice front retreats.

  • Half-life

    The time required for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to decay.

  • Hydrosphere

    The water portion of our planet; one of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • Isostasy

    The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.

  • Laurasia

    The northern portion of Pangaea consisting of North America and Eurasia.

  • Monocline

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

  • Nonrenewable resource

    Resource that forms or accumulates over such long time spans that it must be considered as fixed in total quantity.

  • Slab pull

    A mechanism that contributes to plate motion in which cool, dense oceanic crust sinks into the mantle and “pulls” the trailing lithosphere along.

  • Transform fault

    A major strike-slip fault that cuts through the lithosphere and accommodates motion between two plates.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.
