Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Conduit

    A pipelike opening through which magma moves toward Earth’s surface. It terminates at a surface opening called a vent.

  • Dissolved load

    That portion of a stream’s load carried in solution.

  • Drumlin

    A streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.

  • Environmental lapse rate

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

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Hydrosphere

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

  • Laccolith

    A massive igneous body intruded between preexisting strata.

  • Low

    A center of low pressure characterized by cyclonic winds.

  • Obliquity

    The angle between the planes of Earth’s equator and orbit.

  • Open system

    One in which both matter and energy flow into and out of the system. Most natural systems are of this type.

  • Outer planet

    See Jovian planet.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Pheoncryst

    Conspicuously large crystals embedded in a matrix of finer-grained crystals.

  • Rock cycle

    A model that illustrates the origin of the three basic rock types and the interrelatedness of Earth materials and processes.

  • Spit

    An elongated ridge of sand that projects from the land into the mouth of an adjacent bay.

  • Strike-slip fault

    A fault along which the movement is horizontal.

  • Thermocline

    A layer of water in which there is a rapid change in temperature in the vertical dimension.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.

  • Ultraviolet

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.

  • Upwelling

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