Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aquitard

    Impermeable beds that hinder or prevent groundwater movement.

  • Atmosphere

    The gaseous portion of a planet; the planet’s envelope of air. One of the traditional subdivisions of Earth’s physical environment.

  • 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.

  • Color

    A phenomenon of light by which otherwise identical objects may be differentiated.

  • Crystal form

    See Habit.

  • Drawdown

    The difference in height between the bottom of a cone of depression and the original height of the water table.

  • Electromagnetic spectrum

    The distribution of electromagnetic radiation by wavelength.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Laminar flow

    The movement of water particles in straight-line paths that are parallel to the channel. The water particles move downstream without mixing.

  • Low-velocity zone

    See Asthenosphere.

  • Oceanic plateau

    An extensive region on the ocean floor composed of thick accumulations of pillow basalts and other mafic rocks that in some cases exceed 30 kilometers in thickness.

  • Oceanography

    The scientific study of the oceans and oceanic phenomena.

  • 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.

  • Principal shells

    See Energy levels.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Spring tide

    Highest tidal range that occurs near the times of the new and full moons.

  • Stratosphere

    The layer of the atmosphere immediately above the troposphere, characterized by increasing temperatures with height, owing to the concentration of ozone.

  • Thermohaline circulation

    Movements of ocean water caused by density differences brought about by variations in temperature and salinity.
