Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Asteroid belt

    The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

  • Base level

    The level below which a stream cannot erode.

  • Condensation

    The change of state from a gas to a liquid.

  • Discharge

    The quantity of water in a stream that passes a given point in a period of time.

  • Emission nebula

    A gaseous nebula that derives its visible light from the fluorescence of ultraviolet light from a star in or near the nebula.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Inertia

    A property of matter that resists a change in its motion.

  • Intrusive

    Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Perturbation

    The gravitational disturbance of the orbit of one celestial body by another.

  • Principal shells

    See Energy levels.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Recessional moraine

    An end moraine formed as the ice front stagnated during glacial retreat.

  • Relative dating

    Rocks are placed in their proper sequence or order. Only the chronological order of events is determined.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Soil

    A combination of mineral and organic matter, water, and air; that portion of the regolith that supports plant growth.

  • Tropical depression

    By international agreement, a tropical cyclone with maximum winds that do not exceed 61 kilometers (38 miles) per hour.

  • Ultimate base level

    Sea level; the lowest level to which stream erosion could lower the land.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.

  • Wave period

    The time interval between the passage of successive crests at a stationary point.
