Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal plain

    Very level area of the deep-ocean floor, usually lying at the foot of the continental rise.

  • Angular unconformity

    An unconformity in which the strata below dip at an angle different from that of the beds above.

  • Cirque

    An amphitheater-shaped basin at the head of a glaciated valley produced by frost wedging and plucking.

  • Condensation nuclei

    Tiny bits of particulate matter that serve as surfaces on which water vapor condenses.

  • Conduit

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

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Cyclone

    A low-pressure center characterized by a counterclockwise flow of air in the Northern Hemisphere.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Fluorescence

    The absorption of ultraviolet light, which is reemitted as visible light.

  • Jetties

    A pair of structures extending into the ocean at the entrance to a harbor or river that are built for the purpose of protecting against storm waves and sediment deposition.

  • Mass number

    The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Placer

    Deposit formed when heavy minerals are mechanically concentrated by currents, most commonly streams and waves. Placers are sources of gold, tin, platinum, diamonds, and other valuable minerals.

  • Plankton

    Passively drifting or weakly swimming organisms that cannot move independently of ocean currents. Includes microscopic algae, protozoa, jellyfish, and larval forms of many animals.

  • Plate tectonics

    The theory that proposes that Earth’s outer shell consists of individual plates that interact in various ways and thereby produce earthquakes, volcanoes, mountains, and the crust itself.

  • Saltation

    Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.

  • Steppe

    One of the two types of dry climate. A marginal and more humid variant of the desert that separates it from bordering humid climates.

  • Terrae

    The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.

  • Wavelength

    The horizontal distance separating successive crests or troughs.
