Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Astronomy

    The scientific study of the universe; it includes the observation and interpretation of celestial bodies and phenomena.

  • Brittle deformation

    Deformation that involves the fracturing of rock. Associated with rocks near the surface.

  • Dark-line spectrum

    See Absorption spectrum.

  • Ductile deformation

    A type of solid state flow that produces a change in the size and shape of a rock body without fracturing. Occurs at depths where temperatures and confining pressures are high.

  • Earth science

    The name for all the sciences that collectively seek to understand Earth. It includes geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

  • Electron

    A negatively charged subatomic particle that has a negligible mass and is found outside an atom’s nucleus.

  • Front

    The boundary between two adjoining air masses having contrasting characteristics.

  • Globule

    A dense, dark nebula thought to be the birthplace of stars.

  • Hydrogen fusion

    The nuclear reaction in which hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei.

  • Lunar eclipse

    An eclipse of the Moon.

  • Parallax

    The apparent shift of an object when viewed from two different locations.

  • Photic zone

    The upper part of the ocean into which any sunlight penetrates.

  • Sediment

    Unconsolidated particles created by the weathering and erosion of rock, by chemical precipitation from solution in water, or from the secretions of organisms and transported by water, wind, or glaciers.

  • Spheroidal weathering

    Any weathering process that tends to produce a spherical shape from an initially blocky shape.

  • Submergent coast

    A coast with a form that is largely the result of the partial drowning of a former land surface either because of a rise of sea level or subsidence of the crust or both.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Sunspot

    A dark spot on the Sun, which is cool by contrast to the surrounding photosphere.

  • Visible light

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.4 to 0.7 micrometer.
