Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aurora

    A bright display of ever-changing light caused by solar radiation interacting with the upper atmosphere in the region of the poles.

  • Continental drift

    A theory that originally proposed that the continents are rafted about. It has essentially been replaced by the plate tectonics theory.

  • Environmental lapse rate

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

  • Evolution (Theory of)

    A fundamental theory in biology and paleontology that sets forth the process by which members of a population of organisms come to differ from their ancestors. Organisms evolve by means of mutations, natural selection, and genetic factors. Modern species are descended from related but different species that lived in earlier times.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Ground moraine

    An undulating layer of till deposited as the ice front retreats.

  • Half-life

    The time required for one-half of the atoms of a radioactive substance to decay.

  • Infrared

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.7 to 200 micrometers.

  • Octet rule

    Atoms combine in order that each may have the electron arrangement of a noble gas; that is, the outer energy level contains eight neutrons.

  • Playa

    A flat area on the floor of an undrained desert basin. Following heavy rain, the playa becomes a lake.

  • Relative dating

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

  • Sidereal month

    A time period based on the revolution of the Moon around Earth with respect to the stars.

  • Solar nebula

    The cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust from which the bodies of our solar system formed.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Stratovolcano

    See Composite cone.

  • Terrigenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments derived from terrestrial weathering and erosion.

  • Tropical depression

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

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.

  • Water table

    The upper level of the saturated zone of groundwater.
