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.

  • Annual temperature range

    The difference between the highest and lowest monthly temperature means.

  • Atoll

    A continuous or broken ring of coral reef surrounding a central lagoon.

  • Chemical weathering

    The processes by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the removal and/or addition of elements.

  • Col

    A pass between mountain valleys where the headwalls of two cirques intersect.

  • Discharge

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

  • Fold

    A bent rock layer or series of layers that were originally horizontal and subsequently deformed.

  • Geothermal energy

    Natural steam used for power generation.

  • Graded bed

    A sediment layer that is characterized by a decrease in sediment size from bottom to top.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Interior drainage

    A discontinuous pattern of intermittent streams that do not flow to the ocean.

  • Meteorology

    The scientific study of the atmosphere and atmospheric phenomena; the study of weather and climate.

  • Offshore zone

    The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.

  • Pangaea

    The proposed supercontinent that 200 million years ago began to break apart and form the present landmasses.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Sidereal month

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

  • Spring

    A flow of groundwater that emerges naturally at the ground surface.

  • Stable air

    Air that resists vertical displacement. If it is lifted, adiabatic cooling will cause its temperature to be lower than the surrounding environment; if it is allowed, it will sink to its original position.

  • Tidal flat

    A marshy or muddy area that is covered and uncovered by the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Troposphere

    The lowermost layer of the atmosphere. It is generally characterized by a decrease in temperature with height.
