Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Accretionary wedge

A large wedge-shaped mass of sediment that accumulates in subduction zones. Here, sediment is scraped from the subducting oceanic plate and accreted to the overriding crustal block.

• Angular unconformity

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

• Conduit

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

• Contact metamorphism

Changes in rock caused by the heat from a nearby magma body.

• Divergence

The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

• Equatorial system

A method of locating stellar objects much like the coordinate system used on Earth’s surface.

• Filaments

Dark, thin streaks that appear across the bright solar disk.

• Freezing nuclei

Solid particles that serve as cores for the formation of ice crystals.

• Impact craters

Depressions that are the result of collisions with bodies such as asteroids and comets.

• Index fossil

A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.

• Low-velocity zone

See Asthenosphere.

• Melt

The liquid portion of magma, excluding the solid crystals.

• Paleontology

The systematic study of fossils and the history of life on Earth.

• Proterozoic eon

The eon following the Archean and preceding the Phanerozoic. It extends between about 2,500 million (2.5 billion) and 540 million years ago.

• Relative humidity

The ratio of the air’s watervapor content to its water-vapor capacity.

• Reverse polarity

A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

• Saturation

The maximum quantity of water vapor that the air can hold at any given temperature and pressure.

• Spring

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

• Tectonics

The study of the large-scale processes that collectively deform Earth’s crust.

• Wavelength

The horizontal distance separating successive crests or troughs.
