Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Advection

    Horizontal convective motion, such as wind.

  • Barchan dune

    A solitary sand dune shaped like a crescent with its tips pointing downward.

  • Cavern

    A naturally formed underground chamber or series of chambers most commonly produced by solution activity in limestone.

  • Daily mean

    The mean temperature for a day that is determined by averaging the 24 hourly readings or, more commonly, by averaging the maximum and minimum temperatures for a day.

  • El Niño

    The name given to the periodic warming of the ocean that occurs in the central and eastern Pacific. A major El Niño episode can cause extreme weather in many parts of the world.

  • Electron

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

  • Fissure eruption

    An eruption in which lava is extruded from narrow fractures or cracks in the crust.

  • Frost wedging

    The mechanical breakup of rock caused by the expansion of freezing water in cracks and crevices.

  • Graded bed

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

  • Hydrothermal solution

    The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Lava

    Magma that reaches Earth’s surface.

  • Magmatic differentiation

    The process of generating more than one rock type from a single magma.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Orbit

    The path of a body in revolution around a center of mass.

  • Plate

    See Lithospheric plate.

  • Rain

    Drops of water that fall from clouds that have a diameter of at least 0.5 millimeter (0.02 inch).

  • Red giant

    A large, cool star of high luminosity; a star occupying the upper-right portion of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.

  • Saltation

    Transportation of sediment through a series of leaps or bounces.

  • Stable platform

    That part of the craton that is mantled by relatively undeformed sedimentary rocks and underlain by a basement complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks.
