Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Alluvial fan

    A fan-shaped deposit of sediment formed when a stream’s slope is abruptly reduced.

  • Axial precession

    A slow motion of Earth’s axis that traces out a cone over a period of 26,000 years.

  • Beach nourishment

    The process by which large quantities of sand are added to the beach system to offset losses caused by wave erosion.

  • Breakwater

    A structure protecting a nearshore area from breaking waves.

  • Calorie

    The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.

  • Col

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

  • Cumulus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also the name given one of the clouds of vertical development. Cumulus are billowy individual cloud masses that often have flat bases.

  • Drainage basin

    The land area that contributes water to a stream.

  • Ice shelf

    Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.

  • Inselberg

    An isolated mountain remnant characteristic of the late stage of erosion in an arid region.

  • Leaching

    The depletion of soluble materials from the upper soil by downward-percolating water.

  • Lithospheric plate

    A coherent unit of Earth’s rigid outer layer that includes the crust and upper unit.

  • Meteoroid

    Small solid particles that have orbits in the solar system.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Polar wandering

    As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.

  • Radio interferometer

    Two or more radio telescopes that combine their signals to achieve the resolving power of a larger telescope.

  • Rockslide

    The rapid slide of a mass of rock downslope along planes of weakness.

  • Seismic waves

    A rapidly moving ocean wave generated by earthquake activity capable of inflicting heavy damage in coastal regions.

  • Small solar system bodies

    Solar system objects not classified as planets or moons that include dwarf planets, asteroids, comets, and meteoroids.
