Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Baymouth bar

    A sandbar that completely crosses a bay, sealing it off from the open ocean.

  • Black dwarf

    A final state of evolution for a star, in which all of its energy sources are exhausted and it no longer emits radiation.

  • Coast

    A strip of land that extends inland from the coastline as far as ocean-related features can be found.

  • Diffused light

    Solar energy scattered and reflected in the atmosphere that reaches Earth’s surface in the form of diffuse blue light from the sky.

  • Divergent boundary

    A region where the rigid plates are moving apart, typified by the midoceanic ridges.

  • Drumlin

    A streamlined asymmetrical hill composed of glacial till. The steep side of the hill faces the direction from which the ice advanced.

  • Exotic stream

    A permanent stream that traverses a desert and has its source in well-watered areas outside the desert.

  • Humus

    Organic matter in soil produced by the decomposition of plants and animals.

  • Lunar regolith

    A thin, gray layer on the surface of the Moon, consisting of loosely compacted, fragmented material believed to have been formed by repeated meteoritic impacts.

  • Mohorovicˆi´c; discontinuity (Moho)

    The boundary separating the crust from the mantle, discernible by an increase in seismic velocity.

  • Ozone

    A molecule of oxygen containing three oxygen atoms.

  • Parcel

    An imaginary volume of air enclosed in a thin elastic cover. Typically it is considered to be a few hundred cubic meters in volume and is assumed to act independently of the surrounding air.

  • Precession

    See Axial precession.

  • Rift valley

    A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.

  • Rock flour

    Ground-up rock produced by the grinding effect of a glacier.

  • Slide

    A movement common to mass-wasting processes in which the material moving downslope remains fairly coherent and moves along a well-defined surface.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Surface waves

    Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.

  • Talus

    An accumulation of rock debris at the base of a cliff.

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.
