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.

  • Alpine glacier

    A glacier confined to a mountain valley, which in most instances had previously been a stream valley.

  • Altitude (of the Sun)

    The angle of the Sun above the horizon.

  • Astronomical unit (AU)

    Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or

  • Atoll

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

  • Clastic rock

    A sedimentary rock made of broken fragments of preexisting rock.

  • Comet

    A small body that generally revolves about the Sun in an elongated orbit.

  • Cross-cutting

    A principle of relative dating. A rock or fault is younger than any rock (or fault) through which it cuts.

  • Frontal wedging

    Lifting of air resulting when cool air acts as a barrier over which warmer, lighter air will rise.

  • Highland climate

    Complex pattern of climate conditions associated with mountains. Highland climates are characterized by large differences that occur over short distances.

  • Hot spot

    A concentration of heat in the mantle capable of producing magma, which in turn extrudes onto Earth’s surface. The intraplate volcanism that produced the Hawaiian Islands is one example.

  • Interstellar matter

    Dust and gases found between stars.

  • Ion

    An atom or molecule that possesses an electrical charge.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Magnetic reversal

    A change in Earth’s magnetic field from normal to reverse or vice versa.

  • Magnitude (earthquake)

    The total amount of energy released during an earthquake.

  • Reverse fault

    A fault in which the material above the fault plane moves up in relation to the material below.

  • Tropopause

    The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.

  • Zone of saturation

    Zone where all open spaces in sediment and rock are completely filled with water.
