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.

  • Air pressure

    The force exerted by the weight of a column of air above a given point.

  • Apparent magnitude

    The brightness of a star when viewed from Earth.

  • Bathymetry

    The measurement of ocean depths and the charting of the shape or topography of the ocean floor.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Calving

    Wastage of a glacier that occurs when large pieces of ice break off into water.

  • Dew-point temperature

    The temperature to which air has to be cooled in order to reach saturation.

  • Element

    A substance that cannot be decomposed into simpler substances by ordinary chemical or physical means.

  • Fall

    A type of movement common to mass-wasting processes that refers to the free falling of detached individual pieces of any size.

  • Infiltration

    The movement of surface water into rock or soil through cracks and pore spaces.

  • Intraplate volcanism

    Igneous activity that occurs within a tectonic plate away from plate boundaries.

  • Kettle holes

    Depressions created when blocks of ice became lodged in glacial deposits and subsequently melted.

  • Kuiper belt

    A region outside the orbit of Neptune where most short-period comets are thought to originate.

  • Mantle

    The 2,900-kilometer- (1,800-mile-) thick layer of Earth located below the crust.

  • Planetary nebula

    A shell of incandescent gas expanding from a star.

  • Point bar

    A crescent-shaped accumulation of sand and gravel deposited on the inside of a meander.

  • Santa Ana

    The local name given a chinook wind in southern California.

  • Stratus

    One of three basic cloud forms; also, the name given one of the flow clouds. They are sheets or layers that cover much or all of the sky
