Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Barchan dune

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

  • Bed load

    Sediment that is carried by a stream along the bottom of its channel.

  • Benthos

    The forms of marine life that live on or in the ocean bottom.

  • Continental (c) air mass

    An air mass that forms over land; it is normally relatively dry.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • 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.

  • Decompression melting

    Melting that occurs as rock ascends due to a drop in confining pressure.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • Fault scarp

    A cliff created by movement along a fault. It represents the exposed surface of the fault prior to modification by weathering and erosion.

  • Geologic time scale

    The division of Earth history into blocks of time—eons, eras, periods, and epochs. The time scale was created using relative dating principles.

  • Gyre

    The large circular surface current pattern found in each ocean.

  • Isotherms

    Lines connecting points of equal temperature.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

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

  • Model

    A term often used synonymously with hypothesis but is less precise because it is sometimes used to describe a theory as well.

  • Physical environment

    The part of the environment that encompasses water, air, soil, and rock, as well as conditions such as temperature, humidity, and sunlight.

  • Radiation fog

    Fog resulting from radiation heat loss by Earth.

  • Strike-slip fault

    A fault along which the movement is horizontal.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
