Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abyssal zone

    A subdivision of the benthic zone characterized by extremely high pressures, low temperatures, low oxygen, few nutrients, and no sunlight.

  • Beach

    An accumulation of sediment found along the landward margin of the ocean or a lake.

  • Biomass

    The total mass of a defined organism or group of organisms in a particular area or ecosystem.

  • Continental volcanic arc

    Mountains formed in part by igneous activity associated with the subduction of oceanic lithosphere beneath a continent.

  • Desalination

    The removal of salts and other chemicals from seawater.

  • Earthquake

    The vibration of Earth produced by the rapid release of energy.

  • Inclination of the axis

    The tilt of Earth’s axis from the perpendicular to the plane of Earth’s orbit.

  • La Niña

    An episode of strong trade winds and unusually low sea-surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific. The opposite of El Niño.

  • Maritime (m) air mass

    An air mass that originates over the ocean. These air masses are relatively humid.

  • Mass wasting

    The downslope movement of rock, regolith, and soil under the direct influence of gravity.

  • Offshore zone

    The relatively flat submerged zone that extends from the breaker line to the edge of the continental shelf.

  • 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.

  • Pyroclastic material

    The volcanic rock ejected during an eruption, including ash, bombs, and blocks.

  • Radiometric dating

    The procedure of calculating the absolute ages of rocks and minerals that contain radioactive isotopes.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Silicate

    Any one of numerous minerals that have the oxygen and silicon tetrahedron as their basic structure.

  • Stratovolcano

    See Composite cone.

  • Tundra climate

    Found almost exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere or at high altitudes in many mountainous regions. A treeless climatic realm of sedges, grasses, mosses, and lichens that is dominated by a long, bitterly cold winter.

  • Wave-cut platform

    A bench or shelf in the bedrock at sea level, cut by wave erosion.

  • Zone of accumulation

    The part of a glacier characterized by snow accumulation and ice formation. Its outer limit is the snowline.
