Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Absolute stability

    Air with a lapse rate less than the wet adiabatic rate.

  • Anthracite

    A hard, metamorphic form of coal that burns clean and hot.

  • Aphelion

    The place in the orbit of a planet where the planet is farthest from the Sun.

  • Basaltic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks indicating that the rock contains substantial dark silicate minerals and calciumrich plagioclase feldspar.

  • Chromosphere

    The first layer of the solar atmosphere found directly above the photosphere.

  • Conglomerate

    A sedimentary rock composed of rounded, gravel-size particles.

  • Distributary

    A section of a stream that leaves the main flow.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Frontal fog

    Fog formed when rain evaporates as it falls through a layer of cool air.

  • Glacial trough

    A mountain valley that has been widened, deepened, and straightened by a glacier.

  • Hydrogenous sediment

    Seafloor sediments consisting of minerals that crystallize from seawater. An important example is manganese nodules.

  • Interface

    A common boundary where different parts of a system interact.

  • Magnetic time scale

    A scale that shows the ages of magnetic reversals and is based on the polarity of lava flows of various ages.

  • Numerical date

    Date that specifies the actual number of years that have passed since an event occurred.

  • Striations (glacial)

    Scratches or grooves in a bedrock surface caused by the grinding action of a glacier and its load of sediment.

  • Supercontinent

    A large landmass that contains all, or nearly all, of the existing continents.

  • Thermosphere

    The region of the atmosphere immediately above the mesosphere and characterized by increasing temperatures due to absorption of very shortwave solar energy by oxygen.

  • Ultimate base level

    Sea level; the lowest level to which stream erosion could lower the land.

  • Valley breeze

    The daily upslope winds commonly encountered in a mountain valley.

  • Wave-cut platform

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