Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Alpine glacier

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

  • Cassini division

    A wide gap in the ring system of Saturn between the A ring and the B ring.

  • Constellation

    An apparent group of stars originally named for mythical characters. The sky is presently divided into 88 constellations.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Cryovolcanism

    A type of volcanism that results from the eruption of magmas derived from the partial melting of ice.

  • Eukaryotes

    An organism whose genetic material is enclosed in a nucleus; plants, animals, and fungi are eukaryotes.

  • Fine-grained texture

    A texture of igneous rocks in which the crystals are too small for individual minerals to be distinguished with the unaided eye.

  • Humid subtropical climate

    A climate generally located on the eastern side of a continent and characterized by hot, sultry summers and cool winters.

  • Local group

    The cluster of 20 or so galaxies to which our galaxy belongs.

  • Mass number

    The number of neutrons and protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Massive

    An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Radiometric dating

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

  • Ridge push

    A mechanism that may contribute to plate motion. It involves the oceanic lithosphere sliding down the oceanic ridge under the pull of gravity.

  • Secondary pollutants

    Pollutants that are produced in the atmosphere by chemical reactions that occur among primary pollutants.

  • Spectroscopy

    The study of spectra.

  • Spiral galaxy

    A flattened, rotating galaxy with pinwheel-like arms of interstellar material and young stars winding out from its nucleus.

  • Spreading center

    See Divergent 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.

  • Superposition

    In any undeformed sequence of sedimentary rocks, each bed is older than the layers above and younger than the layers below.
