Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Asteroids

    Thousands of small planetlike bodies, ranging in size from a few hundred kilometers to less than a kilometer, whose orbits lie mainly between those of Mars and Jupiter.

  • Climate-feedback mechanism

    Because the atmosphere is a complex interactive physical system, several different possible outcomes may result when one of the system’s elements is altered. These various possibilities are called climate-feedback mechanisms.

  • Cloud

    A form of condensation best described as a dense concentration of suspended water droplets or tiny ice crystals.

  • Dike

    A tabular-shaped intrusive igneous feature that cuts through the surrounding rock.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Hadean eon

    A term found on some versions of the geologic time scale. It refers to the earliest interval (eon) of Earth history, and ended 4 billion years ago.

  • Index fossil

    A fossil that is associated with a particular span of geologic time.

  • Mesozoic era

    A span on the geologic time scale between the Paleozoic and Cenozoic eras from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.

  • Moment magnitude

    A more precise measure of earthquake magnitude than the Richter scale that is derived from the amount of displacement that occurs along a fault zone.

  • Natural leeves

    The elevated landforms that parallel some streams and act to confine their waters, except during floodstage.

  • Nonmetallic mineral resource

    Mineral resource that is not a fuel or processed for the metals it contains.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Polar front

    The stormy frontal zone separating air masses of polar origin from air masses of tropical origin.

  • Proterozoic eon

    The eon following the Archean and preceding the Phanerozoic. It extends between about 2,500 million (2.5 billion) and 540 million years ago.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Silicate

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

  • Spring

    A flow of groundwater that emerges naturally at the ground surface.

  • Streak

    The color of a mineral in powdered form.
