Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Astronomical unit (AU)

    Average distance from Earth to the Sun; or

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Extrusive

    Igneous activity that occurs outside the crust.

  • Foreshocks

    Small earthquakes that often precede a major earthquake.

  • Ionic bond

    A chemical bond between two oppositely charged ions formed by the transfer of valence electrons from one atom to the other.

  • Jovian planet

    The Jupiter-like planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets have relatively low densities.

  • Longitudinal (seif dunes)

    Long ridges of sand oriented parallel to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where sand supplies are limited.

  • Manganese nodules

    Rounded lumps of hydrogenous sediment scattered on the ocean floor, consisting mainly of manganese and iron and usually containing small amounts of copper, nickel, and cobalt.

  • Nebula

    A cloud of interstellar gas and/or dust.

  • Partial melting

    The process by which most igneous rocks melt. Since individual minerals have different melting points, most igneous rocks melt over a temperature range of a few hundred degrees. If the liquid is squeezed out after some melting has occurred, a melt with a higher silica content results.

  • Shelf break

    The point where a rapid steepening of the gradient occurs, marking the outer edge of the continental shelf and the beginning of the continental slope.

  • Soil taxonomy

    A soil classification system consisting of six hierarchical categories based on observable soil characteristics. The system recognizes 12 soil orders.

  • Terrestrial planets

    Any of the Earth-like planets, including Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth.

  • Tidal current

    The alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide.

  • Trade winds

    Two belts of winds that blow almost constantly from easterly directions and are located on the equatorward sides of the subtropical highs.

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Ultimate base level

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

  • Uniformitarianism

    The concept that the processes that have shaped Earth in the geologic past are essentially the same as those operating today
