Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
• Asteroid belt

The region in which most asteroids orbit the Sun between Mars and Jupiter.

• Barrier island

A low, elongate ridge of sand that parallels the coast.

• Batholith

A large mass of igneous rock that formed when magma was emplaced at depth, crystallized, and subsequently exposed by erosion.

• Black hole

A massive star that has collapsed to such a small volume that its gravity prevents the escape of all radiation.

• Calorie

The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1° C.

• 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.

• Divergence

The condition that exists when the distribution of winds within a given area results in a net horizontal outflow of air from the region. In divergence at lower levels the resulting deficit is compensated for by a downward movement of air from aloft; hence, areas of divergent winds are unfavorable to cloud formation and precipitation.

• Elastic rebound

The sudden release of stored strain in rocks that results in movement along a fault.

• External process

Process such as weathering, mass wasting, or erosion that is powered by the Sun and transforms solid rock into sediment.

• Granules

The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.

• Horizon

A layer in a soil profile.

• Hydrothermal solution

The hot, watery solution that escapes from a mass of magma during the later stages of crystallization. Such solutions may alter the surrounding country rock and are frequently the source of significant ore deposits.

• Intrusive

Igneous rock that formed below Earth’s surface.

• Kame

A steep-sided hill composed of sand and gravel originating when sediment is collected in openings in stagnant glacial ice.

• Pulsar

A variable radio source of small size that emits radio pulses in very regular periods.

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

• Semidiurnal tidal pattern

A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with small inequalities between successive highs and successive lows; a semi-daily tide.

• Soil profile

A vertical section through a soil showing its succession of horizons and the underlying parent material.

• Striations (glacial)

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

• Unstable air

Air that does not resist vertical displacement. If it is lifted, its temperature will not cool as rapidly as the surrounding environment, so it will continue to rise on its own.
