Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Compound

    A substance formed by the chemical combination of two or more elements in definite proportions and usually having properties different from those of its constituent elements.

  • Elastic deformation

    Rock deformation in which the rock will return to nearly its original size and shape when the stress is removed.

  • Environmental lapse rate

    The rate of temperature decrease with increasing height in the troposphere.

  • Fossil magnetism

    See Paleomagnetism.

  • Gradient

    The slope of a stream; generally measured in feet per mile.

  • Groundwater

    Water in the zone of saturation.

  • Humid continental climate

    A relatively severe climate characteristic of broad continents in the middle latitudes between approximately 40 and 50 degrees north latitude. This climate is not found in the Southern Hemisphere, where the middle latitudes are dominated by the oceans.

  • Marine terrace

    A wave-cut platform that has been exposed above sea level.

  • Passive continental margin

    Margins that consist of a continental shelf, continental slope, and continental rise. They are not associated with plate boundaries and therefore experience little volcanism and few earthquakes.

  • Phanerozoic eon

    That part of geologic time represented by rocks containing abundant fossil evidence. The eon extending from the end of the Proterozoic eon (about 540 million years ago) to the present.

  • Polar wandering

    As the result of paleomagnetic studies in the 1950s, researchers proposed that either the magnetic poles migrated greatly through time or the continents had gradually shifted their positions.

  • Ptolemaic system

    An Earth-centered system of the universe.

  • Resolving power

    The ability of a telescope to separate objects that would otherwise appear as one.

  • Reverse polarity

    A magnetic field opposite to that which exists at present.

  • Secondary enrichment

    The concentration of minor amounts of metals that are scattered through unweathered rock into economically valuable concentrations by weathering processes.

  • Sinkhole

    A depression produced in a region where soluble rock has been removed by groundwater.

  • System

    Any size group of interacting parts that form a complex whole.

  • Uniformitarianism

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

  • Water table

    The upper level of the saturated zone of groundwater.

  • Wavelength

    The horizontal distance separating successive crests or troughs.
