Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Andean-type plate margin

    Plate boundaries that generate continental volcanic arcs.

  • Berm

    The dry, gently sloping zone on the backshore of a beach at the foot of the coastal cliffs or dunes.

  • Bowen’s reaction series

    A concept proposed by N. L. Bowen that illustrates the relationships between magma and the minerals crystallizing from it during the formation of igneous rocks.

  • Coma

    The fuzzy, gaseous component of a comet’s head.

  • Cutoff

    A short channel segment created when a river erodes through the narrow neck of land between meanders.

  • Density

    Mass per unit volume of a substance, usually expressed as grams per cubic centimeter

  • Desert pavement

    A layer of coarse pebbles and gravel created when wind removed the finer material.

  • Euphotic zone

    The portion of the photic zone near the surface where light is bright enough for photosynthesis to occur.

  • Ice cap climate

    A climate that has no monthly means above freezing and supports no vegetative cover except in a few scattered high mountain areas. This climate, with its perpetual ice and snow, is confined largely to the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica.

  • Ice shelf

    Forming where glacial ice flows into bays, it is a large, relatively flat mass of floating ice that extends seaward from the coast but remains attached to the land along one or more sides.

  • Low cloud

    A cloud that forms below a height of 2,000 meters.

  • Pahoehoe flow

    A lava flow with a smooth-toropey surface.

  • Period

    A basic unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of an era. Periods may be divided into smaller units called epochs.

  • Solifluction

    Slow, downslope flow of water-saturated materials common to permafrost areas.

  • Steppe

    One of the two types of dry climate. A marginal and more humid variant of the desert that separates it from bordering humid climates.

  • Terrae

    The extensively cratered highland areas of the Moon.

  • Tidal current

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

  • Transverse dunes

    A series of long ridges oriented at right angles to the prevailing wind; these dunes form where vegetation is sparse and sand is very plentiful.

  • Turbulent flow

    The movement of water in an erratic fashion, often characterized by swirling, whirlpool-like eddies. Most streamflow is of this type.

  • Unconformity

    A surface that represents a break in the rock record, caused by erosion or nondeposition.
