Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Anticline

    A fold in sedimentary strata resembling an arch.

  • Beach drift

    The transport of sediment in a zigzag pattern along a beach caused by the uprush of water from obliquely breaking waves.

  • Closed system

    A system that is self-contained with regards to matter—that is, no matter enters or leaves.

  • Continental rift

    A linear zone along which continental lithosphere stretches and pulls apart. Its creation may mark the beginning of a new ocean basin.

  • Craton

    That part of the continental crust that has attained stability; that is, it has not been affected by significant tectonic activity during the Phanerozoic eon. It consists of the shield and stable platform.

  • Disseminated deposit

    Any economic mineral deposit in which the desired mineral occurs as scattered particles in the rock but in sufficient quantity to make the deposit an ore.

  • Ephemeral stream

    A stream that is usually dry because it carries water only in response to specific episodes of rainfall. Most desert streams are of this type.

  • Flood basalts

    Flows of basaltic lava that issue from numerous cracks or fissures and commonly cover extensive areas to thicknesses of hundreds of meters.

  • Food chain

    A succession of organisms in an ecological community through which food energy is transferred from producers through herbivores and on to one or more carnivores.

  • Island arc

    See Volcanic island arc.

  • Localized convective lifting

    Unequal surface heating that causes localized pockets of air (thermals) to rise because of their buoyancy.

  • Magnitude (stellar)

    A number given to a celestial object to express its relative brightness.

  • Massive

    An igneous pluton that is not tabular in shape.

  • Medial moraine

    A ridge of till formed when lateral moraines from two coalescing alpine glaciers join.

  • Retrograde motion

    The apparent westward motion of the planets with respect to the stars.

  • Rift valley

    A long, narrow trough bounded by normal faults. It represents a region where divergence is taking place.

  • Rock

    A consolidated mixture of minerals.

  • Surface soil

    The uppermost layer in a soil profile: the A horizon.

  • Ultraviolet

    Radiation with a wavelength from 0.2 to 0.4 micrometer.

  • Valley train

    A relatively narrow body of stratified drift deposited on a valley floor by meltwater streams that issue from a valley glacier.
