Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Aa flow

    A type of lava flow that has a jagged, blocky surface.

  • Crystal settling

    During the crystallization of magma, the earlier-formed minerals are denser than the liquid portion and settle to the bottom of the magma chamber.

  • Deflation

    The lifting and removal of loose material by wind.

  • Detrital sedimentary rock

    Rock formed from the accumulation of material that originated and was transported in the form of solid particles derived from both mechanical and chemical weathering.

  • Drift

    See Glacial drift.

  • Epoch

    A unit of the geologic calendar that is a subdivision of a period.

  • Esker

    Sinuous ridge composed largely of sand and gravel deposited by a stream flowing in a tunnel beneath a glacier near its terminus.

  • Fault scarp

    A cliff created by movement along a fault. It represents the exposed surface of the fault prior to modification by weathering and erosion.

  • Fissure

    A crack in rock along which there is a distinct separation.

  • High

    A center of high pressure characterized by anticyclonic winds.

  • 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.

  • Jetties

    A pair of structures extending into the ocean at the entrance to a harbor or river that are built for the purpose of protecting against storm waves and sediment deposition.

  • Lunar breccia

    A lunar rock formed when angular fragments and dust are welded together by the heat generated by the impact of a meteoroid.

  • Refraction

    The process by which the portion of a wave in shallow water slows, causing the wave to bend and tend to align itself with the underwater contours.

  • Sea arch

    An arch formed by wave erosion when caves on opposite sides of a headland unite.

  • Seawall

    A barrier constructed to prevent waves from reaching the area behind the wall. Its purpose is to defend property from the force of breaking waves.

  • Seismogram

    The record made by a seismograph.

  • Strata

    Parallel layers of sedimentary rock.

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Vent

    The surface opening of a conduit or pipe.
