Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Abrasion

    The grinding and scraping of a rock surface by the friction and impact of rock particles carried by water, wind, or ice.

  • Cactolith

    A quasi-horizontal chonolith composed of anastomosing ductoliths, whose distal ends curl like a harpolith, thin like a sphenolith, or bulge discordantly like an akmolith or ethmolith.

  • Crystallization

    The formation and growth of a crystalline solid from a liquid or gas.

  • Fault creep

    Displacement along a fault that is so slow and gradual that little seismic activity occurs.

  • Focus (earthquake)

    The zone within Earth where rock displacement produces an earthquake.

  • Halocline

    A layer of water in which there is a high rate of change in salinity in the vertical dimension.

  • Hardness

    The resistance a mineral offers to scratching.

  • Middle-latitude cyclone

    Large center of low pressure with an associated cold front and often a warm front. Frequently accompanied by abundant precipitation.

  • Mixed tidal pattern

    A tidal pattern exhibiting two high tides and two low tides per tidal day with a large inequality in high water heights, low water heights, or both. Coastal locations that experience such a tidal pattern may also show alternating periods of diurnal and semidiurnal tidal patterns. Also called mixed semidiurnal.

  • Overrunning

    Warm air gliding up a retreating cold air mass.

  • Photosynthesis

    The process by which plants and algae produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll, using light energy and releasing oxygen.

  • Sill

    A tabular igneous body that was intruded parallel to the layering of preexisting rock.

  • Spectroscope

    An instrument for directly viewing the spectrum of a light source.

  • Stalagmite

    The columnlike form that grows upward from the floor of a cavern.

  • Surface soil

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

  • Surface waves

    Seismic waves that travel along the outer layer of Earth.

  • Travertine

    A form of limestone that is deposited by hot springs or as a cave deposit.

  • Tropopause

    The boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere.

  • Tsunami

    The Japanese word for a seismic sea wave.

  • Variable stars

    Red giants that overshoot equilibrium, then alternately expand and contract.
