Key Science Terms and definitions covered in this textbook
  • Atomic number

    The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom.

  • Core

    Located beneath the mantle, it is the innermost layer of Earth. The core is divided into an outer core and an inner core.

  • Exfoliation dome

    Large, dome-shaped structure, usually composed of granite, formed by sheeting.

  • Fumarole

    A vent in a volcanic area from which fumes or gases escape.

  • Glacial erratic

    An ice-transported boulder that was not derived from bedrock near its present site.

  • Granules

    The fine structure visible on the solar surface caused by convective cells below.

  • Isostasy

    The concept that Earth’s crust is floating in gravitational balance upon the material of the mantle.

  • Jet stream

    Swift (120–240 kilometers per hour), high-altitude winds.

  • Law of conservation of angular momentum

    The product of the velocity of an object around a center of rotation (axis), and the distance squared of the object from the axis is constant.

  • Meander

    A looplike bend in the course of a stream.

  • Pegmatite

    A very coarse-grained igneous rock (typically granite) commonly found as a dike associated with a large mass of plutonic rock that has smaller crystals. Crystallization in a waterrich environment is believed to be responsible for the very large crystals.

  • Population I

    Stars rich in atoms heavier than helium. Nearly always relatively young stars found in the disk of the galaxy.

  • Pyroclastic

    An igneous rock texture resulting from the consolidation of individual rock fragments that are ejected during a violent eruption.

  • Stream valley

    The channel, valley floor, and sloping valley walls of a stream.

  • Subpolar low

    Low pressure located at about the latitudes of the Arctic and Antarctic circles. In the Northern Hemisphere the low takes the form of individual oceanic cells; in the Southern Hemisphere there is a deep and continuous trough of low pressure.

  • Syncline

    A linear downfold in sedimentary strata; the opposite of anticline.

  • Transpiration

    The release of water vapor to the atmosphere by plants.

  • Transported soil

    Soils that form on unconsolidated deposits.

  • Turbidity current

    A downslope movement of dense, sediment-laden water created when sand and mud on the continental shelf and slope are dislodged and thrown into suspension.

  • Ultramafic composition

    Igneous rocks composed mainly of iron and magnesium-rich minerals.
