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

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

  • Arid climate

    See Dry climate.

  • Backshore

    The inner portion of the shore, lying landward of the high-tide shoreline. It is usually dry, being affected by waves only during storms.

  • Cosmological red shift

    Changes in the spectra of galaxies that indicate they are moving away from the Milky Way as the result of the expansion of space.

  • Creep

    The slow downhill movement of soil and regolith.

  • Deep-sea fan

    A cone-shaped deposit at the base of the continental slope. The sediment is transported to the fan by turbidity currents that follow submarine canyons.

  • Elliptical galaxy

    A galaxy that is round or elliptical in outline. It contains little gas and dust, no disk or spiral arms, and few hot, bright stars.

  • Era

    A major division on the geologic calendar; eras are divided into shorter units called periods.

  • Geothermal gradient

    The gradual increase in temperature with depth in the crust. The average is 30° C per kilometer in the upper crust.

  • Granitic composition

    A compositional group of igneous rocks that indicates a rock is composed almost entirely of light-colored silicates.

  • Hot spot track

    Chain of volcanic structures produced as a lithospheric plate moves over a mantle plume.

  • Incised meander

    Meandering channel that flows in a steep, narrow valley. They form either when an area is uplifted or when base level drops.

  • Neritic zone

    The marine-life zone that extends from the low tideline out to the shelf break.

  • Radiocarbon (carbon-14)

    The radioactive isotope of carbon, which is produced continuously in the atmosphere and is used in dating events from the very recent geologic past (the last few tens of thousands of years).

  • Spring

    A flow of groundwater that emerges naturally at the ground surface.

  • Storm surge

    The abnormal rise of the sea along a shore as a result of strong winds.

  • Subduction

    The process of thrusting oceanic lithosphere into the mantle along a convergent boundary.

  • Thermal gradient

    The increase in temperature with depth. It averages 1° C per 30 meters (1–2° F per 100 feet) in the crust.

  • Trophic level

    A nourishment level in a food chain. Plant and algae producers constitute the lowest level, followed by herbivores and a series of carnivores at progressively higher levels.

  • Viscosity

    A measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow.
