Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Physical geography is an area of study that connects people to their physical world. Physical geography examines the world as a system of interacting parts and explores the processes and feedbacks between the lithosphere (rocks), hydrosphere (water), atmosphere (air), and biosphere (living things). Since people and human populations are a part of the global system, we also consider how human activities are changing these systems, both globally and locally.
