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.

Assessment and permitted materials

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Successful participants will recognize and understand the inherent interrelationships in Environmental Systems and will be able to transfer this knowledge to other environmental questions. Students are also introduced to the professional terminology in Geomorphology and can correctly reproduce it.
