Description

 

Geography is the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these physical features. The study of Geography includes the distribution of populations, resources, political and economic activities. Geography is essentially the study of the earth’s landscapes, people, places and environments. It is, quite simply, about the world in which we live. Geography is divided into two main areas: Human Geography and Physical Geography. In Physical Geography, we examine natural processes and features, including the atmosphere, landforms and ecosystems. In Human Geography, we investigate the activities and impact that human beings have on Earth..
