    Fall 2003 Professor: Paul Laris Office: LA4-101 E-mail: Office Hours: T- Th Meeting Times: T- Th MW or by appointment Room: Phone: 985-1862 Course Description This course is an introductory physical geography course. It explores the different aspects of the physical environment, including the atmosphere and hydrosphere (weather and climate, oceans), biosphere (plants and animals), and lithosphere (landforms, earth processes), and emphasizes the relationships between these spheres. The goal of the course is to gain a deeper understanding of how these systems work and how they are intimately connected. There is an emphasis on the role that humans play in modifying these processes and how our impact may be modifying the environment at the local and global scale. By the end of the semester you will be able to: i ) understand the way humans (you) modify the environment; ii) classify climates into types based on a few variables; iii) explain the causes of different vegetation patterns; iv) identify a variety of physical and biological features on the landscape; v) explain the greenhouse effect, its relation to global warming and its causes; and vi), gain appreciation and knowledge of Californian environments. Expectations As a general rule you should expect to spend 2 to 3 hours preparing for each hour of class time, a total of about

The emphasis of the course is the interactions between the atmosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere of the Earth environment systems. We will also examine various global environmental issues from the perspective of physical geography. Topics include: The Earth environment from a viewpoint of systems; How to read and interpret various types of maps; Basic knowledge of the dynamics of the atmosphere; Major weather phenomena and how they impact human society; Distribution of different climate systems; The forces that shaped the surface of the earth;

    a) The spatial analysis of all the physical elements and processes that make up the environment. b) Physical Geography studies the spatial patterns of weather and climate, soils, vegetation, animals, water, and landforms. Physical Geography also examines the interrelationships of these phenomena to human activities. How Does Physical Geography Fit Into The Bigger Picture? Sub-Disciplines of Physical Geography Geomorphology - landforms on the Earth's surface. Pedology - soils. Biogeography - spatial relationships of plants and animals. Hydrology - water in all its forms. Meteorology - the circulation of the atmosphere over short time spans.

    The discipline of Geography at the University of Richmond is a young, dynamic program, emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach to the study of human and environmental problems in the Arts and Sciences. In broad terms, geographers traditionally work in one or more of the following areas of teaching and research: 1) areal or regional analysis; 2) analyses of the locations, connections, spaces, and/or places associated with human activities; 3) earth and natural sciences (e.g., biogeography, meteorology, climatology, natural hazards, geomorphology); 4) analyses of human-environment relationships and interconnections (i.e., environment and society); and 5) the development of the tools, techniques, and methodologies to analyze and communicate spatial information related to human, natural, and physical phenomena (i.e., the fields of cartography, geographic information science, and remote sensing). Richmond presently offers courses in each of these areas and geography faculty members regularly teach a total of eight courses covering a wide range of topics, techniques, and sub-fields within the discipline.

    School: Biological and Earth Sciences Award: BSc (Hons), BSc, DipHE, CertHE Intake: Mode: 3 years full time, 4 years with foundation year Start Date: UCAS: F840 BSc/PGeog Email: Physical geographers study the nature of the Earth’s surface and attempt to explain how the landforms and environment developed. You will gain an understanding of how glaciers have created much of the spectacular scenery of upland Britain, how fluvial, coastal and slope systems continue to shape and modify the landscape and how soil and weathering processes form surface deposits. You will also study the complex, and often conflicting, relationships between the natural environment and human actions. A major attraction of the degree programme at Liverpool John Moores University is that you concentrate upon Physical Geography from the start (as compared with the Geography degree programme, which has approximately equal Physical and Human Geography). Not many other universities offer this flexibility. Another unique feature of the programme is its ‘hands on’ approach. We believe that the best and most enjoyable way for students to learn is through their own experiences. All modules, therefore, have a large component of fieldwork, practical classes, laboratory experiments and computer sessions. Liverpool is uniquely placed in the country for the study of Physical Geography. There is easy access to the stunning upland landscapes of the Lake District, Peak District and Snowdonia, as well as a host of coastal sites. You will visit all of these areas during the course of your studies, an experience highly valued by our graduates.

It is designed to provide deep understanding of environmental processes and phenomena in our every day life. The greatest value of Geography is its integrative nature and its search for patterns and generalizations. To that end, the main goal of this course is to increase your awareness of our physical environment, its landscapes, processes and controls, as well as the interrelationships of natural phenomena. Topics include: weather and climate, vegetation and soils, landforms and water resources, geographic pattern and processes of human-environmental interactions and geographic techniques. Course objectives: Basic understanding of physical processes and phenomena (such as wind circulation and pressure patterns, plate tectonics, rock weathering, energy flows in ecosystems, etc).

Next, the students will pair up to create three landforms on cardboard squares using goop (salt dough). Finally the students will present their landforms to the class and the teacher will read aloud a short story involving landforms.

An option in the major permits students to pre p are for employment in high-tech sub fields of geography that involve computer mapping, remote sensing, and the use of Geographic Information Systems. Geography majors gain knowledge about physical geography weather, climate, landforms, soils, and vegetation. Majors also learn about human geography human roles in shaping urban, economic and other cultural patterns in the landscape. Students also develop specialized skills in cartography, aerial photographic interpretation, and other geographic techniques.
