Welcome to Geography 1030: Introduction to Physical Geography
Welcome to Geography 1030: Introduction to Physical Geography. Throughout the next semester we will be examining the major earth systems that affect our planet. With a particular emphasis on the spatial distribution over the Earth’s surface, this course is designed to acquaint students with the composition and processes of the biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. Working knowledge of the physical science, like climatology, meteorology, environmental science, are necessary as well. Because the focus of the course is on the physical forces of the planet, the overarching goal of this course is to give students the knowledge needed to understand the physical systems that have shaped our planet and how they will continue to affect life on Earth.
The course is divided into two parts, this lecture-based section focused on constructing students’ functional knowledge of the course concepts related to physical geography, and a lab section with practical applications of the same content. The two sections are meant to complement one another to further expand students’ knowledge of the course concepts.
