    Geography Part 1 Geography is always been part of our lives. From researching weather to decipher many of the mysteries of life, geography is always a beautiful subject to explore. This new series will focus on the diversity of humanity and the Earth in general. It will deal with populations, demographics, animal species, biology, transportation, and human existence too. 󰁁󰁮 󰁉󰁮󰁴󰁲󰁯󰁤󰁵󰁣󰁴󰁩󰁯󰁮 󰁴󰁯 󰁇󰁥󰁯󰁧󰁲󰁡󰁰󰁨󰁹    The Table of Contents 1. Preface 2.

The greatness of geography is that it is a field of science that studies the Earth’s topographical features, people, and its total components in general. It also involves the study of the Moon and other planets. Geography is complex too. There can be no study of geography without understanding the diversity found in the human race. Cultures and various traditions are diverse in scope. You have to love people to learn geography fully as geography deals with sociology plus the comprehension of world cultures. When you learn about the flow of rivers or streams that relates to geography. When you study geopolitics and various populations, these items involve geography. Therefore, geography is never monolithic. It is very widespread in scope. Physical geography is about the knowledge of plants, biosphere, flora, and fauna of the Earth. The concepts of meteorology, the environment, landscapes, and oceanography all encompass physical geography as well. Human geography is geared to research the lives of human beings. Culture, history, geopolitics, population geography, sociology, religion, tourism, transportation, urban geography, and other concepts all are a part of human geography. In real life, every class that I have took in college involving geography, I have enjoyed greatly. So, this subject is a very fun one to research. Maps, geographers, and other facets of life enrich us in many ways. That is why geography is important, because the more that we understand about the Earth, the better that we can improve it. With climate change and various issues in the world, we certainly need more collaboration in solving global or international problems. Geography is very important. From studying the seven continents of planet Earth to witnessing the applications of geography in everyday life, I truly love geography.   Physical Geography One of the most important aspects of geography is to understand about the world around us. Physical geography encompasses many studies of weather, climate, and other parts of the Earth. When you see an image of the Earth with the green, blue, and other colors, it outlines plant life, mountains, forests, rivers, and oceans. All of these entities are interconnected with each other. Physical geography is a natural science that studies the processes and patterns in the natural environment. That is why it must involve research into the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere. Physical geography is divided into many sub divisions too. Geomorphology studies the Earth’s surface. Hydrology is concerned with water on land surfaces including lakes, rivers, aquifers, and glaciers. The study of glaciers and ice sheets is called Glaciology. Biogeography is the study of geographic patterns in species distributions and the processes that result in the patterns. When weather TV anchors and scientists talk about meteorology in public, they individuals are dealing with the scientific study relating to physical geography too. The study of soils in the natural environment is called pedology. When people investigate fossils, plate tectonics, ancient supercontinents, and geologic time, all of these fields are related to paleogeography. Coastal geography deals with the research into the ocean and the interface of the ocean and the land as well. Learning about the Earth’s oceans and seas relates to oceanography. When researchers study the Quaternary period (or the last 2.6 million years), it is called the Quaternary science. Many dedicated human beings use landscapes, geomatics (or gathering information relating to geography), and environmental geography in order for folks to have a better picture on how planet Earth operates. In geomatics, researchers use maps, globes, satellite images, photographs, diagrams, etc. in finding out facts. Some people use GIS or Geographic Information Systems, databases, and primary sources to find the nature of countries, cities, and environments. Areas are defined by scales too. Satellites and other devices are utilized to find the area of a place. Some maps are distorted in their images. The
