GEOG 104 The Physical Environment 

  To familiarize students with Earth systems (including the interrelationships among them) that operate at the surface of the Earth, with particular emphasis on those Earth-system processes that determine the distribution of physical phenomena at global and regional scales. Earth systems to be addressed include the Atmosphere, the Hydrosphere, the Lithosphere, and the Biosphere. Emphasis will be placed on the processes that operate within and between these systems, processes that result in observable patterns of weather and climate, plant communities, soil types, natural hazards, geomorphic processes, and landforms. The overall goal of the course is provide a basic appreciation of the physical features that characterize this unique planet and an understanding of their geographic distribution across the globe.
