Physical geography, the study of the properties and processes which occur at Earth's surface and their interactions over large areas, is basic to all environmental sciences. This class will introduce students to the major features of our environment, such as weather, land forms, and vegetation, and the physical processes which control them. This interdisciplinary area of study will integrate principles from areas such as meteorology, ecology, oceanography, and geology, with the goal of understanding how they interact to shape our natural environment. The class will consist of lectures, labs, and fieldwork. Prerequisite: Eligibility for Q courses.
