GEO-150 Physical Geography

This course will examine major natural systems within our physical environment: climate, vegetation, soils, hydrology, and landforms. Emphasis will be given to analysis of the processes and environmental interactions that shape these systems. Students will develop skills in the collection of both historical and primary data; the utilization of geographic models to explain processes; the complexity and application of maps and mapmaking techniques; examining GIS output as an analytical tool for solving location problems in different scientific fields.
