GEO 121 Landform Geography

An introduction to the field of geography, with particular emphasis on the driving physical forces and processes that shape the earth's surface. The impact on human activities and patterns will be examined. A spatial approach will be used to study the nature and character of physical space including measurements, relations, locations, and the distribution of phenomena. The course will meet twice a week in a traditional classroom setting and once a week in a laboratory setting, which will include occasional field trips to explore the local area in an effort to observe how landforms, vegetation and microclimate vary over short distances.
