Introduction to Physical Geography
This survey course provides a broad introduction to physical geography. Students can expect to understand earth-sun relations and the connection to seasons, components of weather such as temperature and precipitation, and spatial patterns of global climate. General climate zones have a strong impact on landscape and soil development, and on distribution of plants and animals as major biomes.
