Geography

GEOGRAPHY is the science dealing with the areal differentiation of the earth's surface, as shown in the character, arrangement, and interrelations over the world of such diverse elements as climate, soil, vegetation, population, land use, culture, industries, states, and of the unit areas formed by the complex of these individual elements.

Geography GEOGRAPHY is the science dealing with the areal differentiation of the earth's surface, as shown in the character, arrangement, and interrelations over the world of such diverse elements as climate, soil, vegetation, population, land use, culture, industries, states, and of the unit areas formed by the complex of these individual elements. (noun). Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Geography is the study of the distribution of phenomena over the surface of the earth. The study of geography has three main disciplinary focuses: people, place and identity; earth, and environment; and Geographic Information Science (GIS). Although geography encompasses many fields, the basic goal of geography is to identify the characteristics of a place to determine how it functions (population, culture, resources, landforms, climate, etc...), and how it relates to, or compares with, other places. This may sound like a simple task, but be forewarned the world is full of complex patterns, processes, and relationships. Thus geographers are among the leaders in using GIS, Remote Sensing, qualitative and quantitative methods in our efforts to identify and explain "spatial patterns" around the world. Given the changing nature of our world, geography provides an assortment of skills and tools to help you understand your place in our complex, globalized, multicultural society and geography provides a knowledge base which will help you to take advantage of all our world has to offer. So, how do you know you want to be geographer? Are you curious about places? If so, geography channels this interest into a... [-]

Department of Geology As the world faces declining natural resources (including potable water and food), climate change, and an increasing population, a geology major provides particularly salient training to address these issues. Additionally, geology majors leave Cornell able to pursue a wide variety of careers within and outside of the sciences. Field study and research Field experiences are critical to learning geology. Cornell's One Course At A Time allows us to include field trips in almost every course and to dedicate an entire block in specialized field study courses. We also engage our students in a variety ofresearch projects, often connected to the wide-ranging interests of our faculty. History Cornell's geology department was the first in Iowa, and we are the only liberal arts college in Iowa to offer a four-year degree in geology. Curriculum Many students choose to major in geology because they are interested in the environment and wish to take advantage of the numerous opportunities to study geology beyond the traditional classroom. Few students entering Cornell have had any exposure to geology; many of our majors “discover” geology after their first or second (and, occasionally third) year at Cornell. Our program is sufficiently flexible to allow enthusiastic “latecomers” to complete the requirements for the geology major or minor. Field Courses We believe strongly in a hand-on approach to learning science, and Cornell's One Course At A Time schedule allows us to include field opportunities in nearly every course, whether for a day or an entire block.

Integrating the natural and social sciences and geospatial technologies, it allows to deepen their knowledge in one of the following concentrations: spatial planning and sustainable development; environment, geomorphology and natural hazards; marine environment; ecological geography; What is geography? Geography integrates the natural sciences and the humanities. It aims to understand how natural environments influence human activities, but also how societies adapt, use and modify these settings. Environmental issues are therefore at the heart of the field of study of geography. This discipline is also interested in all aspects of integrated management of territories and their resources. For this, it uses methods and efficient tools for the collection, processing and analysis of geographic information (GIS, remote sensing, photo interpretation, field campaigns, etc.). At UQAR, human geography and physical geography come together to tackle issues, for example, geohazards, regional planning and sustainable development. concentrations planning and sustainable development management concentration The BA in geography, land concentration in the planning and sustainable development concerns both land use, economic development, enhancement and protection of natural resources.

Bachelors in Geographic Sciences. Environmental science is fundamental to environmental protection and restoration. Coursework in the environmental science major at Wells guides students in examination and analysis of the earth and the human-environment interaction, and develops the technical and scientific skills necessary to build a career related to the environment. Underpinning the major is the belief that environmental science and technology provide important tools that help us become better stewards of the earth, its ecosystems, and its natural resources. Not only do students receive thorough, specialized instruction and personalized assistance, they often take their studies outside of the classroom. Rather than isolating experiences within a building, students examine animals, trees, lakes, rivers and other aspects of their physical location. Environmental classrooms are intimately linked to the spectacular natural setting that surrounds the Wells campus. What Students Study Students in the environmental science program take courses like these: - Conservation of Biodiversity - Sustainable Agriculture - Tutorial in Geographical Information Systems - Environmental Impact Assessment - Topics courses such as “Pollution Science” and “The Climate System” In addition to taking courses specific to the major, students can build an all-around understanding of environmental issues through relevant courses from a variety of disciplines across the liberal arts. Wells has a partnership with the Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom. On a regular basis, the U.S.S. Haendel “Floating Classroom” docks at the Wells boathouse so that students in environmental science and other classes can spend a few hours on the water, running water quality tests,... [-]
