Geography

Geography is the study of the physical aspects of the planet. Topics studied include population pressures, food supply, and resource availability. Physical Geography is a natural science about weather, climate, and earth processes creating different landforms, while World Geography is a social science of how mankind utilizes earth resources to create different cultures and standards of living.
