Geography for Nongeographers by Frank R. Spellman

Government Institutes | 2010 | ISBN: 1605906867, 1605906875 | 352 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Geography is a multidisciplinary field which looks at both physical and social aspects of the world. The broad scope of the field makes it a daunting area for those who do not have a specific background in it. Geography for Non-Geographers thus introduces readers to the most important aspects of geography and how they affect us. It covers all areas of geography, from physical geography to climate and weather to human and cultural geography. Geography for Non-Geographers is presented in an accessible and straightforward manner, explaining scientific concepts in the most basic way possible.

This debut edition of Visualizing Physical Geography encompasses the science of physical geography from local to global scales, using a uniquely visual approach to take students on a journey from the top layers of the Earth’s atmosphere to the rocks underlying the ocean basins to the forests of the farthest continents. As students explore the critical topics of physical geography, their study of the climate, surface features, and habitats around the world uses basic concepts of ecology, geology, chemistry, environmental science, biology, and physics and many other disciplines. Visualizing Physical Geography reinforces these interacting components and, with its premier art program (in partnership with National Geographic), vividly illustrates the interconnectedness of physical processes that weave together to create our planet’s dynamic surface and atmosphere. ...

Eratosthenes' "Geography"
Princeton University Press 2010 | 320 | ISBN: 069114267X | PDF | 3 Mb
This is the first modern edition and first English translation of one of the earliest and most important works in the history of geography, the third-century Geographika of Eratosthenes. In this work, which for the first time described the geography of the entire inhabited world as it was then known, Eratosthenes of Kyrene (ca. 285-205 BC) invented the discipline of geography as we understand it. A polymath who served as librarian at Alexandria and tutor to the future King Ptolemy IV, Eratosthenes created the terminology of geography, probably including the word geographia itself. Building on his previous work, in which he determined the size and shape of the earth, Eratosthenes in the Geographika created a grid of parallels and meridians that linked together every place in the world: for the first time one could figure out the relationship and distance between remote localities, such as northwest Africa and the Caspian Sea. The Geographika also identified some four hundred places, more than ever before, from Thoule (probably Iceland) to Taprobane (Sri Lanka), and from well down the coast of Africa to Central Asia....

How often do you really want to read a book about geography for pleasure? The almost chatty style of this encyclopedia may change your attitude! Grades 9 and up - including well into college grades and of course public libraries - will appreciate this fine 3-volume reference which offers a comprehensive guide to the history and practice of geography. Over seven hundred entries describe pioneers in geography and mapmaking, regions, tools, and terminology of cartography, including hundreds of maps and photos. No singular effort, this: some 100 scholars and experts in geography contribute entries to a reference which provides definitions, data, and lengthy entries rather than short pieces. An excellent reference which promises both wide accessibility and lasting, relevant information in a highly readable set.

Focusing on the relationship between England and Scotland and the interaction between history and geography, Penny Fielding explores how Scottish literature in the Romantic period was shaped by the understanding of place and space. The book examines geography as a form of regional, national and global definition, addressing national surveys, local stories, place-names and travel writing, and argues that the case of Scotland complicates the identification of Romanticism with the local. Fielding considers Scotland as 'North Britain' in a period when the North of Europe was becoming a strong cultural and political identity, and explores ways in which Scotland was both formative and disruptive of British national consciousness. Containing studies of Robert Burns, Walter Scott and James Hogg, as well as the lesser-known figures of Anne Grant and Margaret Chalmers, this study discusses an exceptionally broad range of historical, geographical, scientific, linguistic, antiquarian and political writing from throughout North Britain. ...

1 Introduction Geography is an important member of the environmental sciences . In fact it is geography which presents the integrated and wholistic picture of the environment. Among the geographical traditions, ecological tradition has been a significant approach of study which interrelates human and environmental variables and also interprets their links (Haggett et a/., 1977, 5). The recent association of geography and environment under Biogeography will provide a strong platform and strategy for protecting, conserving and transforming the environment and its resources to promote integrated welfare of a society. Biogeography is primarily concerned with interpreting the living endowment at a point on the earth
