Earth Processes

A survey of the physical forces which shape our earth

The study of geomorphology provides a deeper understanding of landscape and its evolution and merges geography and geology. Furthermore it permits an integrated study of the biosphere, lithosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere while assisting the anticipation of natural hazards and human impacts. Ultimately an understanding of earth processes establishes the groundwork to ask how, when, what, and where.
