"By what way is light diffused, or the east wind scattered over the earth?  Who has divided the channel for the overflowing water, or a path for the thunderbolt, to cause it to rain on a land where there is no one, a wilderness where there is no man to satisfy the desolate waste and cause to spring forth the growth of tender grass?"
 - Job 38:24-27.


Physical Geography is an introduction into the systems and processes that shape the planet earth and everything on its surface. Join the fun of exploring the questions asked centuries ago as we seek to unravel the mysteries of the environment of the planet we live on; how we are affected by it, and how we as humans can alter it as well.
