Geography

Athabasca glacier fall field study

Geographers attempt to understand the spatial location and movement of physical and human features on the earth’s surface by asking such fundamental questions as "Where is it?" "Why is it there?" and "How does it relate to other locations?"  It is especially interested in how physical phenomena (climate, rivers, coastlines) affect human activities and how humans modify the earth’s surface (cities, agriculture, dams).  The focus is on understanding the spatial organization and spatial relationships that underlie the physical and human landscapes at local, regional and global scales.
