CHAPTER 1 INTRO TO WORLD GEOGRPHAY Geography – Greek Routes – “to write about or describe the earth”  Broadly applicable, allows analysis on everything in earth’s space.  The study of people, place, environment, and space. PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY: centered on earth, environment, and human- environment interactions. SOCIAL VULNERABILITY: areas with high concentrations vulnerable populations PHYSICAL VULNERABILITY: road networks, related to storm sewage and drainage HUMAN GEOGRAPHY: study of humans, people in certain places (women in Saudi Arabia stayed even though the conditions were horrible) REMMITANCES: guest workers in a country sending the money home HUMAN ENVIRONMENT INTERACTIONS: humans transformative effect on natural surroundings and are dependent on the natural environment two-way street  Geography is the intersection between social, physical, and natural sciences.  Geographers use scale in two ways: 1) Distance on maps and on earth. 2) Scale of analysis. The geographical scope where we analyze and understand a phenomenon. REGIONS: created to understand the world’s complexity in an area with a degree of similarity that differentiates it from surrounding areas. - Today, humans can construct regions through a variety of criteria. - Scales can be used to define regions; scales always need a key. - REGIONAL BOUNDARIES=transition zones. - Regions, while they may be limiting, helps us order the world. Helps us imagine the vastness of the world.
