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.
