Physical Geography is fascinating. It's NOT about memorizing state capitals. It's about finding patterns in the natural world.
When you look at the landscape as a physical geographer, you understand why dangerous storms are more likely to form over the Great Plains (Tornado Alley) and why Florida is a dangerous location for sinkholes. You see the world differently.
What can you do?
- Meteorology: thunderstorms, tornadoes, floods
- Climatology: ice cores, urban heat islands, extreme events
- Geomorphology: earthquakes, volcanoes, sinkholes, tsunamis
- Biogeography: wildfires, ecosystems, sustainability
