Description - Physical Geography by Ken J. Gregory
This four volume set begins by examining the knowledge of physical geography: from the quantitative revolution to current state of mathematical models. The principal environment spheres - for example, the biosphere - are examined to show the greater concern with environmental dynamics now central to the discipline. This work includes studies of environmental change, looking at short term as well as longer term change, and evaluating aspects of global change. Volume IV focuses on the total physical environment, examining human activity and human impact; environmental hazards; and applied physical geography.
SAGE Fundamentals of Geography is a series of authoritative Major Works in Human Geography and Physical Geography edited by internationally recognised scholars. The first two in the series are overview volumes on these two main subject areas. Taken together, these two sets demonstrate what is singular about the geographical imagination and the unique contribution its diverse perspectives makes to human science and natural science, as well as the link it provides between the human and the natural.
