This Study Guide is designed to enhance your understanding of physical geography. It supplements, and will help yo to build upon, your reading of the textbook's units and your classroom learning experiences. There is a section consisting of Review Questions that focus on the major ideas introduced in each unit, a useful preparation for short essay examinations. Also includes a self-test that can be used to prepare for short answer exams; for each unit, six multiple choice and six true/false questions are provided, with answers found at the end of the Study Guide. The third edition of Physical Geography: The Global Environment covers complex topics including long-distance weather linkages, biodiversity, and global change in a manner easily accessible to first- and second-year undergraduates. Set against a backdrop of human interaction with the environment, the text offers comprehensive treatments of Earth's five major components: the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, the cryosphere, and the biosphere.
