What is Geography?

Different characteristics of the natural environment (e.g. climate, minerals, topography, oceans) lead to humans establishing different activities on the Earth's surface (e.g. a mine, a farm, a city or a resort). Different activities influence the natural and socio-economic environment in different ways (e.g. pollution or socio-economic and ethical-moral problems). Geography and Environmental Management studies the total human-nature system with the purpose to understand and manage land use patterns and the influences thereof on the environment.
