Changing the nature of physical geography

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Developments in physical geography since 1985 include not only continuation of pre-existing trends towards quantification, model building, process investigations, human impact and applications, but also changes prompted by the range of new techniques available. Advances in remote sensing, geographical information systems and information technology have enabled a more global approach; a second new development has been the advent of a more culturally-based approach throughout many branches of physical geography. By 2000 a series of issues can be identified including the increasingly holistic trend, greater awareness of a global approach and of environmental change problems
