Geography

Geography is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth.The first person to use the word "γεωγραφία" was Eratosthenes (276–194 BC).Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks an understanding of the Earth and its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be. It is often defined in terms of the two branches of human geography and physical geography. The four historical traditions in geographical research are: spatial analyses of natural and the human phenomena, area studies of places and regions, studies of human-land relationships, and the Earth sciences.Geography has been called "the world discipline" and "the bridge between the human and the physical sciences".
