2 Chapter 1 Essentials of Geography Geosystems 5e An Introduction to Physical Geography Robert W. Christopherson Charlie Thomsen. 3 Key Learning Concepts After reading the chapter you should be able to: Define geography and physical geography in particular.

Geosystems, 7/e fully defines physical geography by offering the latest science in an Earth systems organization. With its detailed remote sensing imagery, excellent cartography, and photography alongside a student-friendly technology package,thebook offers a one-of-a-kind study of Physical Geography. Using the latest in satellite imagery and current statistical information, this book covers such topics as: the energy-atmosphere system; the water, weather, and climate systems; the earth-atmosphere interface; and soils, ecosystems, and biomes.

  • The book in terms of cleanliness was 4/5. The prior owner highlighted a few of the front few pages and wrote in pen, the kind of highlights that had no relevance or were really bad pen lines. Overall, I'm glad it was only a few pages.
    The book in course knowledge is absolutely great, I really do love the quality of the illustrations in detail and the words aren't so dense that you have to look up everything, topics/focuses are thoroughly separated and explained. Key concepts are highlighted and specific geography terms are put in it for you.
    I've had this book for about a year now and I travel with it only when I NEED to for heavy studying, yet it's one of the lightest texts I've ever had so you should be okay with traveling but not all the time. And the corners are beginning to fray a bit the papers are quite easy to possibly leave a hand there too long making the paper get a bit moist and crinkle the pages for example.
    If you need this for a course this source is good for this text, as an Environmental Studies major though it's helped me a lot with the foundations of Physical Geography which I'll be needing later in my major and career.

  • A professor of Geography at our nearby university recommended Christopherson't classic textbook. I am an adult learner who wanted to update my knowledge of physical geography. I learned an immense amount from this book! [I recommend getting the latest edition if you can afford it]. The book has countless references and links to further resources as well as an accompanying CD. Accessible to the non-specialist, yet comprehensive.

  • I found this textbook very informative. Went beyond simply giving the facts. All ideas and concepts were related to actual examples and were illustrated well. I understand many of the earth phenomena much better after using it.

    Highly recommend it.

  • I bought this for a college course in Environmental Science. There are a lot of really nice graphics and the text is recent, on point, and a great addition to the course material. I have no complaints yet.

  • When compared with my library's copy of this book,
    the seller actually sold the textbook with wrong page orientation,
    2 page world map is supposed to show as a whole, instead the book i received has a world map split into two, I would need to turn the pages.
    Some other distinct 2 page diagrams are affected as well.

    I suppose the printing factory realized they printed it wrongly and decided to sell it online.

  • I purchased the book with the Annual Editions: Geography. It's a hard cover and real smooth. The graphics are very detail oriented and easy to follow. I had a great time in class with this book and still refer to it when reviewing the weather around in my area or checking the weather information or geographic information to areas that I will be traveling to. Great interactive book.

  • This is an excellent textbook with great pictures, graphs, and explanations of the subject matter in each chapter. The explanations are clear without being overly wordy. There are newer editions but this one answers all of my questions.

  • Got this after my professor said the 7th edition could also be used in the course in place of the 8th or 9th editions. There are very minor differences between the 7th and 9th editions. Some of the chapters have different numbers between the two.
