Physical geography is one of the two major branches of systematic geography. It consists of the four main spheres of the earth i.e., lithosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere. Physical geographers study the nature of natural phenomena and processes operating in these spheres. This course would enable the learners to observe spatial variations and similarities in natural phenomenon and reasons for these, and the consequences thereof, in relation to human beings.
