Visualizing Physical Geography, 2nd Edition


ISBN: 9780470626153

With its unique approach, Visualizing Physical Geography, 2nd Edition demonstrates why physical geography is relevant to students. It relies heavily on the integration of National Geographic and other visuals with narrative to explore key concepts. New emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as climate change, overpopulation and deforestation, from a geographical perspective. Readers will appreciate this approach because it vividly illustrates the interconnectedness of physical processes that weave together to create our planet’s dynamic surface and atmosphere.


  • New features including “Science Tools,” “Where Geographers Click,” and “Video Explorations.”

  • More opportunities for critical thinking – Ask Yourself questions test student comprehension of figures and Put It Together questions ask students to combine information from the figure with previously learned material.
  • New emphasis on climate change and expanded coverage of important topics with enhanced visuals.
