Certificate Physical and Human Geography (English) 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs. 315

Certificate Physical And Human Geography covers various geographical concepts that are essential for a good understanding of the subject. This book is a good choice for preparing for competitive exams like CSAT.

Summary Of The Book

Certificate Physical And Human Geography provides coverage of fundamental concepts regarding the earth’s topology, the weather and climate, the different climatic regions, and vegetation across the planet. The book is divided into two parts, Physical Geography, and Weather, Climate and Vegetation. Physical Geography covers the various landforms and coastal regions. The second part covers climate and weather related concepts. Physical Geography begins by examining The Earth and its place in the Universe. It then goes on to explore the Earth’s Crust. Then the book looks at the effects that various natural forces have on the Earth’s surface. The book covers natural phenomena like Volcanoes and Earthquakes. It discusses the Weathering Process, Mass Movement, and Groundwater. It proceeds on to cover different landforms and the forces that shaped them. It looks at Desert Landforms, Landforms Made By Running Water, Limestone and Chalk Landforms, and Landforms of Glaciation. It also examines Coastal Landforms, The Oceans, Lakes, Islands and Coral Reefs.

The Weather, Climate and Vegetation section covers the concepts of Climate and Weather. It then focuses on different weather conditions and climate zones. It discusses the Hot, Wet Equatorial Climate. It also covers the Tropical Monsoon and Tropical Marine Climates. It looks at desert regions like the Hot Desert and Mid-Latitude Desert Climates. It also focuses on The Savanna or Sudan Climate, The Temperate Continental (Steppe) Climate, and The Mediterranean or Warm Temperate Western Margin Climate. Certificate Physical And Human Geography then covers cool climate zones. It discusses the Siberian or Cool Temperate Continental Climate, The Chinese type of climate or Warm Temperate Eastern Margin Climate. The book then focuses on the Laurentian or The Cool Temperate Eastern Margin Climate, the British or Cool Temperate Western Margin Climate and The Arctic or Polar Climate.

This book covers the physical topography of the planet, the landforms and the oceans, rivers and lakes. This comprehensive coverage helps the readers understand the dynamic nature of the planet, and the forces that shape it. It also discusses the vastly different climate conditions that prevail in different geographical parts of the planet. It is a good textbook to help students understand the fundamental concepts of physical geography and the weather and climate. It is also a good preparation material for exams like the Civil Services Preliminaries. The book contains numerous illustrations, maps, diagrams and photographs that complement the text, and each chapter also ends with a questions section to test comprehension of the concepts covered.

desperate need to UPDATE!!

Though its a 2012 reprint bt the edition is of the 70's.One can for once overlook the fact that its no longer BOMBAY n MADRAS but its distressing to see that PLUTO is still considered the 9th planet and USSR is still a country..such handiwork is not expected from 'THE' OXFORD PRESS!
However its quite lucid for understanding basics of physical geography.One may find several unnecessary chapters in terms of preparation fr UPSC but its worth a shot if one is a fresher!
FLIPKART's service was undoubtedly as always prompt n neat..indeed the best..!!

Ancient Geography

Geography of Ancient World:

1. Pluto yet to lose its planetary status.

2. Page-165 says "...industrial geography will be dealt with in much greater detail in Chapter-27." twist in the plot...this book has only 25 Chapters *TRRRANG*

3. Jump From P174 to P175 ....who knows what's missing.

Glad it is out of stock.

Google would be best than this book , Very much out Dated

As one user said in december 2011 , the pluto has been referred as ninth planet . but i m writing this in december 2012 still it is not updated that means there is no updated versions available .

( IAU in 2006( 6 yrs back and still the book is out of date ) passed resolutions which defined planets , dwarf planets and other celestial bodies distinctly . with respect to that resolutions , pluto has been assigned or represented as DWARF PLANET )

i guess school books would provide much updated details than this

so dont buy this one . if u still want this ,search for it in local books shops w

Best geography book ever.

Don't worry about people complaining that it is outdated. Concepts don't get outdated. This is book is so well written that you won't even feel like putting it down. The concepts are explained beautifully in a simple way. If you are preparing for any exam or just want to read about geography or whatever be your reason with geography in it, this is the book you are looking for.

A VERY GOOD INVESTMENT. DO NOT HESITATE. JUST BUY IT.

"Pluto still is the 9th planet" is not the only glitch. It has mentioned wrong/not updated info about number of moons of Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, no info on moon of mars...The old information needs to get updated.
