    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.

    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.

    Made for UPSC aspirants

    UPSC aspirants simply go for it without it. The basic static concepts are explained very good here. Love the diagrammatic explanations. This of course won't be enough but would give you a good base. Supplement this book with some high course material
