Geomorphology is a study of  landforms, including  their classification, description nature, origin, development and relationship to underlying structures. Also the history of geologic changes are recorded by these surface features. The term is sometimes restricted to features produced only by erosion: 3) Erosional Landforms - landforms formed from the removal of weathered and eroded surface materials by wind, water, glaciers, and gravity. This includes landforms with some of the following geomorphic features: river valleys, glacial valleys, and coastal cliffs. and deposition: (4) Depositional Landforms - landforms formed from the deposition of weathered and eroded surface materials. On occasion, these deposits can be compressed, altered by pressure, heat and chemical processes to become sedimentary rocks. This includes landforms with some of the following geomorphic features: beaches, deltas, flood plains, and glacial moraines.

11) Introduction to Geomorphology :   

(1) Structural Landforms - landforms that are created by massive earth movements due to plate tectonics. This includes landforms with some of the following geomorphic features: fold mountains, rift valleys, and volcanoes.

Cultural geography:

The study of countries', cultures, customs, foods, clothing, music, architecture, traditions, religions and languages of the world. The world has about 200 different nations and over 6,000 distinct languages in it. Since languages are a basic part of forming a basis for a culture, then there are over 6,000 different cultures in the world also. Since it would be almost impossible to represent them all on this webpage, a sample of some of the world's general or main cultural pools is shown below from the geographic areas of Africa, Asia, Europe, the Americas and Oceania.

Of the 6,000 or so languages in the world, most are spoken by small tribal groups and only about 12-15 are used in a widespread fashion in international trade and politics. The rest are national languages of the dominant culture in any given nation except in Africa and the Americas, where the official national languages are often that of their former European colonialists. In the recent past, of course, 'English' has become the accepted international language of trade.

 Cultural impact to the people all over the world.

 Economic Geography:

The primary objective of this course is to familiarize you with the basic concepts related to the advance, spread, and distribution of economic activity across the planet. The idea of a world marketplace is rapidly becoming a reality, along with a worldwide pattern of transition to open market economies in countries whose economies were previously controlled by their governments. This course looks at the forces that are reshaping the global economy, the fundamentals of spatial economics, classical locational theories, and trade. Journals and reading resources:
