Restructuring physical geography

Description :
The tripartite division of physical geography into geomorphology, climatology and biogeography is still often quoted, but developments in the last 2 decades have resulted in restructuring of the discipline. Significant publications by physical geographers now occur dominantly in multidisciplinary rather than in core geographical journals. Analysis of the contents of 10 journals and of the submissions to the 1996 UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) demonstrate the current pre-eminence of 2 sub-disciplines geomorphology with hydrology and Quaternary environmental change. The AA. indicate how physical geography globally could have a pivotal role in the advancement of sustainable human systems.
