Disc 3. Layering the Planet: Geography has found that Earth is organized into a sequence of spheres: the inner core, the crust or lithosphere, a soil layer, known as the pedosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere and biosphere. Alec Murphy shows how they are all interconnected in one dynamic system. Geographical Regions: Regions are one of the most important tools used in geographical thinking. Alec Murphy shows how the planet is divided into physiographic regions, each with internal dynamic processes. Then he defines the three types of regions: formal, functional, and colloquial.
An eight part series that explores the dramatic discoveries of the forces shaping planet Earth and provides a blueprint for understanding how place and process combined to shape every aspect of the planet's physical and cultural landscape. Host Alexander B. Murphy opens the door to a whole new way of seeing and making sense of the world we find ourselves in.
