One of the important elements of physical geography is that it is examined by using a wide variety of techniques and approaches which makes for a rich subject and a diversity of findings. If everyone had the same method and approach to physical geography then this might actually hinder scientific progress, discovery and innovation. 4 million years. g. pollen records, fossils, gas bubbles trapped deep inside ice sheets and the contents of ocean floor sediments) and landform interpretation. It is often the mixture of backgrounds that physical geographers have, and the mixture of ideas about what they want to study, how much they want to achieve, and who they have been collaborating with, that defines how they will approach a new problem given to them.

The chapter describes the advantages and disadvantages of a be able to help manage our environment in a sustainable manner. Physical geography allows us to be conscious of the nature of natural and human-induced environmental change and to understand the implications of such change for human life, landscapes and the biosphere. Indeed the variety of scales at which geographers approach their subject permits them to adapt readily to the relevant scale of enquiry required by policy makers, helping to bridge the gap between science and society.

9 (a)). This flow of water speeds up as it is forced to rise above the pebble and this causes it to have increased ability to carry up more particles from the river bed. Therefore just downstream of the pebble the change in the flow of water causes the bed to erode and creates a scour hole. 16 a much larger oscillation of water along the river bed further pools and riffles develop upstream and downstream because the flow is oscillating. Once riffles have formed on the river bed water wants to move via an easier path around the Plan view Data from the probes was then analyzed in a numerical model which which has in turn affected the nature of the river bedform.
