Physical Geography - Books and Journals

Springer's books and journals on physical geography focus on the Earth's atmosphere, i.e. the geosphere. In addition to dealing with the five spheres that correspond to the geo-factors climate, water, soil, rocks and vegetation, physical geography also strives for a holistic view of the geosphere. Our books and journals describe, for example, the structure of effects of geo- and biofactors, the material and energy balance of landscapes, the consequences of human intervention and the possibilities of responsible landscape design. Our publications include the book series Geography of the Physical Environment and World Geomorphological Landscapes.
