Geographical region

A geographical region or physical region, or briefly region, is a large extension of land surface distinguished by its own characteristics that can vary from the conformation of the land to the geographical position, climate, fauna, flora, up to characteristics dependent on the action of man, ie culture, history and language. Therefore it can coincide in whole

Geophysics

Geophysics (also called terrestrial physics) is a predominantly experimental science, which deals in general with the application of physical measurements and methods to the study of the physical properties and phenomena of planet Earth. Although it is an autonomous science, has an eminently interdisciplinary structure, as it uses the observations and results of many disciplines that

Mineral

Minerals (from Medieval Latin “minerale”, derived from Old French minière, “mine”) are inorganic, naturally occurring bodies characterized by high atomic-scale ordering and a chemical composition that is either well-defined (but not fixed) or variable over a narrow range; they make up the earth’s crust and other celestial bodies. They are all solid (except for native mercury).

Soil

For soil there are two different meanings: geographically (also soil or even pedosphere – from the Greek πέδον, pedon, ground, earth and sphere when considered part of the geosphere), is the surface layer that covers the earth’s crust, resulting from the alteration of a rocky substrate, called parent rock, by chemical, physical and biological action exerted by

Demography

Demography (from Ancient Greek δῆμος (dêmos) ‘people, society’, and -γραφία (-graphía) ‘writing, drawing, description’) is the science concerned with the study of human populations, dealing with their amount, composition, development, and general characters, considered mainly from a quantitative point of view.

Meridian

A meridian, or line of longitude, in geography is an imaginary arc connecting the Earth’s North and South Poles, or a line connecting the (two) points through which the Earth’s axis of rotation passes. A meridian, together with its antimeridian, forms the largest circle formed by the intersection of a plane through the Earth passing

Biogeography

Biogeography is the science that studies the distribution in space and time of living organisms and the causes that determine it. In fact, organisms and biological communities often vary on a regular basis following geographical gradients such as latitude, altitude, isolation and habitat. This science deals with investigating the extension, development, rotation over time, and overlapping
