Geography: The science of the Earth's surface, which describes and analyzes the spatial variations in physical, biological, and human phenomena that occur on the surface of the globe and treats their interrelationships and their significant regional patterns. (From Britannica Online)

Geography today is an integrative discipline that helps us understand the world and the human place within it. When geographers say they are "reading the landscape," they are studying the most important document humankind has created - the transformed surface of the earth.
