The Firefly Geography Dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of the major terms used in physical, human, and environmental geography. The dictionary assumes no prior specialist knowledge and concepts are explained clearly, so it will prove an invaluable reference source for the student and lay person, as well for the specialist requiring a quick reference dictionary. There are more than 1,500 articles on topics as diverse as the atmosphere, weather and climate, coastal formation, geomorphology, settlement, and economic development, with many cross-references to further valuable information on related subjects. A wealth of high-quality color illustrations explains and expands on themes and concepts described in the text.
