What is Environmental and Geographical Sciences?
Environmental and geographical science have a common focus on studying the environment, its components, and the interactions between humans and the natural world. However, they do differ in many ways.
Geographical science comprises the study of the Earth’s physical features, climate, human populations, and the relationships between them. It looks at spatial patterns, explores cultural and social phenomena and analyses the interactions between humans and their environment.
Environmental science focuses more on understanding the environment and covers ecosystems, natural resources, and the impact of human activities on the planet. In the search for sustainable solutions, environmental science often combines biology, chemistry, physics and earth science to address environmental issues.
