Example text

In determining the nature of the landscape, geology thus has a profound influence on the available setting for the development of human settlements. The landscape affects the vegetation, the soils, and even the climate of a particular location. It affects the nature of communications with other areas, and it also determines what materials are available for the construction of dwellings or other buildings in a developing city. Geology may also determine the availability of the resources that are needed for industrial or other purposes.

Then, when things get hot in summer, we may use the same energy resources to cool our houses by air-conditioning. As well as the space heating within our city dwellings and offices, we also generate heat as we travel around in our various means of transport. The internal combustion engines that drive most of our cars and buses burn fossil fuels and generate a great deal of waste heat that is forced out into the atmosphere in the exhaust fumes. This raises the temperature of our city streets, as do the streetlights that we keep switched on in the city throughout the night.

Conclusions Geography plays a key role in determining where farms and cities have become established. Agricultural lands are found only where the climate permits crops to grow or domesticated animals to survive and graze. Very cold and very dry parts of the world are not suitable for agriculture. The very high latitudes (the polar regions), besides being cold, also have the disadvantage of short winter days or even darkness, so that the growing season is very limited. Cities, on the other hand, are generally situated where communications are good rather than where agricultural productivity is highest.
