Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The subject is structured in the individual thematic issues and is designed to give students the thorough understanding of the processes and phenomenons in the physical - geographical sphere, the ability to generalize and analyse those phenomenons and apply their learned knowledge in the study of other Earth spheres. After completing the course students should have the knowledge of the elementary (essential) ideas and understanding of both the important processes involved and role of all the other factors in physical - geographical sphere. They should be also able to use the holistic approach to the study of physical-geographical sphere with all its connections and relationships.

Summary

Course brings the elementary notion about the physical-geographical sphere of planet Earth with the emphasis on particular processes and phenomenons in this sphere. The understanding of the interconnection of particular processes, explanation of the causation, evolution and funcionality play the important role simultaneously. Overview of the processes forming the Earth surface and acquiring of them is the course aim. Special attention is on the dynamics of the continents, but seaflooor shapes are discussed too.
