Geography is the study of physical features on the surface of the earth as well as the diverse biological and cultural characteristics of our planet. The earth is a remarkable place that lies just at the right distance from the Sun for life to exist and prosper. Water lies on the earth's surface, forming oceans that cover more than two-thirds of the globe. Large continents rise above sea level, forming habitats for man and countless other species. Atmospheric air currents carry moisture over land areas, where it falls as rain and snow to facilitate plant growth and provide water to drink. And man has farmed the earth and used its natural resources it in many ways.
