You are responsible for lecture material through Oct 6, chapters 1-4 in your textbook, and the media readings posted on [email protected] through Oct 6. Note on physical features: Since you have already taken a quiz on the location of physical features, there will be no questions of that kind on the exam. However, there will be physical feature questions that focus on the origins of or processes that created certain physical features (e.g, how was the English Channel formed?), about the importance of certain kinds of features (e.g., the fertility of loess soils), and about the general characteristics of the four physical feature regions (Northwest Highlands, North European Plain, Hercynian Uplands, and the Alpine and Mediterranean South) outlined in lecture and in your text, as well as the surrounding seas (i.e., in what ways would you differentiate between them?) and the special case of Iceland. In general, the exam attempts to test your knowledge of general processes and characteristics of Europe’s physical geography, population dynamics, and human-environment relationships.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
