Conquering the Divides All Physical Geography

Friday November 3, 2006
PGB 101
2pm - 4pm

What do physical geographers have to do with the rest
of the department?  See how physical geography
contributes and relates to the department.  Learn how
planners and human/social geography are intricately
linked, and how physical geographers feel about Â?the
divide all.  Hear the perspective of faculty members,
and offer your own questions and comments.

* What are the realms of physical geography?

* Is there a divide between physical geography and the
rest of Geography and Planning?

* What may prevent physical geography from being fully
integrated into the Department?

* Does the St. George campus forget about the UTM and
UTSC campuses?

* Do collaborations strengthen or weaken the
department/physical geography?

* How can we further incorporate physical geography
into the other departmental silosÂ??

Dr. Jing Chen St. George - remote sensing, GIS,
hydrology, micrometeorology, modelling

Dr. Tenley Conway UTM - land use/land cover change,
