Geomorphology, Climatology, Hydrogeography
Hydrography is a branch of geography consisting of the
description and systematic study of water bodies planetary, especially water resources continental.
hydrography is linked to other geographical sciences, in
particular with geomorphology, hydrology and climatology
Geomorphology, the branch of Physical Geography that studies the relief, is dedicated to explain how they originated and how they have evolved those forms of relief.
Climatology is the branch of Geography that deals with
study of climate and weather.

the surface of the Earth, a "envelope" that, in addition to its extension, it has a certain thickness in depth and height.
Geography studies nature and societies
