Tutor description

The landscapes covered in the different parts of the globe fall under the category of geomorphology, climatology, and biogeography (Wiens JA, 1992). The named fields explain the existence and composition of the world’s present landforms, influenced by the change in climate patterns which cause the land masses to have different shapes, and uneven distribution of islands and continents (Hall, C.M. 2006). As a result, the processes experienced in the land include mountain building processes, plate tectonics, and surface erosion processes. Such geologic processes slowly change the composition and scenery of the earth that take part in different physical features (Forman RTT, 1995).

Shugart, (1987), three rock structuressupport the land surface, which undergo various processes to change the surface above. Thechanges are responsible for the degree and intensity of the landscapes, accounting for the 6%dramatic and energetic landforms along with the 96% covering the other parts of the world(Wiens JA, 1992).Landscapes of the world 3Sedimentary, Metamorphic, and Igneous rocks cover most of the regions below the surface.Sedimentary rocks comprise layers of waterborne elements and air perforations. Underintense pressure, the components synthesize into rocks such as shale, limestone, sandsto
