GEOG 431
Geography of Water Resources

Summary and Final Tasks



The purpose of Lesson 5 was to introduce you to climate types throughout the world, which are closely tied to moisture levels, and hence, freshwater resources. Working your way through this lesson, do you think you gained a new appreciation for the diversity of climate types and how places and people are influenced by those physiographic characteristics? I hope so, because having an appreciation for the availability of water resources in a specific geographic area can provide insight into business opportunities, environmental challenges, and ecosystem characteristics.
