      Contributors: Putnam, Donald F., Physical geography (also known as geosystems or physiography) is one of the two major fields of geography. Physical geography is the branch of natural science which deals with the study of processes and patterns in the natural environment such as the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere, as opposed to the cultural or built environment, the domain of human geography.

      Geology and Terrain The geology and terrain of Ontario are best understood by first examining the foundation of bedrock geology underlying the surficial deposits and landforms. Table provides a summary of the geologic time scale rel-evant to Ontario’s bedrock and surficial geology. The bedrock geology of Ontario is variable in lithol-. Geography (from Greek: γεωγραφία, geographia, literally "earth description") is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, features, inhabitants, and phenomena of the Earth and planets.

        Indian Desert – Indian Physiography: The Indian desert is located in the northwest part of Aravali hills, also known as Thar desert. It is 9th largest desert in the world. The rainfall recieved is below mm per year. The vegetation in the Thar is semi-arid type with thorny bushes. The rivers are ephemeral and only Luni is a significant river. Navigational value of lead-line soundings and of the traces of bottom sediment adhering to the lead weight long ago caused soundings to be obtained routinely in shallow water, as indicated in B.C. by Herodotus (Carter, , book II, chap. 5).
