Abstract


Key words: landscape, sustainability, spatio-temporal, multifaceted.

 

Geographical teaching and research primarily concerned with space and place on the face of the earth. The earth is unstable and its face is ever changing. The geographers always intend to understand the changing face of the unstable earth. The face of the earth is designed by diversified physical and cultural landscapes. Landscape is a 'function of structure, process and stage' and hence geography has to do with their structural and functional pattern in various stages of their evolution and development. Qualified geographers are well trained to examine the spatio-temporal pattern of diversified landscapes on the surface of the earth.
