Geomorphological research in the humid to seasonal tropics has primarily concentrated on the most characteristic landform assemblage of this zone, namely that of stepped, largely undissected etchplains, often dotted with inselbergs and cutting across ancient basement rocks. Although the author discusses extensively this subject, he puts particular emphasis on the differences of chemical. 7 Rivers in the tropics Components of a river system Water in river channels Sediment in river channels Channel geometry Channel network and nodes River systems of the humid tropics Questions 8 Alluvial valleys Fluvial depositional environment The alluvial valley The paper describes experimental work on air-conditioned cubicles designed to furnish a comfortable indoor climate for residents in the tropics, at an economic cost. In the earlier part of the paper physiological and physical considerations are reviewed.

Tropical geometry is a variant of algebraic geometry in which polynomial graphs resemble piecewise linear meshes, and in which numbers belong to the tropical semiring instead of a field. Because classical and tropical geometry are closely related, results and methods can be converted between them. Tropical geometry can be described as "algebraic geometry" over the semifield $\mathbb{T}$ of tropical numbers. As a set, $\mathbb{T}=\mathbb{R}\cup \{ -\infty\}$; this is endowed with addition being given by the (usual) maximum of real numbers and multiplication by the (usual) sum of real numbers. It's a free Google book which covers basic Euclidean Geometry based on Euclid's five postulates, has a large number of exercises, and some enrichment material on what was called "Modern Geometry" in , topics like Simson's line, the radical axis, poles and polars, inversion, etc. I'm using it to tutor some home-school kids in Geometry. The first approach adopted by the geographers to generalize the patterns of human occupations of the earth surface was deterministic. Their major initial source for explanations was the physical environment, and that theoretical position was established around the belief that the nature of human activity was controlled by the parameters of the physical world within which it was set.
