Abstract

The "earth sciences", geology and geography, represent the "patriarch" and the "youth" in their life span as fields of knowledge. Geography is an old science while geology is a relatively new arrival on the scene of learning. Geography dates back to the ancients while modern geology appeared only a little over a century ago, yet they are destined to walk one with the other. The geographer is interested primarily in the surface of the earth and its inhabitants while the geologist is concerned mainly with the earth as a whole. Still the one is dependent upon the other and man is dependent upon both because an adequate interpretation of the surface of the earth cannot be made without a knowledge of its interior and the earth processes.
