Mesaage from the Chair

Physical geography is an important branch of geography. It deals with various natural systems of the earth and their relationship with human interventions. In the context of Bangladesh, physical geography has a wider scope for its application, particularly for natural system and environmental management and for physical planning. However, this branch of geography can further be improved through acquiring and disseminating knowledge by both formal and informal ways. Web based knowledge dissemination is an important means of learning in the contemporary world. I am happy to know that a web based academic blog on Physical Geography has been initiated under the guidance of Professor Dr. M. Shahidul Islam, Department of Geography and Environment of Dhaka University. I wish every success of this academic blog.
