Geography of North America: Environment, Culture, Economy is an engaging approach to the geography of the U.S., Canada, and Greenland.

Kenya covers , km2 (, sq mi) and has a population of about 44 million in July The country is named after Mount Kenya, the second. Greenland is 1, mi (2, km) long from Cape Farewell (lat. 59°46′N) to Cape Morris Jesup (lat. 82°39′N) and has a maximum width of about mi (1, km). Geologically, the island is part of the Canadian Shield and, therefore, of North America; more than 50% of its ice-free area consists.

Physiographic regions of the world are a means of defining the Earth's landforms into distinct regions, based upon the classic three-tiered approach by Nevin M. Fenneman in , that separates landforms into physiographic divisions, physiographic provinces, and physiographic sections. The model became the basis for similar classifications of other [clarification needed] continents, and is.

There are no clear cut regional designations for Greenland; therefore for the purposes of the report Northern Greenland has been arbitrarily set as the area north of 79 on both the east and west coasts.

Studying in Greenland means studying from the Arctic desert landscapes in the far North, with its distinct cultural and climatic diversity, viewing the northern lights during the winter and midnight sun in the summer.

The topics touched on range from geological mapping and stratigraphic studies of Archaean to Quaternary rocks, economic assessments of mineral and petroleum deposits, as well as an airborne geophysical survey in West Greenland.

GREENLAND "Greenland Theory: Apocalypse Now" () explores the unrecognized but mighty conspiracy which has been hidden from humanity for ages, unfortunately to the detriment of all life forms which have inhabited planet Earth.

Bretz, in his chapter on "Physiographic studies," 3 is inclined to adopt T. Chamberlin's explanation for the cliffed glaciers of West Greenland: that the impinging of the sun's rays at low angles from all points of the compass in succession causes excessive melting on their margins.

Peary’s strategy for reaching the North Pole, developed through years of on-the-ground experience, was to sail as far north as possible between the northwestern coast of Greenland and Ellesmere Island, use the ice-bound vessel as a base, and send out leap-frogging teams to pre-position supplies (and igloos), until a final dash to the North Pole was possible.
