OVERVIEW

This course focuses on the analysis of the relantionships between geomorphological, climatic and environmental conditions and touristic activities  within land management and planning

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course is aimed at providing theoretical and practical notions necessary to deal with the relationships between meteo-climate conditions, geomorphological features and tourist activities, also referring to land planning and management. Regional case studies, representative of various types of anthropic impact and geomorphological risk conditions, will be presented.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Regional case studies, representative of various types of geotourism valorization, anthropic impact and geomorphological risk conditions, will be presented for the comprehension of the role of Physical  geography and Geomorphology in land planning.

TEACHING METHODS

Online Lectures and  practical exercises 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT
