The course aims to provide geography's fundamental theoretical tools, and to use them as keys for understanding the reality of landscape research and the developments of landscapes in Europe. AIMS AND CONTENT LEARNING OUTCOMES This course consists of the basis of landscape science and contains theoretical modules and an exercise: Theoretical modules: Introduction: the concept of landscape defined from different perspectives, situation and history of landscape science, disciplines that study the landscape Approaches to landscape research and basic concepts: holism, patterns & processes Analysis of spatial patterns and synthesis of the landscape: building blocks (landscape elements, components and structures). Landscape mapping, sources and methods for landscape and environmental research and monitoring Landscape classification: typology and chorology, landscape characterization During the modules, the genesis of landscapes and environments in Europe is addressed by the integration of case studies. Practical exercises: individual landscape observation with terrain mapping and map and aerial photo analysis, written reporting AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the course, students will be able to: Correct use of science related terminology: definitions and concepts. To be able to actively apply basic concepts of landscape science in the observation and analysis of landscapes and environment. Searching for and critical analysis of the various sources of landscape analysis for the purpose of a landscape analysis. Observing and analysis of landscapes actively by means of a practical exercise. Written report of the landscape observation, including the use of photographs and cartographic material.
