Geographers look at the physical landscape with a similar appreciation, asking the questions, "how did. Human activities have had a huge impact on the environment and landscape, through industrialisation and land-use change, leading to climate change, deforestation, desertification, land degradation, and air and water pollution.

These impacts are strongly linked to the occurrence of geomorphological hazards, such as floods, landslides, snow avalanches.

However, human activities can also strongly influence the propensity of landforms to erode. Geomorphology is the science of landforms, with an emphasis on their origin, evolution, form, and distribution across the physical landscape.
