The Penguin Dictionary of Physical Geography covers common geographical terms (such as anticyclone, mackerel sky, tropical rain-forest), as well as less familiar ones (badlands, frog-earth, reflective beach, white smoker). This invaluable dictionary is ideal for students of geography at all levels and for anyone who deals with the subject in the course of their work.
