Europe :  Europe Geography 200 Dr. Stavros Constantinou MAJOR GEOGRAPHIC QUALITIES:  MAJOR GEOGRAPHIC QUALITIES Western extremity of Eurasia Lingering world influence High degrees of specialization Manufacturing dominance Numerous nation-states Urbanized population High standards of living RELATIVE LOCATION:  RELATIVE LOCATION At the heart of the land hemisphere Maximum efficiency for contact with the rest of the world Every part of Europe is close to the sea. Navigable waterways Moderate distances Location:  Location Excluding Russia, Europe occupies only 3.4% of the global surface (2,284,509 sq. miles). Europe has a high-latitude northerly location. Much of Europe lies north of the conterminous United States (north of the 49th parallel). Scotland lies in the same general latutude as Hudson Bay, and Norway has many communities located as far north as the northern mainland of Canada. Location:  Location Europe has an irregular outline, and is largely formed of peninsulas. The main European peninsula is surrounded by: First order peninsulas: Scandinavian, Iberian, Italian and Balkan peninsulas. Second order peninsulas: Jylland (Jutland), Bretagne (Brittany), Cornwall, Peloponnesos (Peloponnesus) and others. The complex mingling of land and water has provided much of Europe with many opportunities for maritime activities. Location:  Location Andorra Austria Belarus Czech Republic Slovakia Hungary Liechtenstein Luxembourg Switzerland Macedonia Moldova San Marino Vatican City Europe has 13 landlocked states: Most places in Europe are no more than 640 km (400 miles) from the sea. By contrast, parts of the U,S, interior are more than 1600 km (1000 miles) from salt water. Physical Geography -- Landforms:  Physical Geography -- Landforms Western Uplands (Northwestern Highlands) Hard, geologically ancient rock Shaped by glaciation – thin soils, fjords Scandinavia, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Portugal Spain North European Plain (Lowland) Extensive region, a prominent feature of Europe; includes parts of France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Poland, the Baltic states, Belarus and Russia Rich in natural resources; coal, natural gas, potash, salt, iron ore, Largest cultivated region Most densely populated of Europe's land regions Central Uplands Lower and less rugged than mountain regions, geologically older Important deposits of metals and coal Alpine Mountains High mountains, rugged plateaus, steeply sloping land The Alps, the Pyrenees, the Apennines, Dinaric Alps, and the Carpathians Highest peak is Mont Blanc –4807 meters (15,771 feet) Active volcanoes in southern Europe: Mt. Aetna, Mt. Vesuvius Europe’s Climate:  Europe’s Climate Climatic controls Warm currents (North Atlantic Drift) Westerly winds Differential of heating between land and water Europe’s climate is mild for its latitude London’s average winter temperature is about the same as Richmond, VA, which is 1500 km (950 miles) farther south. The British Isles, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Germany and Poland lie north of the conterminous United States Most lowlands receive 50 centimeters (20 inches) of precipitation per year: Average in lowlands is 50-89 centimeters A few highland areas receive 102 (40 inches) –254(100 inches) centimeters per year Climate Types::  Climate Types: Marine West Coast (Cfb) Humid subtropical (Cfa) Mediterranean or Dry Summer Subtropical (Csa) Humid continental (Dfa) Subarctic (Dc, Dd) Tundra (ET) Undifferentiated Highlands (H) Vegetation:  Vegetation Coniferous forest – Scandinavia Regions once forested but now mostly cleared for agricultural and industrial development: Coniferous forest – Germany and Poland Mixed deciduous forest – southern England, France, Czech Republic,Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Southern Europe's extensive oak forests have been reduced to maquis (brush) and garigue (low scrub). Macchia in Italy, chaparral in California. Reforestation efforts are underway. Soils:  Soils Generally acidic (Lime is added to balance acidity) Low fertility (alfisols, inceptisols, histosols, spodosols and entisols) Favorable soils: Loess – central France and Poland Mollisols – Danubian Plain Natural Resources:  Natural Resources Rich in a variety of mineral resources Energy sources – coal and petroleum Iron ore deposits – Sweden, Czech Republic, Alsace-Lorraine (France), English Midlands Bauxite – Hungary, Greece Lead -- Sweden Zinc --Sweden Scenery – tourist industry River Systems:  River Systems Rivers of Northern Europe Swift in summer, frozen in winter Important for generation of electricity Limited use for navigation Rivers of Central Europe Most important river of Europe is the Rhine. Carries more freight than any other river in the world. Originates in Alpine mountain chains of central Europe and flows through Switzerland, Germany, France and The Netherlands Rivers of Southern Europe Of limited use for navigation because of dry summers and high water flow in winter and spring Danube Is the longest river in Europe, but is handicapped by site situation characteristics: Rapids at middle course “iron gate” make navigation impossible Flows through agricultural areas, rather than industrial Other important rivers: Thames (London); Rhone (Marseilles); Seine (Paris); Schelde (Antwerp); Elbe (Hamburg), Po (Italy). Population Geography:  Population Geography Europe’s 2003 population was 582,800,778. Generally highly literate and skilled. Europe is the third largest population cluster, after East Asia and Southern Asia. Extremely high population densities are found in western European countries, especially Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg – Benelux. Population densities are not as high in Eastern and Southern Europe. Nordic Europe, with the exception of Denmark, is sparsely populated. EUROPE’S CHANGING POPULATION:  Current characteristics of Europe’s population: Falling share of the world’s population Fertility is at an all-time low Fewer young people Smaller working age population Boom & bust age-dependent Immigration partially offsetting losses EUROPE’S CHANGING POPULATION Urban Geography:  Urban Geography Europe is among the most highly urbanized regions of the world. Europe's proportion of urban population has grown from 54% in 1950 to 73% in 2003. Western European countries have a higher percentage of population living in cities than Eastern Europe. The most urbanized countries are: Belgium – 97% Iceland – 94% United Kingdom – 90% Germany – 86% France --- 74% The least urbanized countries are: Bosnia-Herzegovina – 40% Albania – 46% Moldova – 46% Urban Geography:  Urban Geography The urban system of many European countries follows the law of the primate city. According to the law of the primate city, a country’s leading city is “disproportionately large and exceptionally expressive of national capacity and feeling.” (Mark Jefferson, 1939). Examples: Paris personifies France London personifies the UK Amsterdam personifies the Netherlands Warsaw personifies Poland Athens personifies Greece Vienna personifies Austria Stockholm personifies Sweden Urban Geography:  Urban Geography The trend in European urbanization is toward U.S. style suburbanization. European city-scapes differ from North American cities due to: Long histories Scarce land Strong government control of urban land development The internal spatial structure of the European metropolis consists of the central city and its suburban ring, as in London. Urban Geography:  Urban Geography The CBD contains the main concentration of business, government, shopping facilities and wealthiest residences. Broad residential sectors radiate outward from CBD with considerable class differentiation. European suburbs are high-density satellite towns or villages surrounded by open countryside that is heavily utilized for recreational purposes. Cultural Geography:  Cultural Geography The cultural geography of Europe is very diverse and complex. Europe is a cultural mosaic, based on language and religion. Language Groups:  Language Groups Indo-European Family (Major group, detail in next slide) Urallic Family Finnic Northwest (Finnish, Karelian, Estonian) Lapp Ugrian (Hungarian) Altaic Family – Turkish, in Turkish foothold in Europe Semitic Family – Maltese, spoken on island of Malta Basque Family – spoken by the Basques of Southwestern France and Northern Spain Indo-European Family of Languages:  Indo-European Family of Languages Teutonic (Germanic) – English, German-Dutch (Dutch, Flemish and German) and Scandinavian (Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and Icelandic). Romanic (Latin) – French (French and Walloon), Spanish (Castilian and Catalan), Portuguese (Portuguese and Galician), Italian (Italian and Sardinian), Romansch (Rhaeto-Romanic), Romanian (Romanin and Vlakh). Romania, an outlier of the Roman empire, managed to retain its Romance language. Slavic – Western Slavic (Polish, Czech and Slovak), Eastern Slavic (Russian, Ukrainian,Byelo-Ruthenian), Southern Slavic (Slovene, Serbo-Croat, Bulgarian) Baltic – Latvian and Lithuanian Illyrian -- Albanese Hellenic -- Greek Celtic – Irish, Gaelic, Welsh, Breton Religion:  Religion The predominant religion in Europe is Christianity. Islam is the predominant religion of Albania, and is the religion of many immigrants to northwestern Europe from the Middle East and North Africa. Religion as a unifying (centripetal) cultural force has been unable to overcome the disunifying (centrifugal) force of nationalism in Europe. Religion:  Religion Christians number 558,729,000 or 76.6% of a total European population of 729,406,000. Roman Catholicism dominates in southern Europe, Poland and eastern Germany. 286,124,000 or 39.2% of total European population. Eastern Orthodoxy is the predominant faith in eastern Europe and Greece. 158,775,000 or 21.8% of Europe’s population. Protestantism (especially Lutheran churches) is the major religion in northern and northwestern Europe. 85,924,000 or 11.8% of the population. Anglicanism (Episcopalian) number 25,632,000 or 3.5% of Europe's population. Non Christians: Islam: 31,401,000 or 4.3% of the total population Judaism: 2,530,000 or 0.3% of the total population Economic Geography – Primary Sector of Production :  Economic Geography – Primary Sector of Production Agriculture High degree of commercialization Dairy farming and livestock farming Specialized subtropical crops in Mediterranean Europe. Major crops Cereals, with wheat the leading cereal grain Rye – Germany and Poland Corn (maize) – Danube plains of Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia, the Po river valley of Northern Italy and the southwestern lowland of France. Oats and barley Irrigated rice Economic Geography – Primary Sector of Production:  Economic Geography – Primary Sector of Production Fisheries High degree of commercialization North sea countries and Iceland Dogger Bank in the North Sea is a famous fishing ground. Norway is the European leader in quantity of fish caught. Europe depends heavily on food imports. It is self-sufficient in milk, potatoes and rye. It imports wheat, corn, oil cake, soybeans, vegetable fats and oils, chilled and frozen meats, cane sugar, cocoa, coffee and tobacco; fibers (cotton and wool predominantly) and natural rubber. Economic Geography – Secondary Sector of Production:  Economic Geography – Secondary Sector of Production Europe produces a wide range of industrial goods, from the most basic to the most technologically advanced. Globalization has caused major changes in the industrial sector. Some famous European products are: Swiss watches English woolens Scotch whiskeys German porcelain and cameras Bohemian glassware Irish linens French wines, brandies and liqueurs Major Industrial Regions of Europe:  Major Industrial Regions of Europe The “Four Motors of Europe” are: Southeastern France’s Rhone-Alpes region (anchored by Lyon). Northern Italy’s Lombardy (anchored by Milan). Northeastern Spain’s Catalonia (anchored by Barcelona). Southern Germany's Baden-Württemburg (anchored by Stuttgart). Other important European industrial regions: Sweden: Switzerland: Poland: Austria: Italy: Venice Spain: Bilbao Ukraine: Donbas Slide30:  Movement across geographic space Involves contact of people in two or more places for the purposes of exchanging goods or ideas Principles Complementarity Transferability Intervening opportunity SPATIAL INTERACTION Slide31:  Two places, through an exchange of goods, can specifically satisfy each other’s demands. One area has a surplus of an item demanded by a second area. COMPLEMENTARITY Slide32:  The ease with which a commodity may be transported or the capacity to move a good at a bearable cost Rivers, Mountain Passes, Road networks Advances in transportation technology TRANSFERABILITY Slide33:  The presence of a nearer source of supply or opportunity that acts to diminish the attractiveness of more distant sources and sites Would Austrian beer be cheaper to import into Italy? INTEREVENING OPPORTUNITY The British Isles: Four regions:  The British Isles: Four regions The South – London is the center. London is Europe’s largest city (7,650,944 people) and the world’s ninth largest Metropolitan London has a conurbation area of 12,000,000 inhabitants, one of the worlds largest. 20,000,000 of the 59,800,000 total UK population (33.4%) live in the South region. The Green Belt (1944) is a zone for recreation and farming set aside to surround London in order to stem and channel the city’s vast urban sprawl The British Isles: Four regions:  The British Isles: Four regions The North (North of Bristol-Norwich line) Dominated by economic stagnation following the decline of the industrial base of the country. 50,000 jobs were lost in the 1980s. Revitalization efforts have met with limited success. Long term impact uncertain. Suffering cities: Manchester Leeds Sheffield Birmingham Liverpool The British Isles: Four regions:  The British Isles: Four regions Scotland and Wales Rugged, remote highland territories. Southern Wales (Cardiff-Swansea) is a depressed industrial region. Scotland’s industrialization focused on the Clyde and Firth of Forth because of nearby coal, iron ore and the excellent port of Glasgow. The British Isles: Four regions:  The British Isles: Four regions Northern Ireland Part of the United Kingdom Capital city Belfast Comprises six counties: Antrim, Armaugh, Down, Fermanagh, Londonderry, and Tyrone. Historical religious conflict between the Catholics and Protestants Religious make-up: Catholic 35% Presbyterian 29% Church of Ireland 24% Methodist 5% Devolution (1976): the disintegration of a nation state as a result of reviving regionalism; the redistribution of authority and the restructuring of the political framework of the United Kingdom; among the proposals under consideration is the creation of a federal state in Britain and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland:  The Republic of Ireland The Republic of Ireland is about one-half the size of Arkansas. Capital city is Dublin. Geographically, the Irish Central Plain surrounded to the north, south and west hills and low, rounded mountains. Largely agricultural, 65% of land use is agricultural. Marked rural poverty Problem of depopulation. France:  France Second largest European country (after Ukraine) with an area about 80% the size of Texas. Shaped like an irregular hexagon. 35% of land use is agricultural. Geographic features: Massif Central The Alps (Mont Blanc, 4807 m. or 15,771 ft.) The Pyrenees The Jura Mountains Paris, France:  Paris, France Paris is a classic primate city. Population 2,152,423 inhabitants; metro area population 10,275,000. It has an excellent site and situation. Founded on Ile de la Cité on the Seine, a place easy to defend. Located in the center of a large and prosperous agricultural area. The focal point of the confluence of several navigable rivers, the Marne, Yonne, and Oise, with the Seine. Specialized, small scale luxury industries Germany:  Germany Following reunification, Germany has a land area of 356,774 sq. km. (134,830 sq. mi.) and a population of 82,400,000 in 2002. Accessible location due to the navigability of the Rhine and Elbe rivers. Landforms: The North German Plain: Effect of glaciation Moraines Terminal moraines east of the Elbe river The varied terrain of Central and Southern Germany: Bavarian Alps, Bohemian Forest, Ore Mountains (Erzegebirge), Uplands of Saxony, Black Forest, Oden Forest, Rhine Upland The Harz Mountains and the Thuringian Forest The low Jura Upland at the south. Germany: Climate, Soils and Vegetation:  Germany: Climate, Soils and Vegetation Maritime influences prominent in northwest; increasingly continental influences toward the east and south. Soils higher than average in fertility. Loess and alluvial soils in the Upper Rhine Plain. Large outputs of lumber, wood pulp. Paper and other forest derived products. Germany: Resources:  Germany: Resources Important industrial minerals: 11.4% of global production of coal. Ruhr Saxony Silesia 20.5% of world production of potash. 5.5% of the world’s crude steel. 4.9% of world aluminum. 2.0% of the world’s pyrites. Benelux Countries:  Benelux Countries Belgium + Netherlands + Luxembourg Example of making the best of small areas and small populations. High standard of living, high per capita incomes. Supranationalism: The Netherlands :  The Netherlands Natives of the Netherlands are known as the Dutch. Agricultural land of the Netherlands has been reclaimed from the sea and is called polder. Dutch farming is very intensive and highly specialized, for example tulips and other flowers. Traditionally, the Dutch have been a seafaring nation with a significant colonial empire in Southeast Asia (Indonesia). Rotterdam is the world’s largest port city in terms of tonnage handled because it serves the hinterland of the Rhine river. Rotterdam is a generative city because of the complementary relationship it has with its hinterland. Rotterdam is a break-in-bulk point for much of the Rhine traffic. Belgium:  Belgium Belgium is inhabited by Dutch speaking Flemings in the North. The southern inhabitants are French speaking Walloons. Belgium is officially bilingual. Belgium is the hub of European supranationalism. Mountain Europe: Switzerland and Austria:  Mountain Europe: Switzerland and Austria Both are landlocked countries framed by the Alps. Both capitalize on their environments as winter resort destinations for the rest of Europe and the world. While having similar environments, their historical experiences are quite different. Switzerland:  Switzerland Switzerland has been independent and pursued a policy of strict neutrality since 1815. Switzerland is the geographical center of Western Europe and straddles three streams of cultural and linguistic influence – Italian, French and German. 64% speak German, 18% speak French, 12% speak Italian and 6% speak Romansch (an ancient dialect of Latin). Population: 7,200,000; land area ½ that of Austria. Switzerland is an example of a country that has maximized a mountainous, limited resource base to produce the second highest per capita income -- $39,980 in 2000. 92% of Swiss are employed in non-agricultural pursuits, including precision mechanization and electronics, banking and finance, and tourism. Swiss farmers practice transhumance or vertical nomadism, the seasonal movement of people and animals from lowland to highland environments in search of pasture. Austria:  Austria Austria is a vestige of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Population: 8,100,000, includes southern Germans, Balkan people, Magyars and many other ethnic groups. Framed by the Danube River valley in the north and the Alps in the south. Austria is a fraction of its former size. After WW I Austria was carved into independent Hungary, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Romania. Nordic Europe :  Nordic Europe The world’s northernmost group of states: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Iceland. Poor relative location – on the way to nowhere. Except for Denmark, Norden is separated by water from the rest of Europe. Denmark and southern Sweden are part of the North European Lowland and an exception to the bleak Scandinavian rule. Climatic conditions are rather severe for most of the area. In recent years severe environmental pollution has been a problem, especially in southern Norway, which receives more acid rain than it produces via sulfur emissions. In language, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian are mutually intelligible; Icelandic belongs to the same family; Finnish is totally different. Nordic Europe: Resources:  Nordic Europe: Resources Sweden possesses 2.6% of the world’s deposits of iron ore. Norway has discovered large deposits of petroleum and natural gas in the North Sea. Geothermal energy is important in Iceland. Hydroelectric power generation is important in Norway. Forest products are important , especially for Finland and Norway. Fishing is important for Iceland Norway has a large merchant marine fleet and rich seafaring tradition. MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE:  MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE Six Countries: Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Malta, Cyprus A discontinuous region, lying on three peninsulas, two occupied singly by Greece and Italy, one shared by Spain and Portugal. Separated by mountains and water from the Western European core. Common cultural heritage dating from Greco-Roman times . Mediterranean climate – dry summer subtropical HOT - DRY SUMMERS WARM/COOL - MOIST WINTERS MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE: RESOURCES:  MEDITERRANEAN EUROPE: RESOURCES Soils in Southern Europe are generally poor. Vegetation: Maquis (macchia): Many shrubs of medium height, comparable to chaparral in the U.S. Garigue: Low vegetation less than one foot in height, frequently aromatic. Mediterranean Europe is generally deficient in mineral wealth. Only scattered deposits of coal, ,iron ore and bauxite. Italy has great hydroelectric potential. Recent gains in economic development and industrialization have been in the Po Valley (Italy); Barcelona (Spain) and around Lisbon (Portugal) and Athens (Greece).
