GEOB102 Geographical Sciences

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: This is a Learn by Doing Exercise. The accompanying lecture material begins on Mon, Week 8 and will continue through Wed, Week 9. Information on climates was introduced in lecture Friday Week 7, and students were asked to review slides (and mP3 audio-file) about specific climate types and read the corresponding information in their text chapter on world climates.

Begin working through the questions after carefully reading the handout and viewing the accompanying figures. Refer to sections of Arbogast Chapter 10or a comparable source (Strahler and Archibold; Christopherson et al., chapters on soils) and your lectures over the next 2 weeks to assist in finding answers. Ensure you have read these materials and attempted questions BEFORE asking your TA questions. Lab sessions this week and next are there to answer any questions that arise as you work through this exercise on your own. Thus, TA’s are simply providing office hours. You may go to additional lab sessions if you need to speak with a TA outside of your regularly scheduled lab session.



This lab is an introduction to global distributions of soil, internal processes to soils, and relationships with precipitation, temperature and vegetation. We will be learning more about the nature of vegetation types in a few weeks, but for now, you may wish to glance ahead in your text (Chap 9or comparable source (Strahler and Archibold; Christopherson et al.) for the section on “Biomes”.


Carefully examine the color figures in the Lab 3 folder that accompany this document, noting relationships between certain kinds of soils and vegetation or climates (precipitation and temperature).

Figure 1: a) Soil Regions of Canada, b) Global Soil Regions (Canadian Soil order equivalents, if available, are listed next to the U.S. names – use these unless there is No Canadian Equivalent).

Figure 2: Global Vegetation Type. a) Canadian Terrestrial Ecozones; b) World Biomes

Figure 3: Average Annual Precipitation

Figure 4: Average Annual Temperatures

Finally, once you have decided on a particular soil order, you may wish to hear UBC soil scientists discuss these in the tutorial at:   I recommend listening to the one about Podzols (because they are so common under forests around Vancouver)
