  • We are all explorers. Even as tiny children we search out the limits of our world. A few years on, our imagination stretches further: fingers batting at a giddy plastic globe … a spinning top, gaudy with colour, representing perhaps the most ambitious idea possible, the world. Geography is a fundamental fascination. It is also a core component of a good education. Yet a lot of people are not too sure what it is. They stumble over the question ‘What is geography?’ Perhaps they are worried by the scale and the implications of the obvious answer. For geography is about the world.

  • Mitigation of Multipath E€ects We have seen in Chapters 4 and 5 that buildings and other obstacles in built-up areas act as scatterers of the signal, and because of the interaction between the various incoming component waves, the resultant signal at the mobile antenna is subject to rapid and deep fading. The fading is most severe in heavily built-up areas such as city centres, and the signal envelope often follows a Rayleigh distribution over short distances in these heavily cluttered regions.

  • There is a global trend of falling household sizes over time, though an international comparison quickly reveals that this reduction is not uniform across countries. Apart from tradition, economic variables are influential in determining how many people live together in one household. We have tried to capture this relationship with a pooled cross-section of 38 countries and data for different years between 1960 and 2006. The dependent variable is the average household size.

  • The urban-rural meta-narrative seems likely to have a generally positive impact on these D-P types, as they are net gainers in terms of population and economic activity, due both to counter-urbanisation and in-migration from remoter regions.
