1)Urbanization is the physical growth of urban areas as a result of global change
2)Urbanization is closely linked to modernization, industrialization, and the sociological process of rationalization.
3) growth is especially commonplace in developing countries
4)The United States and United Kingdom have a far higher urbanization level than China, India, Swaziland or Niger,
5)relation among places of different sizes is called the urban hierarchy.
6)The urban heat island is formed when industrial and urban areas are developed and heat becomes more abundant
7)When the residential area shifts outward, this is called suburbanization.
8)New Urbanism is a movement in urban planning that began in the 1990s
9)Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years
10)Factors that can shape climate are climate forcings.
11)The sun is the predominant source for energy input to the Earth.
12)Volcanism is a process of conveying material from the crust and mantle of the Earth to its surface.
13)Short-term fluctuations in oceans arecalled as the El Niño–Southern Oscillation,
14)Glaciers are among the most sensitive indicators of climate change,
15)Continental drift is the movement of the Earth's continents relative to each other.

22)The greenhouse effect is the process by which absorption and emission of infrared radiation by gases in the atmosphere warm a planet's lower atmosphere and surface
23)alterations to ocean processes such as thermohaline circulation play a key role in redistributing heat by carrying out a very slow and extremely deep movement of water, and the long-term redistribution of heat in the world's oceans.
24)Volcanic eruptions, geysers, and hot springs, are examples of volcanic processes
25)anthrapogenic climatic change is termed as global warming
