processes of transportation, access to and availability of resources and economic activities affect these patterns.

In Iceland they have learned to take advantage of the island's geology to produce geothermal energy.
The climate in southern France is ideal to grow grapes that are used in famous French wines.
How have physical characteristics of Europe and Northern Eurasia affected settlement patterns? Why do people live where they live?
Brainstorm a list of physical characteristics that can affect where people live. How does the physical geography affect human settlement?

Areas with extreme climates, such as Siberia have very low population densities.
The Ural Mountains have hindered/limited trade and transportation throughout the region.
How does the population west of the Ural Mountains compare to the population east of the Ural Mountains?
