Abstract : At the present time, Soviet physical goegraphy shows a condition from general, comparatively cursory descriptions of extensive areas to a more fundamental thorough study of small sections of territory of Russia with a detailed analysis of the correlations in their development and mapping. The geologic structure and relief determine greatly the area distribution of large geographic units (for example, provinces, geographic zones). Of still greater importance is the study of the specific features of the geologic structure and relief and detailed geographic studies which are accompanied by more detailed demarcation, that is, in landscape studies proper. These components of the landscape exert a deep influence on local relationships of heat and moisture and predetermine to a considerable degree the area disposition of the boundaries, the morphologic composition and structure of the landscape itself as well as its components.
