Chapter 10 Part 3

Agriculture and Rural Land Use

Deforestation the clearing and destruction of forests to harvest wood for consumption, clear land for agricultural uses, and make way for expanding settlement frontiers
Mining and Quarrying provide us with the raw materials that are necessary for a modern society (metallic, nonmetallic, and mineral fuels)
Metallic and Nonmetallic Minerals Metallic minerals are used for Iron and nonmetallic minerals are used for building stones.
Mineral Fuels hydrocarbons, primarily coal, fuel oil, or natural gas formed from the remains of dead plants and animals
Petroleum a mixture of hydrocarbons found in certain rocks that can be used in the making of fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, and diesel oil
Rural Settlements sparsely settled places away from the influence of large cities. Typically have an agricultural character, with an economy based on logging, mining, petroleum, natural gas, or tourism
Rural Settlement Types Clustered: a rural settlement in which the houses and farm buildings of each family are situated close to each other and fields surround the settlement Dispersed: a rural settlement pattern characterized by isolated farms rather than clustered villages
Land Survey Patterns Survey of major patterns of physical features, culture, and human-land relations
Economic System Mixed: incorporates mixture of private and government ownership/control Planned: central government determines price of goods and services, controls the factors of production, and makes all decisions about their use and about the distribution of income
