IB Geography: Systems Approach

  1. 1. Systems Approach
  2. 2. Systems
  3. 3. Systems Any set of interrelated components or objects which are connected together to form a working unit or unified whole. In geography it is usual to recognise two general types of systems: closed and open.
  4. 4. Closed Systems
  5. 5. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings.
  6. 6. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings.
  7. 7. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings.
  8. 8. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings. Inputs, Stores, Processes, Outputs
  9. 9. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings. ENERGY Inputs, Stores, Processes, Outputs
  10. 10. Closed Systems There is transfer of energy, but not matter, between the system and its surroundings. ENERGY ENERGY Inputs, Stores, Processes, Outputs
  11. 11. Open Systems
  12. 12. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones.
  13. 13. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones.
  14. 14. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones.
  15. 15. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones. Stores, Processes
  16. 16. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones. Stores, Processes Inputs
  17. 17. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones. Stores, Processes Inputs Outputs
  18. 18. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones. ENERGY Stores, Processes Inputs Outputs
  19. 19. Open Systems Where systems receive inputs and transfer outputs of energy and/or matter across the boundaries between them. Most natural systems are open ones. ENERGY ENERGY Stores, Processes Inputs Outputs
