Physio-Géo resumes the work of a journal created in the early 1980s by the URA 141 of the CNRS (Paris). The journal is devoted to research in all domains of physical geography (climatology, hydrology, geomorphology, biogeography, etc), with a special interest in environmental problems but also in research into the environment totally unrelated to physical geography. Physio-Géo hopes to offer the French-speaking academic community a general-interest, open-access journal in physical geography, which is also open to problems of the environment. For its launch on Revues.org, Physio-Géo presents its first three volumes in full text. The journal is published yearly, but articles are regularly added throughout the year.
