Without some explanation before hand, I don't think this text makes much sense. I've removed it to make the page a bit simpler, maybe it could be put back with further explanation?
Because orography is spatially averaged, for example the height of the [[Himalaya]] mountains will depend on horizontal [[Image resolution|resolution]]. The higher the horizontal resolution, the better the orography will follow the actual terrain.<ref>[http://amsglossary.allenpress.com/glossary/search?p=1&query=Orography&submit=Search Orography] (from the [[American Meteorological Society]] website)</ref>
Hi, I'm confused that orography is defined in the first sentence as "the study of...." when the article continues to say the orography of East Africe affects the monsoon. I'm not sure that the amount of studying you do can affect a physical process...? Does the word mean "the study of" or is it describing the actual lay of the land?
