What is the relationship between geography and physical science?

Geography is not physics; the disciplines do have a number of touch points, but geography is evidence based, whereas physical science is based upon hypothesis and proof.

How does the earth surface absorb shorter wavelengths of sun's radiant energy and reflect back larger wavelengths as outradiation?
