Tectonic activity and hazards: earthquakes
Looking at Tectonic activity and hazards: earthquakes, this up-to-date resource presents a challenging approach to the earthquake option of the synoptic research unit for A level geography.
The PowerPoint presentation builds on contemporary LEDC and MEDC case studies: the Haiti earthquake (2010) and Japan's Tohuku Earthquake and Tsunami (2011).
A-level geography and aid
The case studies from Haiti and Japan guide the student through:
- the research and writing process
- illustrating effects
- impacts and development
- the use of technological innovations following disasters, such as GIS and ‘crowd sourcing’
- global policy.
Issues around prediction are looked at through exploring Van, Turkey (2011) and L’Aquila, Italy (2009).
