Video to help you revise the Alps (Case study of young fold mountains)

For the Restless Earth topic you need to know a case study of a range of young fold mountains. We studied The Alps. Here is what the syllabus asks you to learn

  1. How humans use them (farming, mining, forestry, Dams and HEP and tourism)
  2. How people have adapted to the conditions (steep relief, poor soils, poor communications)
  3. How they are formed

This video is of a motorbike journey through the Alps and doesn’t cover number 3, but look at the background scenery and the roads to see examples of 1 and 2
