Useful supervolcano video

This is good on the global effects of super volcanoes. Look at how they talk about the ash cloud effects on the other slide of the world from one of these eruptions. Also how one effect (ash) can lead to another (no sunlight) to another (temperature drop) to another (crop failure) to another (starvation) and even on to civilisation collapse……

Revising the Kobe Earthquake?

kobe

We went through this quite quickly in class this week. So if you are a bit worried you didn’t get all the information and ideas here is the ever excellent cool geography website with EVERYTHING you need … the page is very clearly divided into causes effects and response. Just remember in our exam you need to compare this quake in a richer part of the world (MEDC) with one in a poorer part of the world (LEDC) We of course studied Nepal … Click here for the info you need on that.

Nepal Earthquake

nepal map

The Nepal earthquake of 2015 was an awful event. If you study it as a case study, it will help you in both the Development Gap and Restless Earth topics:

For Development gap it is a case study of how a natural event or natural disaster can restrict development in a country. so you would look at the short and long term effects and say how that would slow down Nepal becoming more developed

For Restless Earth, you need to know about the causes, effects (short and long term) and responses (short and long term again) to the quake

I have put ALL the resources you could possibly need on one simple padlet page
