Rutland Reservoir

You need to know the problems of water supply in the UK (which is basically there is enough water for us all but lots falls in the north and west, whereas people mostly live in the south and east). Also you need to know about the case study of one reservoir in the UK. we look at Rutland Water for this … there is a lot of good information for this in the revision guide (here’s the page)

You could also test your knowledge with this simple but handy quick test video I found on you tube.

Also this powerpoint is a very useful one slide summary of the case study Managing the UK_s water linked to Rutland

Finally here is an exam question from 2013 higher paper you could attempt to text how well prepared you are ….

“Discuss the issues which result from building dams and reservoirs” (8 marks)

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.
