    Never mind, you can now be a guru for the A/S and A2 students!
    Cant remember a thing from A level! except how to colour in the lines as my geo teacher always said. :rolleyes: Im doing volcanology and environmental hazards so I spose I could answer questions on that! The rest of my degree doesnt really belong anywhere. To save hijacking the thread ill add:

    Relief Web - Great place if your building up certain natural disaster case studies

    and this on volcanoes Volcano World

    Oh and if people if you ever get a chance to go to Iceland (the country not the supermarket) go, tis AMAZING end of plug

    What level of detail do you need? I've got stuff on Opportunities and Threats in NICs but it's not specific to one NIC
    I need one specific to one of the 4 asian tigers really. Don't worry, I'll have a look in my textbooks

    It's Acrobat 6, shouldn't be a problem. Do you want me to try again?
    I've just got it to work. Had to ask it to 'save' when I downloaded it rather than 'open'. Silly Ellie. Thanks very much Geogger!

    Really good river stuff I found, the http://www.sciencecourseware.com/ site may have more gems but I haven't looked at the other areas.

    Explains virtuals in rivers, the 6/10ths rule, really VITAL for river study coursework
    If you want to skip the over-interactivity of having to do simple calculations, type in the url that shows up when you hover over the next button to skip being checked.
