Identify one process that occurs only at destructive plate boundaries
C) Subduction
1 of 11
Suggest one way that hazard management strategies may have affected the earthquake impacts in japan
*1* hazard adaptations used -such as quake proof buildings. *2* builidings are able to withold more, prevents builidings from being completlely destroyed
2 of 11
Explain two secondary hazards caused by earthquakes
*1* Ruptured utility lines- no electricty, fires are likely to start. *2* builidngs can crumble or collapse, can trap people inside and bury streets in rubble
3 of 11
Explain the tectonic hazards which may result from volcanic activity
*1* pyroclastic flow- exploding molten lava includig glass and ash. *2* tephra- rock fragments causing roofs to collapse and fires to start. *3* lava flows- fast running molten magma. *4* volcanic gases- ash clouds can suffocate.
4 of 11
State one factor that affects coastal sediment transport.
the size of the sediment
5 of 11
Suggest one reason why the wave frequency at the two locations differ.
*1* higher wave frequency of 16. *2* fetch of 4500km+ fetch of only 190km. *3* travelled a long distance.
6 of 11
Explain two coastal depositional processes.
*1* gravity settling- low energy large sediment is dropped before smaller sediment and settles. *2* fluccuation- small particles clump togther due to electrical or chemical reactions and they become large enough to sink.
7 of 11
Explain factors that create an erosional coastline.
*1* Wave type- destructive erodes away coastline, constructive builds up coastline. *2* wave energy- stronger fetch = more erosion, *3* rock type- less resistant rock= more easily eroded. *4*= sub-arieral weathering. *5* human interferance- builiding
8 of 11
suggest reasons for the realtionship between proportion of vacant land and distance from the CBD of detriot
*1* inner city decline- deteriation of the inner city- lack of investment and maintenance. *2* decline in population numbers, decreasing economic performance and unemployment *3* poor image of inner city
9 of 11
Explain why different groups would have contrasting opinions about regernertiong vacant land in cities.
*1*different players. different opinions. buisness man- benefical to regenerate as money is spent within the city- beenfits him. *2* person associated with greenpeace- wrong to regenerate vacant land- could harm enviroment.
10 of 11
Explain why different groups would have contrasting opinions about regernertiong vacant land in cities. CONT
*3* local people- if regenerated could, could become congested and overcroweded. increased house and land prices. more co2 emissions.
