I wasn't trying to sound scathing I just think you would be better trying to learn everything, the SQA are aware of their own patterns and may choose to throw something weird in there.
It's okay you didn't And you let me learn a new word today

In a nut shell -

A stack is formed when the back wall of two caves breakthrough (hydraulic action, attrition). This then forms an arc; continued erosion and weathering of the arch causes the roof to collapse, leaving behind a column of rock standing solo away from the headland. Known, as a stack.

Does this help anyone?

Abrasion, pounding and hydraulic action of waves attacks lines of weakness such as faultlines/joints which allows a faster erosion rate that steadily creates caves. Further erosion of a vertical joint at the back of a sea-cave may mean the collapse of it's roof creating a blow-hole (funnel-shaped depression, linking the cliff top and sea-cave. When strong waves surge into the cave, air is compressed and columns of spray are forced upwards through the funnel). With continued erosion the cave is cut right through as it is widened and deepened to form a natural arch for example Durdle Door in Dorset or Bow Fiddle, Portknockie. As wave action enlarges the arch, it will eventually collapse as the roof becomes too heavy and unsupported leaving an isolated pinnacle of rock called a stack for example Old Harry. Further erosion makes it undercut and wave-cut notches develop, foundations weaken resulting in a Stump eg. Old Harry's Wife. (draw diagram) And if you're really keen, mention Geos.

Uhuh:yep: It's mostly the ones on oceanic/atmoshperic circulation, and global heat budget that i find really hard to explain.... I can do the ITCZ though :woo:

Does anyone else really hope that Psammosere comes up instead of Soils for the Biosphere part of the paper?

I'm praying industry is in the optional section. I love every other topic...I just find industry so dull.

I think it will also. Biosphere is one of my strongest areas so I'm not too fussed what comes up. I find soils slightly easier though

Lithosphere - Coastal features
Urban - changes in an inner city or cbd area
Population - Migration or population pyramids

Optional
Atmosphere- ICTZ, global circulation cells ( hadley etc)
Hydrosphere - hydrological cycle
Industry - reasons why they locate in area you studied
Rural - explain shifting cultivation or intensive peasant

Development and Health
RLR - glaciation - loch lomond

Pretty much my idea of a nightmare paper! :eek3:

I reckon this would be my ideal paper....
Compulsory;
-Biosphere - Psammosere
-Hydrosphere - Describe river valley from a map and explain waterfall formation
-Rural - Shifting Cultivation
-Urban -Site+Situation and Traffic Management schemes

Optional;
Atmosphere- ITCZ
Lithosphere - Glaciation
Population - Problems with an ageing population
Industry - Old industrial location factors

RLR- Limestone and Environmental conflicts
D+H- Malaria(20> marks), Differences between/within countries.

Also; i was looking up the last six years of papers, and on the population questions, five out of the six of them have been asking about the consequences of an ageing population.... Wonder what the chances are of getting that again this year? *fingers crossed* :yep:
