    Guys can someone write a rough plan about what case studies and what points you'll need in each para for decentralisation of retailing. I'm confused whether to discuss decentralisation of inner city leading to redevelopment of inner city or to talk about out of town retail. Thanks X

    Anybody got a case study of a constructive plate boundary earthquake and could explain how a constructive plate boundary causes an earthquake?
    This is for the 40mark on the nature of seismic and volcanic events.
    Thanks!

    Predictions that i've seen the most:

    Conflicts 25 and 40 marks section will either be themed on Separatism or Multicultural society

    Ecosystems: i'm thinking tropical biome, dono what else tbh

    World Cities: Urban decline, Planning and management, Sustainability (one of those 100%)
    What could they ask about sustainability in terms of World Cities? Any ideas?

    I've checked out the spec and there doesn't seem to be anything on sustainability. It doesn't show up on my geography lesson plans that our geography teachers gave us.

    (Unless you mean like waste and transport management)

    For a 40 marker it will most likely be all of them points.

    2012 isn't on the website to be fair and in 2013 it was only the 7 mark question using a figure

    i think seeing as its been on two papers theyre more likely to ask something else (im thinking maybe urban heat islands and winds etc.) but yeah you never know

    Does a higher silica content mean that gas becomes trapped and harder to escape, thus leading to stickyness and explosivity? Sorry if I sound dumb, sciencey geography isn't my strong point.

    I feel like the 40 marker could be on weather in urban areas but I'm not sure, but yeah I think it'll be something like winds or explaining the formation of something because last year was global warming and the year before was quite case study based (in the 25m section)

    yeah the magma becomes more solidified as it rises so there is a build up in pressure as well as gas becoming trapped - leads to explosive, less frequent eruptions

    Can someone explain what convection currents are and the link to magma please?

    Convection currents happen in the mantle, heat from the core causes them. Hot material (magma) is less dense to it rises to the top and the cooler magma is less dense so it sinks. Creates a circulatory motion which caused drag on the bottom of plates, causing them to move
