    What did everyone get for the 8 markers on oceans on the edge and river processes because I put about the three gorges dam and the Colorado dam for the river processes, is that ok because they are both hard engineering
    I thought the six marker was about flood management schemes and why some are more successful than others so it didn't necessarily need to be about hard engineering, could've been soft engineering. I talked about levees and dams.

    That water back to oceans question was terrible.
    I wrote about surface runoff and then couldn't think of another one so I literally wrote about precipitation above the sea...

    But the rest could have been worse.
    Same! I didn't know what else to say so I said precipitation as one and surface run off as the other

    Overall it went well but the two 8 markers for rivers and extreme environments were quite tricky, wrote anything I came up with lol
    What did you put for both the 8 markers?

    Glad I'm not the only one! I mean it does make sense, clouds are part of the hydrological cycle, and it it rains into the sea... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The content is fairly easy, in my opinion the hardest thing is interpreting the questions as they can be really vague

    I talked about dams and washlands etc for the flood manangement question but I didnt refer to any case studies, I didn't know any do you think I will lose marks? but it said examine i think and i don't feel like i did that. for the extreme environments we told our teacher what the 8 marker was and she even though that it was a tricky question! i wrote about how in cold regions ike greenland ice will melt and sea temperature will rise causing fish to migrate and so people lose income as they can't sell fish haha and i said for places like the sahel temperature will cause crop failure etc. I literally made it up on the go hope it will get marks

    I also did't refer to case studies in the river processes eight marker and I talked about levees and dams and how their success relies upon what type of weather system that country experiences. For extreme environments, I talked about how climate change causes more fish to die and local cultures could be ruined.

    I put that. That was so vague, though - the dotted line ran through the middle of the river, and of course deposition wouldn't happen so much there, but it was 'process' so wasn't a meander and i think erosion would have been too off-topic

    I said this the lighter continental plate subducts under the denser oceanic plate this melts allow magma to rise. At the detructive plate boundary composite volcanos are formed.
    I said UNCLOS is pollution and marpol is oil pollution

    oceanic plate is subducted under continental, not the other way round.
