    after months of predicting, here are mine:
    World cities 40 mark- Sustainability, retail and maybe planning and management although retail is more likely as it has only been up once as a 40 marker in 2012 I think. (urban processes would also be linked in these essays)
    Development and globalisation - 8 mark LLEDCs, TNCs, growth of NICS, development continuum, growth of groupings of nations.
    10 marker- sustainable tourism myth or reality, impacts of TNCS on host country and country of origin, impacts of groupings of nations, impacts of NICs.
    40 marker- maybe LLEDCs.
    Plate tectonics 8 marker- earthquakes, tsunamis, seismic waves, how seismic waves are measured,
    10 marker- how seismic hazards are managed (PPP), intrusive landforms and extrusive landforms.
    Any questions feel free to ask!

    Plates basically form the whole of the crust, but they also incorporate the upper part of the semi-molten magma just below the surface. So crust is just the outermost layer of the earth. But plates also include the upper mantle, so you'd call this the lithosphere, which is split into sections of 7 large and several smaller plates that move above the more fluid mantle below

    do the plates flow on the molten asthenosphere or lithosphere

    The only possible tectonics 40 marker i can think of would be plate theory or earthquakes and tsuamis cannot really see it being volcanoes again

    Lithosphere is the crust / rigid part of the upper mantle, asthenosphere is the rest of the mantle below, so the plates flow on the asthenosphere

    Magma plume. Basically radioactive elements from deep in the mantle rise up to the surface as a plume of magma. So yeah magma plume is right, and this plume just rises up through the mantle before breaking through the surface

    Does anyone have any good World Cities retailing case studies?
    Also in the past question 'urbanisation in both the developing and the developed world is unsustainable (40 marks) - would I be okay to refer to suburbanisation and counter-urbanisation in developed nations (referring to issues with inner city decline etc), or is this question only referring to the movement of people INTO urban areas? Thank you.

    Would that be the decentralisation of retailing!

    Something about the problems they face and whether they can solve them on their own or with assistance from other countries- a debate between the two!i think this essay would be amazing!

    Kobe: 1995
    Facts:
    magnitude 7.2
    depth of focus = 16km
    time of day = 5:54 am - this is significant
    cause: philippines plate subducting beneath the eurasian plate - complex setting of Japan's landmass meant the fault line wasn't previously discovered
    GNI at the time = $3.5 trillion
    population size = 1.9 million people

    Impacts:
    5502 deaths.
    300,000 homeless.
    4900/5502 deaths were in residential areas where only 7% of people had earthquake insurance - the earthquake was in the early morning where majority were asleep and so in their homes.
    26 sections of hanshin expressway road toppled over - few deaths here due to it being early morning where less would have been on the road - potential for more economic impacts and death should the earthquake had occurred during the day.
    $114 billion of damage.
    liquefaction at the port resulted in flooding - the port was built on reclaimed land which was already saturated and so liquefaction was an expected secondary hazard.

    Responses:
    did not need any international aid
    search and rescue teams sent out immediately
    the hanshin expressway was rebuilt
    updated building codes so that more houses had shock obsorbers and built with steel frames (which have a higher strain limit) and carbon fibres which can absorb energy of the earthquake released
    by law, all the gas stations now need to stock have emergency supplies and aid
    port rebuilt after one year

    Speed of recovery:
    most of Kobe back in recovery after 6 months

    a problem faced is HIV/AIDS- sub saharan Africa. richer countires provided help by the Global fund, eg providing condoms to stop the spread etc. However, this can all be prevented if the right education was put in the country in the first place. BUT, perhaps this problem needs help from richer countries, eg the medical assistance to physically stop it, but the right education needs to be introduced to stop the stigma etc
