    So if it said ' seismic event' you can't use tsunamis e.g You can't use the Tohuku earthquake in 2011?

    The Tohuku Earthquake is the seismic event, the tsunami was a hazard of the seismic event.

    So for example, if it said compare the effects of earthquakes due to economic development or something like that.... could you still use tohuku ?

    You can talk about the tsunami - it was a secondary impact of the earthquake, that's what you'd say

    Hey, if i just revised case studies for conflict 40 marker would that be enough?
    Also can anyone briefly sum up tsunamis?
    Any help/advice is greatly appreciated

    Thank-you ! I was worried then because two of my 5 case studies for earthquakes involve tsunami's !

    Anyone else doing the 40 marker first?

    My plan:
    5 minute plan 60 minute writing - 40 marker
    7 marker - 10 mins
    8 marker - 12 mins
    10 marker - 15 mins
    I too will be doing the essay first, its too many marks to leave it to do last and examiners report have also said people spend too much on section A and B and this affects the 40 marker

    Is everyone revising seismic activity rather than volcanic activity then? Because Volcanic impacts came up last year, plus what the chief examiner has suggested.

    I really would study your tsunami case studies, for example the 8 mark question in the June 2013 paper was 'Describe the characteristics, and explain the causes of, tsunamis.' - although this is unlikely to come up again.

    I'm skimming over volcanic activity, but yeah i'm focusing much more on seismicity

    Is it worth putting in lacoliths for minor intrusive landforms. Where dykes forces overlying rocks to be pushed upwards??

    He means plate tectonics and associated hazards, I think it's called restless Earth at GCSE so he might have got confused but idk

    I think you'd still get credited as it is an intrusive feature - I learnt about it in my school as well

    What is the best MEDC earthquake to compare to Haiti Earthquake? I want a case study has clear comparisons between a developed country and less developed... I have Japan 2011 currently, however it doesn't show very effective comparisons..
    I've done Christchurch in Newzealend as its easy to directly compare the deaths and how much better the services were!

    If it asks for characteristics of an earthquake do you talk about wave types?

    our teachers are predicting this to be the last big year on the theory side/ physical geography for tectonics and weather and climate as the new syllabus is heavily focused on the impacts and responses so it might be one last push for proper physical geography!

    Does anyone have the exam papers pre- Jan 2013? The AQA website's past papers don't go back very far
    just search the year and the paper and they just come up on google

    Hi,
    My predictions are
    Tectonics 7/8/10- Earthquakes case studies comparing nature and impacts. Causes and characteristics of earthquakes.
    Conflict 7/8/10- causes and consequences of separatism OR multicultural societies
    World Cities 40marker- Retail or causes and effects of urbanisation processes.
    What would you include in causes and effects of urbanisation processes?

    I personally think that the 40 mark essay for tectonics will be about plate tectonics theory. It seems pretty cyclical since the last four papers have been; earthquake factors, volcano factors, earthquake mitigation and volcano mitigation. So, unless they choose to repeat one, it should be plate tectonics theory, which was five papers ago.

    Also, since this is the last paper of this syllabus, I would suspect that ending it with the theory question seems logical, but I wouldn't be surprised if they put a twist on it and try to include the case studies. They haven't done that before, and so it would definitely be a 'mega question' of sorts. I think the suggestion that plate tectonics theory helps the understanding of preparing for volcanic andseismic events seems logical. I seriously doubt they would limit it to just one.

    Just my gut instinct though. If anyone else has any last minute suggestions, it would be very much appreciated!
