    Ok, what are the best examples for use of re-urbanisation? Could you use london docklands and gentrification etc??

    Also causes and impacts of de centralisation has not come up since 2009 (new spec)

    I agree - either this or urban microclimates for the W&C 40 marker. Microclimates hasn't come up in a long time, that'd be personally the one I'd want to do, purely due to the opportunities for synoptic analysis comparing cities, developed, not developed, different geographical locations etc
    can you write out just a brief few sentences showing how you would synopticise it. The microclimates.

    I agree with you on the Climate and the 40 mark tectonics question, but i think it will have a greater emphasis on EQs as A case study isnt required for Tsunamis, only understanding of formation and Prediction and Building techniques.

    I literally cannot remember any figures for the case studies like I'm fine with newbury bypass and London docklands case studies but for hazards I can't remember anything

    I'm really sorry- I have done nowhere near enough revision so cannot bring myself to read all 78 pages but what would your predictions be for:

    7,8, 10 - Tectonics and World Cities
    40- Ecosystems

    Please! A couple of options is great as well, doesn't need to be specific! Cheers in advance

    Don't really have time, but basically what you're going for could be talking about LA, the extreme heat island we see there compared to a city like Barcelona. LA sits in a valley, it's also experienced urban sprawl, thus has a very wide distribution of industry + albedo effect of such a large amount of urban area. Air can't escape the valley, and the ocean has a higher heat capacity so takes longer to heat up, potentially explaining why temperature is so different on the outskirts compared to the inner city.

    Then just go and discuss suburbs more, and you could talk about the effects of valley on wind etc.

    Essentially what I've been taught is that for the 40 markers you've got to show 'flair', and an ability to discuss a number of factors that relate to different aspects of geography, and demonstrate a proper geographical thought process throughout, so why this happens, what effects it has, how it could differ elsewhere etc

    anyone else necking back an energy drink planning on an all nighter tonight? i know its probably not a good idea but i had psychology unit 3 today which is probably just as content heavy so i'm having to dedicate all of tonight and tomorrow morning to geography

    also any predictions for the short answer tectonics/development and the 40 marker for world cities would be amazing!!

    Hey guys,
    Could somebody put up an answer to the question; describe and explain the futures of a world city for 10m
    It's very likely to come up tomorrow

    if there was an 8 marker on landforms associated with tectonic activity, would it ask you to describe the formation of a few of them or just 1 because i dont know enough detail on just one?

    World cities
    7 - figure on urbanisation
    8 - shanty towns
    10 - sustainable communities OR partnership scheme successes
