    could anyone suggest a type of diagram to help explain the interactions between us and the natural procceses leading to a hazard. I was thinking some sort of flow diagram but have heard people talking about venn diagrams? Any help would be good!!

    yeh there is one that i think was by Dregg, 1992 which has a venn diagram with geophysical processes on one circle and human vulnerability on the other with the cross-over bit shaded in as the diaster. Then if the geophycal processes are made more intense e.g. by a higher magnitude, larger area extent or longer duration, it overlaps more and causes a larger disaster but it can occur the other way round with the human vulnerability being made higher overaping and also causing a larger disaster. Anyhow, the main thing that it shows is that the disaster has to be a combination of both human and geophysical processes.

    that ones quite useful as its really simple and quick to draw in the exam. Hope it helped! xx

    Would you be able to post what these are like? Or are they the usual cause diagrams?
