    Do you think it is useful to have a few facts about a range of case studies, like use Japan for an MEDC showing the capacity to cope, then one like l'aquilla which showed poor infrastructure didn't it ? I am not sure as i have not studied that example though ? Or will just two case studies for each be enough to get high marks in the essay. I am kind of hoping for a plate tectonics theory essay now!
    yeh! i have a variety of facts from other case studies aswell (but its up to you whether you wanna learn more facts and stuff)

    l'quilla didn't really have poor infrastructure but in a way it did... it had management strategies such as strict building regulations to ensure that newer buildings were designed and build to with standard earthquakes BUT some of these were poorly built so were severely damaged or destroyed.

    yehh i would love a plate tectonic theory essay aswell but the only thing ill struggle with, is how to gain synopotic marks from that kinda of essay

    Yeah that is what I am going to do too i think, how would you get synoptic marks from that essay ? The reason I want it is because you can basically just learn the essay beforehand and it is so easy to structure it in a chronological way as the evidence was collected. I wouldn't mind the significance of human factors in the impact of hazards.

    I have no clue... that's what ill struggle the most with too be honest (synoptic marks from an essay question on the theory of plate tectonics) but this is what was public by the examiners report for the June 12 paper which was on plate tectonic theory :

    'Synopticity was a challenge for some – examiners were looking for some aspects of complexity regarding the evidence of plate tectonic theory, such as different types of sources, and changes over time. Or, they were looking for other factors that might be
    the cause of volcanic/seismic events, such as water bodies, or ‘fracking’, or factors which may influence their distribution, for example geological (fault structures)or distance from origin'

    I wouldn't mind managment of impacts :P the only thing i wont like, is the impacts and repsonses between contrasting case studies or like landorms or w/e ...

    If plates theory were to come up what sort of thing would it be like or relate to? Surely not just like..."how does the theory of plate tectonics help your understanding..."?
