Can't seem to find a specific cold environments thread so I'll make this
We can discuss tips and possible case studies here. I'm thinking of using Antartica, the Arctic, Lake District, Ireland and possibly the Alps. I'm also thinking of including some random glaciers found around the world. What's everyone else thinking of doing?

What did everyone think of the pre-release?

erinonconnor what questions do you think can come up? from what iv seen normally the actual exam question is simply reworded pre release. has your teacher given you any sort of possible questions they can ask? do you think they can possibly ask us just geomorphological processes or JUST climatic? same goes for glacial and perglacial environments

Hi,

my teacher reckons that the question will be about assessing the different roles by both climatic and geomorphological processes

Anyone else?

Bit confused as to how to revise... im just revising definitions, the different processes and methodology?

do you think they can ask us something specific like JUST periglacial or JUST glacial enviroments? so you think the question will be reworded pre release. so the whole thing?

I'm not sure.. I'm revising for the whole thing but also enough that if just periglacial comes up then i can explain that perfectly also..

did your teachers say anything regarding that? was the general feeling that the whole thing will come up so we only pick out the most significant points.

No but I very much doubt that there will be a question on just periglaciation, etc... I've learnt all the significant points of different climatic processes, different geomorphological processes and case studies for different locations

Are you going to use sub conclusions in your reports? My teacher said its not necessary if you stay focused on the question but "ongoing evaluation" is specifically listed in the marksheme for 12-15 marks in conclusions and evaluation section
So confused

Yes but only because this is the way that I've been taught to do it...

my teacher said they'd probably use 'assess...', 'explain...' or 'discuss....' and then the pre release worded slightly differently. he also said that living and working are really important as they come up in both the explore and research sections

My teacher is saying we should still do a map in the intro! But i'm struggling to see how it would be relevant with living and working

Relict areas include Snowdonia, Wales Living: part of an MEDC (Wales) so living standards are high with infrastructure and services available. However, a lack of youth opportunities means the area suffers from an increasing amount of 'Brain Drain' (youth migration). Also there's is a high percentage of second home owners perhaps because the area isn't seen as thriving so older people choose to visit here instide of places with active processes (I.e skiing where younger, fitter people are likely to be)Working: Being part of a relict environment means ice is no longer present and so resources have been available for extraction for many years. This means there is less of an opportunity to focuse on oil and gas exploitation as stores are mostly depleted. Adding to this - tourism has decline in the area by a million visitors per year since 2012 (maybe this is because the area isn't active anymore so seen as less excited to visit as an active alpine area where skiing/ mountain biking/ climbing is available). Finally, due to depleting resources and a declining tourist industry- locals are forced to rely on subsistent farming which isn't what you'd expect from a region part of an MEDC (the U.K.) Hope this helps!
