    I'm also doing restless earth. In the past papers I've looked through I've seen very few tsunami questions so probably best you have case studies for LEDC and MEDC tsunamis. However try to remember all of them. I've found as long as you use the name of the case study even if you've forgotten stats about it you should be fine getting the marks. One thing that's a given with the restless earth paper is that they will ask how earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, tropical storms, fold mountains or wildfires occur so try and remember these in enough detail to get full marks on the 6 or 8 marks questions. Personally I revise with mind maps talking about the natural hazard, how it forms, effects, responses and case studies, but everyone's revision techniques are different.

    Good Luck!

    A lot of this infromation is incorrect.
    Firstly, there was a tsunami question in last years paper
    Furthermore, how tropical storms and wildfires form is not required for the restless earth.

    true!

    any predictons on the changing urban envionments? they all seem to be focused on the sustainable living thme, are there any other case studis i should know for this sub-unit?

    thhanks,

    i think- for restlss earth- earthuake and volcano are the most likeliest casestuy, but not so sure about the water and the rocks though, any advice would be appreciated!

    I must not have seen this question then. I've had both of these question in mock paper previously? Ignore my comment as it turns out I'm doing Specification B.

    Our teacher thinks that TRS may come up, as it hasn't been asked in much detail yet, especially the differences in effects of a TRS in a poor country vs a rich country. Temperature deciduous forests also looks likely
