for the ocr geoggers - what do we need to know for depression and anti-cyclone? can someone type out the main points i need to know for them?
I don't do OCR but am doing A2 EDEXCEL Geography and both depressions and anti-cyclones are on the syllabus. I'd say you need to know the formation (e.g. the two airmasses that form a depression, Pm and Tm), the features (e.g anti-cyclone is high pressure so very stable), the weather they bring and the affects. Also the differences between summer and winter anti-cyclones as well as interraction between the two (e.g. anti-cyclones over central Europe push depressions north wards changing their usual path).

International Migration case studies include:

Turkey to Germany - At end of WW2 Germany used turkish workers to fill gaps in employment, however in times of depression many Germans resented 'their' jobs being filled by Turkish workers. Fall of Berlin wall resulted in cheap labour from East Germany flooding in diluting the need for the Turkisk workers.
Mexico to USA - pretty straight forward.
North Africa to France - former colonial links/rulership (some still exist) and same languages have led to a pretty consistent flow.
West Indies to UK - After WW2 in order to help boost the population there was an influx of people from the Carribean to Britain.

The plates diverge leaving a gap which the magma surges up through to form volcanoes

I can't believ my willpower stood it. I've actually been revising! Well, most days anyway! Geog and Bio in the next 2 days though I'm sure it'll all be ok. And yep, 69, that's how many our teacher gave us over the year. Now, now matter what question comes up, I'll have a case study for it
69! that's crazy. :eek: the most i've ever learned for any geography exam is 6. that way, i can learn those in-depth, and they usually cross over into several mini-topics.

Don't worry about other people having learnt 69 or whatever, I learnt about 10 max last year in any real detail, others are only really needed to back up ideas or to add to an extended piece of writing. For instance if writing about a topic and you say "Another scheme used in X...." etc you show that you have a wider range of knowledge without having to necessarily go into detail. Served me ok last year anyway.

I'm doing OCR too for tomorrow. I'm not sure whether we have to learn about granite scenery or not as I cant remember doing it in class.

Also what case studies are there for weater phenomena? I've revised Los Angeles temperature inversion and thats it.

Ok. Do we have to learn characteristics of air mases over Britain in detail and formation of depressions?

Also when is lava more viscous?

ok cheers for the help. Probably do about a hour more revision tonight and a bit more tomorrow morning on case studies. I've got about 15 case studies to patch up my memory on and learn some of the important facts.

edexcel geog 2moro...cant remember which spec, but i did the applied skills paper. lol ive only learned a few case studies and they are mainly human, they tend to ask fewer physical case study questions

The more silica the lava has in it the more viscous it is, and the lava tends to b more viscous in the more violent volcanoes at destructive plate margins. hope that helps
