    what are cuadrilla doing to mitigate effects of
    1-truck movements
    2-flaring
    3-the treatment of waste fluids from fracking
    4-noise pollution
    5- drilling?

    Apparently this is a very likely question!
    Also how are the farmers/landowners getting paid if cuadrilla frack on their land?

    Thanks! Answers to these would be extremely helpful

    I know this may sound stupid but what is the link between the Fylde and the Ryedale fracking site? I know the Ryedale site has been given the go ahead but is the Fylde site still undergoing its appeal after its proposal was rejected?

    Someone told me this is supposedly this easy exam so i've only just started revision for this now and there seems to be so much :/ What skills and knowledge do we need for this exam? I've already done some work in class so I'm not completely in the dark but I didn't expect there to be as much as there is… any advice on how to and what to revise would be greatly appreciated, thanks

    Does anyone know what you could specifically write for the question: "Discuss how the physical and social geography of Lancashire makes this an ideal location to undertake fracking."

    I've read the mark scheme but it offers nothing specific to the area and i'm struggling to find any research on the internet, particularly for the social aspect.

    Does anyone have an idea of facts or statistics that may be relevent?

    There's a large section on page 13 of the pre-released material on this.

    truck movements (caused the recent proposal rejection): they will build a 428m long access track to the well site - this will reduce traffic in the town centre and prevent the over use of unsuitable roads

    treatment of waste fluids: liquids will be stored in temporarily on site an then processed and either removed for disposal (however unsure on methods) or are reused in the fracking process - no waste will be left untreated on the site so to prevent leakage into the soil/water table. They will also test the quality of the groundwater before/during and after fracking to monitor its effects

    noise pollution: this is harder to combat.

    drilling: they will install 88 seismometers to monitor any unusual seismic activity

    I'm not sure on the rest but here's a start

    I am particularly confused about flaring. What is it and what are cuadrilla doing to stop it?

    So for physical geography I think I would refer to figure P5 and explain how Lancashire is in the purple area ('both units perspective') showing that is has a good potential for lots of gas to be available. I would also talk about what you can see from the OS map - e.g. both proposed sites have motorways/a roads relatively near as well as them being rural areas - this could be linked to social by saying how fewer people will be impacted.

    You could also talk about how the Fylde isn't a SSSI - a Telegraph Article from 2015 outlined that currently 6% of the proposed fracking sites in the UK are SSSI.

    This is only how I would approach it though and there are probably loads of points i've missed!

    prior to the exam do you need to be able to recount facts and statistics or does all your information just come from the AIB?
    Thank you in advance

    I think it is just showing that fracking may become an option? The more sites that get approved, the more likely it is that Fylde will be approved? I may be wrong but that's how I had interpreted the link.

    Do we get given another Pre-Release Booklet when we are in the exam or do we take the one we were given in? Because our teacher told us to make notes on the one we were given...
    You get given a new one that is blank - no notes

    Hi, what could they ask in a fieldwork question and does anyone have any notes? Would be a massive help as we ran out of time in our class and have to do it on our own (and the exam is in 2 days..) Thanks a lot

    One of the questions that we did in a mock paper in school included the question:
    'Your A-level geography group has been asked to undertake a piece of fieldwork to assess whether the opinions regarding proposed fracking vary with distance from the test drilling site. Describe how you would carry out this fieldwork.'

    From the notes that we made in class, this is how I would tackle the question:
    - Hypothesis
    - Sampling Methods (Random, Systematic and Stratified)
    - Identify data collection sites
    - Risk Assessment
    - Create a questionnaire (examples of questions that you might ask)
    - Presentation and analysis of data (examples)

    Hope this helps

    Flaring is used because in exploratory stage the company is not allowed to tap the gas. therefore it has to be burnt / flared off. it is a metal column wrapped in casing to reduce visual impacts and is on the site hope that helps

    I would really advise looking on the website given in your zigzag booklet there is some really controversial points on him.

    For example he isnt all he says he is, lies and exaggerates many points
