Coasts as a multi-use area: CASE STUDY= Southampton
- The port of Southampton: handles 750,000 vehicles a year. Harbour of over 1km.
-Keyhaven nature reserve: over 800 hectares of mudflats and salt marsh. Provides recreational and educational facilities.
-Calshot Activity Centre: One of the largest water-based activities centres in the UK.
-Oil refinery: Handles over 2,000 ships a year, carrying 25 million tonnes of oil. Over 3000 people work there.
Economic development in coastal areas: CASE STUDY= Dubai
-Dubailand. Over 24 theme parks and shopping malls.

There is so much more but i can't be bothered sorry... I am ******** myself for tomorrow. What did you get in the mocks?
- Tropical rainforests - case study - Amazonian Rainforest - Biggest cause of deforestation = Cattle ranching. Others causes = Slash and Burn farming (locals clear land, vegetation burned provies ash= fertile soil, after the feritlity is exhausted, locals moves onto next areas, original area slowly regenerates) Roads to carry resources out of the amazon e.g. amazonian highway. Logging sought after wood, e.g. mahogany, exported to MEDC's. Ecotourism, e.g. ecolodge. Effects - loss of wildlife habitats, tribes driven form home, loss of medicines. Responses - Replanting trees, zoning (set aside areas for e.g. tourism, natural regeneration.
-Hot Deserts -case study - Sahara (LEDC) Australian Outback (MEDC) - Issues - Desertification (where more land becomes desert, soil blown away becomes useless for graze+crops) Overcultivation due to irrigation and salinity ( salts rise to the surface and toxicity causes them to die). Solutions should be sustainable farming methods. (cant be bothered writing anymore about hot deserts.)
-Temperate Deciduous Forest - case study - Epping Forest - uses - cleared for farming, felled for timber, used for recreational purposes. Sustainable - National trust conservation and protection of forest. Pollarding - cutting top branches to encourage new shoots.
