Bear with me as asking this on behalf of my confused daughter! How many case studies will there be in Paper 1? Are case studies the same as Real Life examples - which is what her teacher refers to?

Yeah case studies are real life examples. How many case studies they will be asked about is different every time, they could be asked about one they could be asked about 10, make sure you have some knowledge of all of them

I'm not sure why everyone has so many case studies - I'm probably just going to have 4-6 max and you can usually make up statistics and facts as long as they're believable. They're based on real life examples such as an earthquake in Nepal or flooding in a UK city.

Use named examples to show how the effects and responses to a tectonic hazard vary between two areas of contrasting levels of wealth.

Use a named example of a tropical storm to show its effects and responses.

An example of a recent extreme weather event in the UK to illustrate:
causes
social, economic and environmental impacts
how management strategies can reduce risk.


An example of a small scale UK ecosystem to illustrate the concept of interrelationships within a natural system, an understanding of producers, consumers, decomposers, food chain, food web and nutrient cycling.

A case study of a tropical rainforest to illustrate:

causes of deforestation – subsistence and commercial farming, logging, road building, mineral extraction, energy development, settlement, population growth
impacts of deforestation – economic development, soil erosion, contribution to climate change.


They can choose between hot or cold environments:

A case study of a hot desert to illustrate:

development opportunities in hot desert environments: mineral extraction, energy, farming, tourism
challenges of developing hot desert environments: extreme temperatures, water supply, inaccessibility.


A case study of a cold environment to illustrate:

development opportunities in cold environments: mineral extraction, energy, fishing and tourism
challenges of developing cold environments: extreme temperature, inaccessibility, provision of buildings and infrastructure


Depends on what they choose from the options, 2 of the 3

Coasts
An example of a section of coastline in the UK to identify its major landforms of erosion and deposition.
An example of a coastal management scheme in the UK to show:

the reasons for management
the management strategy
the resulting effects and conflicts.


Rivers

An example of a river valley in the UK to identify its major landforms of erosion and deposition
An example of a flood management scheme in the UK to show:

why the scheme was required
the management strategy
the social, economic and environmental issues


Glaciers
An example of an upland area in the UK affected by glaciation to identify its major landforms of erosion and deposition.

An example of a glaciated upland area in the UK used for tourism to show:

the attractions for tourists
social, economic and environmental impacts of tourism
strategies used to manage the impact of tourism.
