Hello. Do you need to know two volcano case studies - one in an LEDC, one in a MEDC - for the Restless Earth or just one?

The two I've learnt about are :
Soufriere Hills (Montserrat)
AND
Yellowstone (supervolcano)
But that's all for the Volcano casestudies.

I've only learnt Nevado del Ruiz. I thought the questions would be asked on the tectonic hazards you have learnt about; so you could use earthquakes?

I think you need 2, this way if they ask you a question such as ' compare and contrast the effects of two volcanoes you have studied' they are looking really for and medc and ledc of contrasting areas, you would still get marks if you had to use two MEDCs/LEDCs but there would be less to compare such as the government responses etc

Hope this helps :)

I've learnt quite a couple.. If you have more than 2 then i guess it kinda shows the examiner that you have a wider knowlegde about the topic. =)

Do we need two regular volcanoes (MEDC and LEDS) and one supervolcano, or just the regular volano ones? :s

You need to know 2 on LEDC and one MEDC so that if you are asked, you can compare them.

I am learning chances peak, monserrat 1995-97 and mount st helens, USA 1980

It is also useful to know a supervolcano case study like yellowstone, USA

Ive studied four volcano case studies. Ive been told its because the more case studies you mention in the AQA 40 marks essay, the more marks it will help you get.

2 MEDC: Mt Etna 2002 and Eyjafjallajokull 2010

2 LEDC: Mt Merapi and Mt Pinatubo

no  you just need to know the case study s on different types of volcanoes i learnt the mount ST helens and yellow stone case study s as they are the best and will help you most but i think it would be a good idea to know a few cast studys of volcanoes in ledc and medc countrys!
