GEOG4- Tectonic activity and hazards [2014] pre-release series: #3- pre-release revision notes.

Hi there. 

It's me again with the resources for the unit four: tectonic activity and hazards.

You may have seen my resources from my unit 3, if you haven't, where have you been? Check my name and look at the resources for the pre-release I hope they help.

Anyway, I liked the concept of a series for the pre-release and I thought I'd do the same for the unit 4: tectonic activity and hazards.

So here's #3.

Projected documents in the series:

#1- Deciphering the question.

#2- Case studies for unit 4.

#3- Pre-release revision notes.

#4- PowerPoint on the pre-release.

Good luck for your exam!

Earthquakes
You can't modify the event of an earthquake nor can you successfully predict. With earthquakes, the aim is on modifying the
event after it has taken place. Strategies used before the event mainly focus on modifying human vulnerability. Whereas, after
the event, the focus is on modifying the loss…
