GEOG4- Tectonic activity and hazards [2014] pre-release series: #4- pre-release revision PPT.

Hey there.

Okay this is the fourth (and final, I think) in the "series" in preparation for the exam on the 16th June 2014. It's scary, I know but if you use the resources on Get Revising and prepare, you will be fine!

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.

.

So finally here's #4.

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!

CAN COMPARE THE DIFFERENCE BUT THE RANGE OF CASE STUDIES NEEDS TO BE BALANCED.

· MANAGED BY OFFERS SCOPE FOR A WIDE RANGE OF ORGANISATIONS. THIS WILL ALLOW A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE TOP-DOWN (GOVERNMENTS)
AND BOTTOM-UP (NGOS AND COMMUNITIES) APPROACHES.

TECTONIC EVENTS AND AREAS THAT HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED A TECTONIC HAZARD BEFORE. HOW WILL THIS AFFECT THE RESPONSE?
