Lesson 1 intro Lesson 1 intro Presentation Transcript

  • Access Geography Unit 3 Week 15 The Dynamic Earth Introduction
  • Today’s Targets
    • 1.Review the last module
    • 2. Introduce physical systems and processes
    • 3. Outline key themes
    • 4. Introduce Hydrology
    • 5. Review lesson aims
  • Review of Last Module
    • What key themes did you identify?
    • What were the common differences between more and less economically developed countries?
    • Were there any unexpected issues or trends occurring in the countries that you studied?
  • Introduction to Physical Systems
    • In the physical world there are four main spheres or ‘worlds’. Can you name them?
    • Air
    • Water
    • Life
    • Rocks (soil)
    • What do you know about each area?
    • In each case, the sphere operates as a system with inputs, processes and outputs
    • Can you represent such a system as a diagram?
    • On a planetary scale, apart from the solar energy (an open system), these are closed systems
    • They all interlink
    Biotic and abiotic systems
  • Key Themes
    • Part 1. The hydrological cycle and the river basin system: how does water move around the planet and how do rivers and streams affect landscapes
    • Part 2. Ecosystems and vegetation biomes: the links between climate, soils, vegetation and human activity
    • Part 3. Atmospheric processes and climate: how the global atmospheric system affect the climate in particular places and how human activities are changing the climate
