  • ‘Compare & contrast the impact and management of hazards between MEDC & LEDC places’[8marks]Case study Q
  • Compare & contrast the impact and management of hazards between MEDC & LEDC case studies? MEDC LEDC rural urban physical features human features climate ocabular infrastructure communications preparations y tectonic primary effect secondary effect however likewise whereas even onnective though s on the other hand unlike contrasting to in addition to despite because so peners as to Nevertheless although similarly such as unctuatio The impact of hazards is likely to be more severe in……………..because n In LEDCs such as Haiti the main impacts were……………. Whereas in MEDC Iceland the impacts were……………….. Management of hazards is different between countries, such as……
  • Why live in the danger zone?List 5 reasonswhy peoplemay live intectonic zones.
  • Why live inBam, Iran?
  • Why live in Bam?O Surrounded by desert, it is a natural oasis areaO Very rare to have such access to waterO Rich soilsO Can create economic advantage
  • Why live in Ijen Java,Indonesia?
  • Sulphur mining. Matches and white sugar are among the productsmade with sulphur hewn by hand from an active volcano Ijen Java.Provides economic investment + employment.But, is this one of the most dangerous jobs in the world?
  • The miners break the cooled sulphur into chunks, and load up theirwicker baskets for the 200 metre climb back up out of the crater.Each man carries up to twice his body weight.
  • How can people andplaces be protected from the effects of tectonic activity?
  • Response & Recovery
  • Response & recovery
  • ‘How can the human response affect the impact of hazards?’ O Produce a presentation in groups (CHOSEN BY ME) O Create a written report & visual to answer the question. O Link to specific case studies (Haiti, Japan, Iceland,ENQUIRY Sri Lanka). O Include theory, key terms, impacts, responses, evidence.
