Self review of Natural hazards

  1. 1. Natural Hazards<br />Student’s nameClassDate<br />Now I’ve reached the end of the natural hazard unit:YesThink soNoI can describe the global distribution of volcanoes and earthquakes and give reasons for this pattern of distribution.I can draw and label the structure of the earth. I can explain how this is important in explaining why earthquakes and volcanoes occur.I can draw the different plate boundary’s and label the features of them. Constructive, destructive and conservative.  I can explain what happens at each type of boundary, divergent, convergent and conservative/transform I can give reasons why volcanoes occur at particular boundaries only I can give examples of economic, environmental and social impacts of earthquakes and volcanoes. I can give examples of primary and secondary impacts of earthquakes I can name an earthquake in an LEDC and MEDC and describe the impacts and the responses. E.g. Haiti and Japan 2011I can name a volcano in a MEDC and describe the impacts and responses. E.g. Iceland 2011 and MontserratI can explain how the impact of natural hazards can be reduced e.g. technology, building techniques, education, prediction, evacuation planning, aid etcI can describe and explain the global distribution of tropical cyclones and droughts.I can explain why tropical cyclones occur in the areas they doI can explain the climatic conditions that cause tropical cyclonesI can give examples of economic, environmental and social impacts of tropical cyclonesI can name a MEDC case study of a tropical storm and its causes, impacts and responses e.g. Hurricane Katrina I can name a LEDC case study of a tropical storm and give its causes, impacts and responses e.g. Bangladesh 1991 OR Burma/Myanmar 2008I can give reasons for the differences in impacts between LEDC and MEDCI can explain the climate causes of droughtsI can explain the social, economic and environmental impacts of droughtsI can name a MEDC drought case study with causes, impacts and responses e.g. USAI can name a LEDC drought case study with causes, impacts and responses e.g. The SahelI can explain why economic development can influence the severity of the impact of a hazardI can explain why people choose to continue to live in hazardous areas <br />I can explain what these terms mean:<br />Natural hazard  Epicentre  Eye  Infrastructure  Mantle Tectonic plate <br /> <br />Mid Ocean Ridge Tsunami  Levees  Drought Storm surge Subduction zone <br />
