2. What physical processes are operating on the selected landscape?
Freeze Thaw Exfoliation Wetting and drying Plants and animals Rainwater
3. What evidence is there of how landforms are influenced by geology and past and present processes?
Dependant upon climate mainly as climate controls rainfall rates, plant and animal life and temperature – all of which form the three physical types of weathering seen on previous page. We know past climates have been different and therefore some landscapes we see today are clearly formed when the climate was different.
5. How do weather conditions reflect processes in the atmosphere at a local scale?
Altitude, exposure/shelter, water, buildings on concrete/tarmac, aspect, coasts and vegetation – eg
6. What influences the pattern of climate of the British Isles?
What Evidence? Rising global temperatures – increasing storms – changing ocean currents and ice sheet depletion.
Consequences – UK, World
How can we adapt?
9. How can system’s ideas help the study of river basins, water in the atmosphere and habitats including their soil and vegetation? A closed system – planet earth An open system – a river River Groundwater lake Rain Outputs Stores Inputs
