Lesson 9 hurricane case study

  1. 1. Feedforward Time4 November 2014 1. Check your book for purple dots. 2. Correct / complete / redo work. 3. Stick in any sheets 4. Choose a target to write in your WID: a) I will ensure that I avoid Banned Words, using geographical terms b) I will expand on answers using connectives c) I need to consistently use data to support my answers d) I need to give balanced answers, for example writing about winter and summer. e) I need to write about the effects on groups of people f) I need to revise the sequence of a depression
  2. 2. Homework Thursday will be a past paper covering: • The factors affecting climate ( A LAD) • Climate Graphs • Anticyclones and Depressions • The effects of weather on people

  5. 5. The calm part is the eye. Fast convection currents Cool dense air Trade winds from NW in northern hemisphere or from SW in southern hemisphere move towards equator. Coriolis force causes winds to rotate. High hurricane speed winds and heavy rain occur here. Warm moist air from the tropical seas Tropical storms form over oceans with temperatures of +27˚C and sea depth of at least 60metres where water can evaporate and fuel the storm.

  10. 10. • 29th August 2005 • USA (formed as Category 5 in Bahamas first, made landfall in USA as Category 3 hurricane) • Worst affected = Florida, Louisiana (especially New Orleans which is 2-3metres below sea level naturally) • 155mph winds • 80% of New Orleans city evacuated • Breached levees (flood defences) with a 10m+ storm surge • 1200 drowned. 600 died from disease such as cholera (unusual for MEDC). Total deaths at least 1833. • 1million homeless (800’000 for over a year in temporary housing). Residents evacuated to superdome. • Criticised for poor government response (e.g. George Bush slow to declare emergency or launch FEMA rescue) • $90.9billion damages (costliest disaster in US history). Looting. Google timeline

  13. 13. Mockumentary • Teams of 4 • Research then produce mock documentary • Assign yourself roles to focus your research: – Key facts (primary & secondary impacts) – Human responses to the storm – Mapping and prediction of the storm – Preparation for the storm (evaluate this) You will be chosen at random to present

  16. 16. Point 1 Hurricane Katrina in August 2005 was the worst disaster in US history. Point 3 Critics say that the impacts were made worse by government mismanagement Point 2 When the storm hit Louisiana it was a Category 3 scale depression. Make & describe your point Use place specific evidence (Prove it) Explain (So What) Link back to question (Describe&explaintheimpactsofaclimatichazard youhavestudied.9marks)

  18. 18. Why do people live in areas at risk of tropical storms? 1. Find a map that shows the distribution of tropical storms 2. Describe the location / pattern of the worst affected areas. Choose specific countries. 3. Suggest reasons (based on research) why people choose to live in risk areas (social, economic, environmental reasons). What benefits?
  19. 19. How to prepare for a tropical storm • Create a guide aimed at Louisiana residents. • The aim is to advise local residents how they should prepare for a hurricane • Must also be understood by non-English speakers (Louisiana has a high Hispanic population). So think about images & translations. • Include: – Possible effects of hurricanes: • Storm surge • Wind speed – Evacuation plans – what to pack, where to go – Emergency supplies at home – Protecting homes and businesses from damage – Protecting against looting

  21. 21. Making connections: SOLO hexagons
  22. 22. SOLO Hexagons 1. Mindmap all you can remember about the tropical storms including the case studies 2. Write each point out onto a hexagon 3. Now try to match these hexagons up to other hexagons to MAKE LINKS 4. CHALLENGE: how many connections can you make? Try for at least 3 sides of the hexagons to connect. 5. Use the pattern to structure your extended writing
  23. 23. e.g. Here’s one I made earlier…
  24. 24. Cyclone Nargis • Worst natural disaster in Burma / Myanmar • Began as an intense tropical depression on April 27th 2008 in the Bay of Bengal. Made landfall over Irrawaddy delta in Burma on May 2nd. • Meteorologists initially thought storm would track over Bangladesh • However, the storm changed direction and headed towards Burma: this was not realised immediately due to a lack of prediction and monitoring equipment in the region • Category 4 storm on the Simpson–Saffir scale • 130-145mph winds. 600mm of rain fell. • 138’000 people were killed • $10 billion damage occurred • 75% of hospitals and clinics were badly destroyed or damaged • Diarrhoea, dysentery & skin infections afflicted the survivors who were crammed into monasteries, schools and public buildings for safety • Burma’s military government was resistant to foreign aid. UK donated £17million but much was lost on black market & looting.
  25. 25. Natural Hazards practise Qs 1. Describe & explain the causes of earthquakes & volcanic activity [3marks] 2. What is a ‘divergent plate’? [1mark] 3. Using a sketch, explain how a tropical storm is formed. [4marks] 4. Describe the pattern of where earthquakes, volcanoes and tropical storms occur. Why do they occur in these locations? [5marks] 5. Suggest reasons why the loss of life in an LEDC may be greater than in an MEDC. [4marks]
