Tectonics: Tectonics Conference

  1. 1. Tectonics Conference<br />
  2. 2. 1. Discuss the degree to which the theory of Plate Tectonics is supported by the distribution of volcanic and seismic activity across the globe.<br />
  3. 3. The major surface features of the earth can be completely explained by the theory of plate tectonics. To what extent do you agree with this statement. <br />Volcanic and seismic events are major factors towards proving the validity of plate tectonic theory. Discuss. (40)<br />
  4. 4. 2. Using examples highlight the risks associated with areas of vulcanicity and possible responses to them<br />
  5. 5. 3. With reference to examples comment on the issues arising from areas with a high risk of seismicity and responses to them<br />
  6. 6. 4. Tectonic hazards are now manageable and should not result in loss of life in MEDC’s. Discuss this statement with reference to examples you have studied. <br />
  7. 7. The world distribution of population is as important as the world distribution of areas of tectonic activity in predicting the hazards of volcanic activity. Discuss (40)<br />
  8. 8. Discuss the view that attempts at management of hazards are a waste of time and effort. (40)<br /> <br />To what extent do you agree with the view that the hazards resulting from earthquakes and volcanic activity cannot be managed but merely adapted to? (40)<br />
