AQA A Level Geography: Hazards - Storm Hazards

(0)
Storm Hazards: The nature of tropical storms and their underlying causes Forms of hazard: high winds, storm surges, coastal flooding, river flooding and landslides Spatial distribution, magnitude, frequency, regularity, predictability of hazard events Impacts: primary/secondary, environmental, social, economic, political Short and long term responses: risk management designed to reduce the impacts of the hazard through preparedness, mitigation, prevention and adaptation

AQA A Level Geography: Hazards - Plate Tectonics

(0)
Plate Tectonics: Earth structure and internal energy sources Plate tectonic theory of crustal evolution: tectonic plates, plate movement, gravitational sliding, ridge push, slab pull, convection currents, sea-floor spreading Destructive, constructive and conservative plate margins Characteristic processes: seismicity and vulcanicity Associated landforms: young fold mountains, rift valleys, ocean ridges, deep sea trenches, island arcs and volcanoes Magma plumes and their relationship to plate movement
