3WHERE ARE THERE FLOODS IN THE WORLD? Huge floods occur in China, India, Bangladesh Missisippi Valley.In Poland most floods occur near Wisla and Odra.
4WHAT SHOULD YOU DO DURING A FLOOD? Constantly listen to the radio to get information about the level of the floods.Maintain constant readiness to evacuate.Don’t panic!Carefully use bridges and roads.Don’t drink and eat food that has been in contact with flood water.
5EFFECTS OF FLOODS: Destroyed houses and farms. Death of animals and people.
6WHAT CAUSES FLOODING? Heavy rain Damming of the river by ice jams or landslides.TsunamiBackwater
7THE BIGGEST FLOODS IN POLAND: 1934r. - The flood covered the Dunajec river basin, Raby, part of the basin Wisłoka and Skawa1990r. – Flood millennium
9CAUSES AND EFFECTS OF VOLCANIC EXPLOSIONS Reasons:- Magma clogs the mouth of all possible opennings.Effects:- A very large debris.- Strong pressure gas.- Runoff and mudslides.- Borehole.- Huge boilers.
10Where they exist in the world Volcanoes are on the limits of lithospheric plates in places where the oceanic plate pushes under the continental one.For example, on the western coast of the Americas (Cordillera and the Andes), the east coast of Asia.
11Ring of fireZone of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that surrounds the Pacific Ocean.
12Is there a risk of volcano erruption in Poland? In Poland we have some volcanos but happily they are not active.The highest Polish volcano is called Ostrzyca Proboszczowicka and has a height of 501 meters.There are no volcanos which are threatening us.
13What should you do during an eruption? Do not panic!Lock the doors and windows.Put wet towels under the doors.Hide your sensitive electrical equipment.Do not use the phone.Put on a mask, hold a handkerchief or other material on the nose and mouth, and always wear safety goggles.
20An earthquake is what happens when two blocks of the earth suddenly slip past one another. The location below the earth’s surface where the earthquake starts is called the hypocenter, and the location directly above it on the surface of the earth is called the epicenter.
22HUMAN ACTIVITY:Earthquakes are also caused by human activity: subsidence through mining activites, shock caused by explosions (bombs), building big artificial water reservoirs which affect balance of rock masses.
23The occurrence of earthquakes California along the San Andreas fault.There are also earthquake for instance in Scandinavia.Frequent earthquakes occur in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
24Effects of Earthquakes Cracks and scratches on the surface of the earthThe slots (sometimes depth of up to several meters)Ground faults ("cutting" the form of the hill on falling rows of blocks of rock)Horizontal movement along the faultRaising the coast and the creation of a cliff (as a result of, or actual raising the coast, or dropping the bottom of the waterSeparating the coast of the mainland, and the creation of shallowDome-shaped lake (caused by disorders of groundwater)
38A Cyclone What is a cyclone? How does a cyclone occur? Where do cyclones occur?What are the effects of a cyclone?How to protect yourself?
39What is a cyclone?A cyclone is an area of rotating winds that occurs on the ocean.It occurs on the ocean and sometimes moves onto the land.It looks like a tornado.
40How does a cyclone occur? For an cyclone to occur there have to be special condition:The water has to be 26,5°CTemperature and humidity should correspond to the development of storm clouds.The distance from the equater should be at least 500km.Then the strom clouds meet with hot air and the pressure becomes very high and the air begins to move spiral.
41Where do cyclones occur? Cyclones occur near the equator and the tropics. They occur on the ocean but quickly move on to land.Cyclones, rainfalls, floods
42What are the effects of a cyclone? Destruction of citiesDeath of people and animalsFloodsEpidemicsContamination
43How to protect yourself? When a cyclone hits you should:Hide in the strongest part of the building like the celler.Turn off all electroical divices.If the building is falling hide under a table or in between the mattress.If the cyclone hits during the time when you are in your car stop the car and don’t get out.
