1 1. Objective (READ) SWBAT identify modifications to the environment in SE Asia. 2. Question of the Day. (TURN OBJECTIVE INTO A QUESTION) 3. Warm-up (ANSWER) A. If you were the mayor of a major city, how would you address the following problems: 1. Earthquakes 2. Lack of good farmland

2 Table of Contents DateTitleLesson # 3/24Sri Lanka Conflict74 **SE ASIA** 3/29Cover Page75 3/30Physical Geography76 3/31Human-Environment Interaction Create an HEI page after your last physical geography page.

3 Problems in China that require HEI 1. Earthquakes 2. Lack of Arable Land – Desertification

4 Intro Clips - L 1. Earthquakes – Explain why these are problems. 2. Desertification – How would this impact a city economically?

5 Desertification Clips 1. How would these sandstorms affect a region economically? 2. What is China doing to fight its desertification situation?

6 Human-Environment Interaction, How do people adapt in Japan?

7 Why is Japan affected by internal forces? A. The islands of Japan were created by the movement of plate tectonics. B. Still active, Japan is affected by volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis. Mt. Fuji in Japan last erupted in 1707

8 The Ring of Fire Using the map on pg. 662, which East Asian country has the greatest concentration of active volcanoes? (Answer this question in your notebook)

9 Human Environment Interaction and Levels of Development In East and Southeast Asia people have to modify and adapt to the environment. In East and Southeast Asia people have to modify and adapt to the environment. Modifications and adaptations are directly related to their economic development. Modifications and adaptations are directly related to their economic development. The more developed the area the more advanced their adaptations/modifications. The more developed the area the more advanced their adaptations/modifications. The less developed areas have less advanced adaptations/modifications. The less developed areas have less advanced adaptations/modifications. READ ONLY

10 What has Japan done to prepare for future earthquakes or tsunamis? 1.Established strict building codes. 2.School children and adults participate every year in disaster drills. 3.Skyscrapers are built on gyroscopes (springs). 4.Tsunami warning system in the Pacific.

11 Adapting to Plate Tectonics In more developed areas Skyscrapers are built on gyroscopes (springs). In more developed areas Skyscrapers are built on gyroscopes (springs).

12 Adapting to Plate Tectonics Less developed areas buildings are on pilings. Less developed areas buildings are on pilings. Pilings are made of wood. Pilings are made of wood.

13 Lack of Arable Land - Intro Another problem in E/SE Asia is a lack of arable land. Another problem in E/SE Asia is a lack of arable land. Arable land land suitable for farming Arable land land suitable for farming HEI – they adapt to a lack of arable land…heres how HEI – they adapt to a lack of arable land…heres how

14 Lack of Arable Land Less developed areas use terraced farming- farming on ledges, on the side of the hill. Less developed areas use terraced farming- farming on ledges, on the side of the hill. Planting on slopes allows otherwise unproductive land to be use for farming. Planting on slopes allows otherwise unproductive land to be use for farming. Both developed and developing areas of the world use terraced farming Both developed and developing areas of the world use terraced farming Use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery. Use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery.

15 Lack of Arable Land Both Developed and developing nations use terraced farming Both Developed and developing nations use terraced farming Developing areas - use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery. Developing areas - use traditional farming techniques, little or no machinery. COPY WHATS INSIDE THE BOX

16 Lack of Arable Land Land Reclamation- bringing land damaged by natural or human causes back into use for farming Land Reclamation- bringing land damaged by natural or human causes back into use for farming Developed nations only – too expensive Developed nations only – too expensive COPY WHATS INSIDE THE BOX

17 Lack of Arable Land COPY WHATS INSIDE THE BOX Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project (China) – increasing farmland on land that was once swamp or semi-arid Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project (China) – increasing farmland on land that was once swamp or semi-arid Why: Why: –Crucial to ensuring China's food security –Uses the most advanced farming techniques and machines in the world

18 Heilongjiang Land Reclamation Project The project would develop some 200,000 ha of virgin land in Heilongjiang Province for the production of food grains and soybean. Principal features of the project would be drainage works; larger and more modern agricultural machinery for full mechanization of farming operations; construction equipment; and provision of roads, housing and supporting infrastructure. Training in equipment operation and maintenance and in construction techniques would be provided together with technical assistance (78 man- months of consultant services) in the fields of planning, training, and seed production. The project would produce more than 440,000 tons of grain and soybean annually, and thereby help reduce China's food grain deficit. It would serve as a large-scale trial and demonstration of techniques applicable to an additional 470,000 ha of uncultivated land and some 2 million ha now cultivated by state farms in Heilongjiang.

How have people in East and Southeast Asia modified or adapted to their environment? How have people in East and Southeast Asia modified or adapted to their environment? How does economic development affect how the people of East and Southeast Asia are able to modify or adapt to their environment? How does economic development affect how the people of East and Southeast Asia are able to modify or adapt to their environment?
