1 Physical Case – Study Questions Year 11 Geography IGCSE

2 Level Marking

3 NOVEMBER

4 For a named area which you have studied, explain how the natural environment provides opportunities and causes problems for people. (NOV )

5 Describe and explain the main characteristics of the natural vegetation of a tropical rainforest. You must include a labeled diagram. (NOV )

7 For a named area of tropical rainforest which you have studied, describe and explain the characteristics of its climate. (NOV )

8 For a named area which you have studied, describe the impacts of river flooding. (NOV )

9 For a named area of tropical rainforest which you have studied, describe and explain the main features of its climate. (NOV )

10 JUNE

11 Explain how an oxbow lake is formed. You should include fully labelled diagram(s). (JUNE )

15 For a named area of coral reef which you have studied, describe the conditions which led to its formation. (JUNE )

16 Explain why weathering of rocks is more rapid in humid tropical regions than in temperate regions. You should refer to examples of different types of weathering in your answer. (JUNE )

17 OCTOBER / NOVEMBER 2011

18 For a named river which you have studied, explain what has been done to reduce flooding. Q1 - (O/N )

19 Volcanic eruptions are another natural hazard. For a named example of a volcanic eruption which you have studied, describe its effects. Q2 - (O/N )

20 For a named river which you have studied, describe the advantages and difficulties of living on its flood plain. Q1 - (O/N )

21 In many parts of the world weather and climate may cause natural disasters. These include drought and tropical storms. For either a drought or a tropical storm which you have studied, describe the impacts on a named area which you have studied. Q2 - (O/N )

22 Describe the impacts of a natural hazard on a named coastal area which you have studied. Q1 - (O/N )

23 For a named area of tropical desert which you have studied, describe the features of the natural vegetation and explain how it can survive in the desert climate. Q2 - (O/N )

24 May / June

25 3C: Name an area which you have studied where tropical storms occur. Describe the problems which they cause people living in your chosen area. (7) (June )

26 4C: For a named tropical desert which you have studied, describe and explain the characteristics of its climate. (7) (June )

27 3C: For a named area of tropical forest which you have studied, describe and explain the characteristics of its climate. (7) (June 2011 – 12)

28 4C: Name an area which you have studied where there has been an earthquake. Describe the impacts of the earthquake. (7)(June )

29 3C: An earthquake is an example of a natural hazard. Choose an example of one of the following: a) tropical storm or b) a drought. For a named area, describe the causes and effects of your chosen hazard. (7) (June )

30 4C: For a named river you have studied, explain what has been done to reduce flooding. (7) (June )

31 Explain how one of the following has formed in a named area which you have studied. [spit or an area of coastal sand dune] You should use labelled diagrams in your answer. (Q3-ON )

32 For a named tropical desert, explain how and why the natural environment is threatened by human activity. (Q4-ON )

33 Explain how and why a delta is formed. You should refer to an example you have studied and include labelled diagrams. (Q3-ON )

34 For a named area of tropical desert you have studied, explain why and how it is at risk from human activity. (Q4-ON )

35 For a named area, describe the causes of the hazard which you have chosen. [F, ST or D] (Q3-ON )

36 Describe the ways in which your chosen type of natural environment can provide opportunities for the people who live there. [an area of mountain, a fast flowing river or flood plain] (Q4-ON )

37 May / June
