Our Course begins with an introduction to Plate Tetonic Theory - a significant theory as it explains the movement of continents, which is no small thing! Learn about the theory and the types of earth crust in this GoConqr slide deck.
There are three types of plate margins; converging (destructive), diverging (constructive), and transverse (conservative).
As this note explains the different plate margins bring different local effects and hazards, some being larger than others
Strap yourself in, this Course is about to blow! Everything you need to know about volcanoes is covered in this slide set; What is a volcano? Where do volcanoes occur? Positives and negatives of volcanoes, types and examples of volcanic landform
This note explores the effects that natural hazards have on the immediate environment and human players. The impacts can be huge, but there are mitigation's that can be taken to minimise impact, as explored in this GCSE revision note.
