Welcome to this GCSE Geography revision Course on Natural Hazards Climate. It covers weather hazards and climate change, featuring diagrams and images to aid understanding.
The aim of this Course is to present all the relevant material in an engaging manner and test your knowledge at the end.
Let us begin with focusing on the wider picture. Global atmospheric circulation contributes to the understanding of the location of the Earth's climatic zones. This study note prepares you for your journey into Climate by explaining how it all works.
This slide deck takes us through the most recent changes in the Earth's geological timeline (a mere 2.6 million years ago until now..). Also included is a short video with a history of Earth's climate.
The causes of climate change can be divided into naturally occurring causes and human causes. This comprehensive study note takes a look at each of the causes in turn and then outlines the effect on the environment today.
The effects of climate change are estimated to grow in the coming decades. There is no way to undo the damage that has already been done to the planet. Instead, there are two options for dealing with climate change; mitigation and adaptation.
