RGS Y3 Geog - Hazards and Disasters


Y3 Geog - Hazards and Disasters notes

(notes by Mei Fei Fei)

This is a set of notes that were compiled for the end-of-year exams for geography! Hence it is very long, but fret not -- actually consists of 3-ish topics (Climate change, Natural hazards, and Human hazards). Just a disclaimer in case you try to cram this entire set of notes into your head: don't! Try to summarise because there's a lot of extra reading and fun-facts inside this set of notes that aren't extremely necessary. Thank you to my senior who was willing to share her notes :)
