Presented in PowerPoint presentation format these resources include a wide range of up-to-date case studies. They have been designed to meet examination specifications and examiners’ reports and do not necessarily represent MSF’s official opinion.  

Tectonic Activity and Hazards: Earthquakes presents a challenging approach to the earthquake option of the synoptic research unit. The focus of the presentation is the management of earthquakes, including the earthquakes in Italy (2009), Haiti (2010), Japan (2011) and Turkey (2011).

This resource reflects a contemporary approach to geography. It looks at the use of Geographical Information Systems, 'crowdsourcing' and ICT following disasters, as well as the social impacts of earthquakes.
