  • Natural Hazards 2
    • Why do people live in tectonically active areas?
      • Geothermal energy(heat from Magma) WHY? Renewable. Little to no CO2
      • Farming(volcanic soil) WHY? Creates volcanic coffee. Brings sulfur- nutrient for the plant
      • Mining(sulphur from crater of volcano take up to become solid) WHY? Used for whitening sugar, cosmetics and skin medicine
      • Tourism(hot springs, pools, streams etc.) WHY? Water gives healing effects to some diseases. Relaxing and people enjoy calming down.
    • Hazard management
      • MONITORING: detecting and recording physical changes and warning signs.
      • PREDICTING: using monitoring and other to predict when a tectonic event may occur.
      • PROTECTING: Physically designing things that will withstand tectonic hazards.
      • PLANNING: Having systems in place, such as evacuation routes so that the population is prepared in advance.
    • Examples of effects and responses after earthquake
      • PE: How many people are killed or injured.
      • SE: Homelessness, tsunami, landslide.
      • IR: Medical care, food and water, shelters.
      • LTR: Rebuilding infrastructure, setting up warning systems, building defence mechanisms
      • Primary effects: effects that are directly caused by the hazard itself.
      • Secondary effects: effects caused indirectly/occurred later.
      • Responses: immediate and long term.
