Geography

most of the standard Q in Os are the management used to solve the specific problem etc river management costal management.
We have to state the advantage and the disadvantages. Just to ask when we write now the ans,we write whole chunk of advantages then whole chunk of disadvantages or advantage and disadvantage for each measure?

Re: Geography

my teacher says that write the point, elaborate on how it works then write advantages, then write disadvantages. then rinse and repeat for another point on a separate paragraph.

Re: Geography

We known such question as PEEE

Point ( Seawalls is a hard engineering coastal management strategy)
Elaboration( Seawalls are concrete walls........ ......)
Example( Example of countries are...........)
Evaluation ( advantage and disadvantage)

Do evaluation on each paragraph ( each strategy) and not writing it in whole chunks. Hope that helps!

I am not sure but I personally don't think its the right way. Simply because you are not "Assessing the effectiveness" each of the river management strategy but writing it out as a whole. In Geography, It is important where you put your answers. Paragraphing is important.

+rep if i do answer your question

Re: Geography

To add on, for 1 strategy you can paragraph it your own way since you only need to mention 1 and paragraphing is not much of a concern but remember to separate your conclusion from your evaluation made.

Earth OUR home
actually not all topic like that.But you see the river management one

EASY added 32 Minutes and 29 Seconds later...

also,some question very hard to make conclusion lie.Explain the effectiveness of river mangement.__>how do you conclude?
For me,I would write:Although river management is used to reduce the rate of flood,but it only retain its main purpose to a certain extent.Despite managing the river channel upstream,but it result in flooding downstream as downstream channel could not retain the fast and large volume of water flowing downstream.

Re: Geography

This questions are marked by Level of response, like our so called essays in Social studies.

So the structure is generally the same as an essay in SS, just that you no need to write the whole page (for obvious reasons).

My structure is this:

Point/strategy
Elaborations
Explanation
Example of success
Evaluations

Rinse and repeat for another paragraph.

Conclusion (hard to score, as the expectations are pretty high for this one.)

IMO this type of question requires the most studying, so if you are weak in geography, this is a good place to score your marks (as examples is pure memorising.). However you can do this question fine without example, as long as you have good elaborations, you by minimum will reach a 5/8. So no worries .

Again, I'll say that its not really important to reach that conclusion mark (its only 1m so I rather you spent your time enhancing your answers).

But if you really want, this is the type of conclusion I would use.

River management indeed, do have its abilities to help to reduce the probabilities of flood. However it have its flaws to be overcame. The potential of each measure is dependent on the situation. For example, the planting of vegetation at the sides of river may not be the most effective way for countries with small amount of land such as Singapore, thus for Singapore, usage of channelisation may be more appropriate in this case. Thus from this, we can see that the strategies of river management indeed is largely situational and comparing the strategies' effectiveness will also be wavered by such factors.

Re: Geography

Ok, when you answer a Geography LORMS question regarding evaluation of strategies, you tackle the strategies one by one.

E.g. of a paragraph:
Man-made levees are an example of structural management strategies involving the construction of artificial embankments along the river's containing channel. Levees mat reach up to 15m in height. These levees increase the carrying capacity of the river channel so as to prevent the overflowing of water. This is effective as it prevents localised flooding in flood-prone regions. However, levees require constant maintenance as undercutting by erosional processes may weaken the base of the levee. In addition, levees may not be effective at all. For example, in the Mississippi Flood of 1993, the 15m high levees were breached by flood waters due to the high rates of rainfall over a long period of time. This resulted in the death of 45 people.

This may not be the best example of a paragraph, but the essentials are there. Remember that when you quote examples, do not just "name-drop" (i.e. Levees are found along many rivers, for example the Mississippi River). This is useless and it shows a lot of laziness and lack of memory on your part. Give sufficient detail to beef up your example. Also, while you may try to guess and smoke through your examples, make sure that your figures are believeable. I have seen many idiots who write the death toll of the Mississippi catastrophe to "reach up to hundreds of thousands". Utter bullshit. The actual death toll was only between 40-45. Make sure you get your facts right.

This conclusion is fairly weak and will not score anything above 1 mark in terms of evaluation. Your evaluation is too specific. Yes, the effectiveness of each strategy does depend on the context and the environmental situation of each river. However, you need to show awareness that different strategies need to be employed together to make sure that there is proper protection from floods.

Main categories of river management measures:
- Structural mitigation
- non-structural mitigation
- flood abatement
