By adding some place names in it helps you pick up some extra marks and is quite an easy way.

So, in my definition of Rockfall and Mudlow when describing mass movements - does anyone have some place names I could throw in?

So I can just add in something like "This process of rockfall commonly occurs in ________" etc.

Cheers for all help! tongue.gif

Rockfalls are common occurrences on steep scree slopes, which can be found around the world. However, they are most common in areas where the temperature often fluctuates above and below freezing as the freeze-thaw process widens cracks and loosens rock fragments. For the exam, you can suggest the mountains of the Cairngorms or the Lake District as areas where rockfalls are relatively common. If you want a very specific example, there has apparently been a big rockfall on a buttress at Yew Crag in the Lake District. Climbing has been banned in Castle Head Quarry (also in the Lake District) due to danger of rockfall.

Was just wondering what kind of questions can be asked about mudflows and rockfalls, landslides?

Thanks and congratulations smile.gif

Questions won't be complicated. For instance: "Explain the processes of two mass movements that you have studied." And they will likely suggest that you incorporate an illustration into your answer.

For instance, you could draw a crack in the rock being filled with water then freezing, expanding and causing rock fragments to break off. You could draw the different angles of slope associated with the different types of mass movement. In a diagram showing soil creep you could indicate the damage to fences, pylons and roads.

Bred, you're amazing.


Now why have I never even heard of a rockflow before? That's the second thing today. And what else haven't I heard of that will probably come up in the exam tomorrow.
