(i)should show knowledge and understanding of the problems arising from the impact of glacial processes and landforms on human activity or from the impact of human activities on glacial environments; (ii)should show knowledge and understanding of the strategies put in place to manage these impacts; (iii)should show an assessment of the effectiveness of the above strategies; better candidates should make an assessment of the effectiveness of the strategies discussed throughout, whereas the average candidate may only assess the strategies in passing or perhaps briefly in their conclusion. Candidates need to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the problems arising from the impacts of glacial processes and landforms on human activity or the impact of human activity on glacial environments. There may be a discussion not only of the nature, but also of the seriousness of the impacts. In order to assess the effectiveness of strategies adopted to deal with the impacts, candidates will need to briefly describe the strategies. Strategies will vary depending on the glacial environment chosen. The assessment should involve an evaluation of both the positive and negative aspects of the strategies adopted in relation to the aims of the strategies implemented.
Assess the effectiveness of strategies used to manage the impacts of glacial processes and landforms on Human activity.
Problems arising from glacial processes and landforms
Strategies used to deal with these (remember to assess +tive and -tive)
Many strategies have been put in place to manage the impact of glacial processes. The types of glacial processes they would be managing range from erosional processes
Glacial processes- avalanche, ablation glacial (flooding) & fluvioglacial deposition (landslides)
Landforms- pyramidal peaks,
