    Why did so many people die in the 2010 Haiti earthquake?

    5 star(s)

    The area with the most damage, Port-au-Prince, was built on loose sedimentary rock, which amplifies the seismic waves and intensifies them. We can see how much extra damage the loose sediment does as houses that were built on hard rock that were closer to the fault line survived, but houses in Port-au-Prince that were built on loose sediment 15 miles away did not. The focus was only 13km deep so the quake did not lose much energy when it reached the surface.

    Discuss the negative impacts of Urbanisation

    5 star(s)

    This is made even more difficult because these migrant are mostly farmers, non-skilled and illiterate rural people. Very few people make their fortunes, some end up as illegal street sellers, cleaners, waste collectors, domestic servants or odd jobs laborers while the rest must still find ways to eat and sleep while waiting for their chance. With unemployment and poverty, it leads to one of the most obvious effects of urbanization, that is, the growth of slum. and its associate problems.

    Lognor Case Study

    5 star(s)

    Also villages like Longnor are attractive to retirees as they are quiet and peaceful, they have places to walk and relax with lots of open spaces and greenery and clean air. They are far enough out of busy cities and younger generations but are within distance of local towns. With so many commuters and retirees buying many of the houses in Longnor, they are raising the prices of all houses in Longnor. Also the houses have doubled in price during the property boom of the 80s and keep on rising.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare two seaside towns that I visited in March 2003. The two towns, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on the-Naze can be located side by side on the east coast of Britain.

    "My results for the town centre EQA shows that my opinion for the two towns was very different from one another. But, for the seafront EQA the results show that I don't really have an opinion on either of the two towns. This has affected my conclusion as it helps to disprove one of my predictions. Perhaps the reason for this is that I didn't try hard enough to differentiate between the two seafronts at the time of the trip. If I had tried to be more self-convincing about how I did the marking, I would have acquired better and more reliable results. I could improve my methods by being more accurate about my opinions and the results that I got. 1"

  • The aim of this project is to identify and discuss relevant Synergies, Dependencies, Vulnerabilities and Conflicts between Air Traffic Services and Airport Operations.

    "Conclusion The interface between ATS and AO is a vital part of the Aviation System. Both these elements aim to promote safe and efficient air transportation. AO focus upon the transition of passengers and cargo to and from aircraft and airport whereas ATS focus upon the transition of aircraft between airports. Air travel has increased rapidly during the past 30 years and will continue to do so. Air traffic control systems and airport operations have increased their role in the system and both most work effectively to ensure air travel safety. Airport capacity will continue to expand to accommodate for airport operations and aircraft and so the air traffic control system has to be efficient in dealing with the rise of movements.

  • Compare the jobs of property owners and the change in pricing of properties over the years.

    "This graph shows the ranges in prices of different kinds of properties. Quite obviously, we see that house have a greater average price than any of the other kinds. The results from Terrace properties show a big range. These results don't seem very reliable - as there are only 2 results, which seem to contradict each other. Suites, quite obviously are quite expensive - as much as some of the houses. However, again there is one record to draw a conclusion from which devalues its strength of reliability. This is the same with the "Apartment" result, which lies at about the pricing. "Flats" and "Flat/Block" are averagely priced lowest in relationship to the other properties. These results are quite accurate, as they are taken from many different areas around London - however, I know that flats can range greatly in price - which mostly contradicts my results."
