That Blue Square Thing - Geography Revision

Unit 6 Outline - Storms and Floods

WARNING! These pages are now very old. They were last updated in 2008 and the content applies to an old version of any geography syllabus currently active in the UK.
I've kept them here because there might be something useful for someone and the general marking principles aren't all that different. But be aware that it's old and out of date (the stuff on the Google Earth page in particular may not work at all)

Storms and flooding are major weather hazards in many places. In areas like Bangladesh they can effect huge numbers of people who might find it difficult to manage the impacts effectively.

Don't forget to take a look at Depressions (BBC Bitesizeexternal link). They don't seem very important but you do need to know about them and the fronts that bring rain with them.
