Geohazards: What turns a natural event into a hazard or a disaster?

by Kate Conway on September 16, 2013

Geohazards is an area undergoing rapid change and re-appraisal in the specifications, so there has never been a more important time for students to have access to up to date resources that emphasise contemporary thinking about hazard events, risk and vulnerability.

Filmed in Montserrat, Haiti and Iceland, our titles provide fantastic case study material with which to compare vulnerability between MEDCs and LEDCs.

Made specifcially to meet the needs of the UK and international geography specifications, Pumpkin’s DVDs encourage students to explore the role of physical and social factors and evaluate how they affect the impact of a geo-hazard event.

But of course the best way of dealing with natural disasters is often before they have even occured. Our footage filmed with NGO and government projects illustrates how improvements to infrastructure, such as education, healthcare and sanitation can improve resilience. And our title on Monitoring and Predication, shows how early warning systems, advance planning and public education can reduce risk.

And you can be confident our titles deliver the required knowledge of geographical systems, processes and landforms, because unlike other documentaries, they are researched, filmed and produced by geographers – so they're perfect for specialist and non-specialist teachers alike.

And with the photo annotation exercises, exam style questions, DMEs and many other activities that accompany the video material you'll save precious preparation time. Written by senior examiner and GA president Bob Digby, they cover GCSE, GCE, IB and Pre U requirements and have also been designed to work with a range of abilities – just to make life even easier for you.

All our geography resources are currently available with a 10% discount.
