2. CLIMATE CHANGE

a) ESSAY: Outline the sources of evidence for long-term climate change (10 marks)

•To get full marks you need to outline (describe and explain) a number of sources of evidence for long-term climate change, e.g. Ice cores, pollen analysis and indicators of sea-level change
•Structure the answer to have an introduction, then separate sections outlining each of the sources of evidence and finish with a conclusion
•In your introduction, define the key terms of the question such as ‘climate change’ and ‘long-term’, e.g. ‘Climate change is any significant change in the weather of a region over a period of at least several decades.’
•For each source of evidence describe it and then explain how it’s used to determine past climate change, e.g. Scientists can drill deep into ice sheets (huge masses of ice) to extract cores of ice. When the ice was formed, gases were trapped inside it. Scientists can analyse these gases to tell what the temperature was when the ice was formed.
b)  p 51 Philip Allan Review Qs 1-4
