Thailand Geography Inquiry
1. Identify the expectation(s) that you are currently focusing on. This can be taken directly from the outline. analyse aspects of the extraction/harvesting and use of natural resources in different regions of the world, and assess ways of preserving these resources.
the natural resources in thailand are: tin, rubber, natural gas, tungsten, tantalum, timber, lead, fish, gypsum, lignite, fluorite, arable land.
Copper, Lead, Zinc, Silver, Antimony
Most of these deposits are related to the calc-alkali volcanic rock, mainly andesite. Some of these deposits are replacement and vein deposits. Stratiform lead and zinc deposits are found at Nong Phai and Song Tho in Kanchanaburi in the middle Ordovician limestone. Zinc deposit at Pha Daeng, Mae Sot is the largest zinc deposit in Thailand. The ore are zinc carbonate and zinc silicate in the supergene enrichment in the Jurassic Kamawkala limestone near the Thai-Myanmar border
Questions to answer.
What places are not populated? Dramatic decline in population growth from 3.1% in 1960 to around 0.4% today Thailand's Population 67,391,820
where are thailands waste lands?
A landfill and a dumpsite are 2 different things that are somewhat the same. A landfill is a sanitary place that doesn't let the garbage go to the groundwater. A dumpsite its a place where people can dump things and i may end up in the groundwater.
How will knowing about the ways humans adapted to the environment help us in the future? People in Thailand wear light colours all year because it's always hot in Thailand.
five horizontal bands of red (top), white, blue (double width), white, and red; the red color symbolizes the nation and the blood of life; white represents religion and the purity of Buddhism; blue stands for the monarchy.
2. Analyze some challenges and opportunities presented by the physical environment (climate,landforms, soil types, vegetation, natural resources) and ways in which people have responded to them.
vegetation: evergreen forest, deciduous forest, bamboo, ferns, coconut palms, rattan, banana plants, tropical fruit trees, mangrove trees
natural resources: tin, rubber, natural gas, tungsten, tantalum, timber, lead, fish, gypsum, lignite, fluorite, arable land.
climate: The climate is tropical, with three defined seasons - a hot, dry spring, a hot, wet summer, and a mild winter.
landforms: the Himalaya Mountains, the Khorat Plateau and the Indochina Peninsula
some problems thailand has are: water and air pollution, declining wildlife population, deforestation, soil erosion, water scarcity, hazardous waste, over fishing, and solid waste.
I infer that people in thailand responded to the: vegetation, natural resources, and the landforms by taking part in the problems above. For climate
