Key Terms

  • Erosion
  • Archipelago

  • Monsoon
  • Typhoon
  • Tsunami
  • Ring of Fire
  • Landforms & Landscapes = Variety of terrain formed by water and erosion; Coastal, peninsular, and insular East Asia = more moderate climates than interior regions
      • China (3 major rivers, Rocky to the far west, agriculture in center & SE, industry in East = transportation & access to water)
      • Japan (Archipelago = build up not out; Issues with the Ring of Fire; Tsunami 2010)
      • Mongolia (Gobi Desert influences a nomadic life)
      • Korean Peninsula (S. Korea has the access to water; N. Korea shares border with China too)
      • Taiwan (island)
  • Did you know? (LONGITUDINAL EXTENT (East to West) Comparable to the U.S.; LATITUDINAL RANGE (North to South): Comparable to Northern Quebec to Central Caribbean
  • Adapting to Natural Hazards (Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Volcanic Activity, Typhoons, Floods, and Drought)
    • Japan (earthquakes & volcanoes) builds walls to block waves
    • China’s Three Gorges Dam on Yangtze River
      • Unintended consequences (loss of history through flooding, garbage build up)
      • Amazing engineering, but so expensive!
    • Hong Kong created an island for their airport!
    • Entire region has a need for stronger building materials
