Acknowledgements & Legal Stuff



First, a huge thank you to my A-Level geography teachers Mrs Beard, Mr Wilson and Miss Rule. They’re fantastic teachers and the source of a lot of this content. A further thank you to Mrs Steepe. Although she never taught me, she no doubt played an integral role in organising the Geography A-Level. Finally, a thanks to Mrs Cook—my Yr. 10/11 Geography teacher—because she convinced me to take Geography at A-Level and was fantastic throughout those two years.

*sigh* Do not plagiarise. Not only are you violating the site’s license, you are cheating and that is scummy.

It isn’t a good idea. I’ve already done my Geography A-Levels and I used a lot of this content in my essays. If you use it too, it will be flagged by plagiarism detection systems very quickly.

A store is a way of storing water in a drainage basin. There’s a couple of different types of water storage. One is vegetation storage. Vegetation lives off of water right? Well, any vegetation in a drainage basin will take up precipitation and store it, simple. The vegetation storage is the total volume of water stored in the vegetation in a basin at one time.
