Section A
 

The processes of the Rock Cycle have been active for millions of years producing a larger variety of rocks. Britain has a rich and varied rock formation in different parts of England, Wales and Scotland.
Using your knowledge and understanding of the three basic types of rocks- Igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks, you are required to research on the following rock formations in Britain.

 
Investigate the geological time of formations and typical area(s)in Britain, where these rocks are found, along with an analysis of their properties which are relevant to their use in construction.
 

Basalt
Granite
Sandstone
Limestone

 
 

The British Geological Survey (BGS) reported that there has been a five-fold increase in reported landslides in the UK last year. Investigate any two case studies on geological and man-made causes respectively for landslides and suggest mitigation measures to prevent the landslides.

 
 

With the help of a case study, reflect on how the mining activities lead to contamination of ground water and critically analyse the physical, chemical and Environmental effects of mining.

 
 

Draw the geological section from the given data :

 
 
 

Describe the Engineering problems associated with the presence of karstic topography below ground. Reflect on how it could be triggered by man-made disturbances and change in drainage patterns. Suggest suitable measures to mitigate the effects.
