HIS 300 Population Pyramid and Human-Environment Interaction Assignment By: Colleen Megill Instructions: Review Chapters 8 and 9 in your text regarding the climate and population dynamics of South Asia and East Asia and respond to the questions below. Note, there are two parts to the assignment: 1) three short-answer questions, and 2) an essay (about 2 pages). Be sure to adequately and thoroughly address all questions, properly citing your text and any other resources that you use to answer the questions. You will be graded based on the content of your answers, readability (grammar/spelling), and the use of citations/references. Part 1: Short-Answer Questions (20 Points each) 1. Explain the landform and climatic processes that affect the overall climate of South Asia. What are some of the ways in which these processes affect the people who live in this region? The landforms in South Asia consist of many mountains due to its location directly on colliding tectonic plates that have been there for 60 million years. These same tectonic plates created several mountains in south Asia such as; the Himalaya Mountains, the Hindu Kush, and the Karakoram Range. There are three rivers in this region; the Indus, the Ganga, and the Brahmaputra. These rivers are created by the water flow of the melting glaciers nearby. The 3 main rivers carry dirt and silt when there is excessive flooding and “rearranges the floodplain landscape (Pulsipher, Pulsipher, Johansson, & Goodwin, 2017)”. The flooding caused by these rivers makes growing crops impossible for these people. South Asia, from June through September they take on monsoons. The summer monsoons bring in heavy rainfall and humidity. The winter monsoons bring wind and chill over South Asia. Monsoons can destroy the landforms in the region from the inconsistent rainfall. 2. Japan’s population is aging. What are some of the key implications of having an aging population? How will it affect the economy? What are some of the problems associated with fixing the problem?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
