Human Geography Models and Theories #8-18 Lesley Ugalde
AP Human & World Geography 9. Von Thunen's Agricultural Model 11. Core Periphery Model Definition Example 13. Heartland & Rimland Theory 12. Domino Theory Examples 10. Epidemiological Transition Model Definition Definition 8. Weber Model of Industrial Location this model assumes that industrialist chose a least-cost location for the development of a new industry
theory by Alfred Weber (1909) Transportation: the site chosen must entail the lowest possible cost of moving raw materials to the factory, and finished products to the market. This, according to Weber, is the most important. A model of land use made by Johann von Thunen that illustrates the trade off between land values and the distance from a central point of attraction Africa could be an example. There are many cities and it is surrounded by many agricultural areas. Definition Definition a model that explains a patter of economic growth where one region in a country develops an economic advantage Brazil is an example with the 'golden triangle' being its core and the amazon being its peripheral area Definition Example Examples Example a phase of development witnessed by a sudden and stark increase in population growth rates brought about by medical innovation the change of mortality patterns could be an example of epidemiological transition the theory that a political problem or event in one country will cause the same problems or events in other countries South Vietnam was taken by communist and so were the surrounding countries Heartland: "Who rules east Europe commands the Heartland; who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island; who rules the World-Island controls the world."
Rimland: dominant of the coastal fridges of Eurasia would provide the base for world conquest Example Nazi Germany used this theory to advance the Nazi World Domination 14. Neocolonialism Definition use of economic, political, and cultural pressures to influence other countries Example any sort of economic interaction between a country of the core and a country of the periphery can be seen as an example 15. Thomas Malthus (Population) Definition Example population increase would outpace increases in the means of subsistence if a country wishes or focuses on increasing their population their resources would also increase but not as much as the population so they then starve 16. Modernization & Dependency Theory Definition Example Modernization: a theory explaining how the industrial societies in North America 7 Western Europe developed
Dependency: a theory that explains the failure of non industrialized countries to develop economically 17. Sustainable Development Definition Example 18. World System Theory Definition Example pattern of resource use that aims to meet human needs while preserving the environment a certain area has land but they are trying their best to keep the land healthy so they make a "pattern" I'm guessing an example would be that a country is not able to develop because of the conflicts it has between the people that live there a country rises because of the causes they made a theory to state an economic unit extending beyond the boundaries
