The northeastern part of the Indian Ocean, i.e. the Bay of Bengal (BoB) is located near some of the most complicated tectonic zones on the Earth. An earthquake of magnitude ~6.0 occurred on 21 May 2014 near the coast of Odisha. Occasional moderate to large earthquakes in BoB highlight the need to study precise hypocentre locations, and focal mechanisms to understand the cause of intraplate seismicity in BoB.

This paper deals with utilization of flyash to vegetation programmed in abandoned open cast mines of Jharia coalfields, Dhanbad, Jharkhand. Its physical properties are beneficial in vegetation purposes in abandoned opencast mines of Jharia coalfields.

In India huge amount of flyash is generated from coal-fired thermal power plants, causing several disposal-related problems. The disposal of coal ash is a matter of great concern nowadays as it requires huge area of land at the disposal site but also adversely affects surface, sub surface environment. The present paper discusses the several environmental aspects of coal ash disposal.

In India, of the 49 million hectares (mha) of acid soil, 25 mha has pH below 5.5. Considerable genetic variability for aluminium (Al) tolerance exists in pea seedlings at intraspecific level, which has allowed the selection of tolerant and productive
genotypes for acidic soil.
