Economic inequality, societal polarization, and intensifying environmental dangers are the top three trends that will shape global developments over the next ten years — not least of all this year says this report.

Through investigation and analysis of geological conditions and mechanical parameters of the Taziping landslide, the finite volume method was adopted, and, the rheological model was adopted to simulate the landslide and avalanche entire mass movement process. The present paper adopted the GIS platform to simulate the mass movement process before and after treatment.

HOWRAH: Irrigation minister Rajib Banerjee and Howrah's mayor Rathin Chakraborty visited ward number one at Badhaghat Chara area under Howrah Municipal Corporation following reports that river Hoog

Heavy snowfall received in several parts of Himachal Pradesh threw normal life out of gear as roads were blocked and transmission lines were snapped forcing people to live without power and daily s

Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had earlier demanded a Rs 5,064-crore relief package from the Centre to tide over the challenges posed by crop loss due to drought in most parts of the state and excess

Backward trajectories of individual Asian dust storm (ADS) events were calculated using the hybrid single particle Lagrangian integrated trajectory (HYSPLIT) at four representative stations in Korea. A total of 743 ADS events and associated 2229 (endings of altitudes at 1000 m, 1500 m, and 2000 m per ADS event) backward trajectories from four stations were traced from January 2003 to August 2015. Regardless of the locations of the observed stations and the threshold time divide, recent increase of ADS occurrence rate was statistically significant in 99.9 % confidence limit.

Agartala: A moderate intensity earthquake measuring 5.7 on the Richter Scale struck Tripura this afternoon, triggering landslides in the hill state and jolting the country’s Northeast.

Emergency responders often have to operate and respond to emergency situations during dynamic weather conditions, including floods. This paper demonstrates a novel method using existing tools and datasets to evaluate emergency responder accessibility during flood events within the city of Leicester, UK.

Research of the geophysical electromagnetic phenomena with seismic activity is important for hazard-resistant strategy. Many papers which indicate the existence of geophysical electromagnetic phenomena associated with earthquakes are reported frequently. Anomalous propagation in the radio waves is sometimes related with earthquakes. In previous paper, authors proposed a new concept to estimate the relation between earthquakes and anomalous line-of-sight propagation in VHF band by statistical approach.
