Recovery from the Indian Ocean Tsunami

   Ten years have passed since the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. For a recovery program, it is difficult to say with justification whether 10 years is a long or short duration. For the affected people, sometimes time passes very quickly. For some communities or families whose members lost their lives, time remains stagnant during the disaster period. From the recovery perspective. 10 years is a good time within which to complete physical recovery. It is also a good time during which to achieve socio-economic recovery. For psychosocial recovery, however, more time may possibly be needed. These past 10 years have taught us many important lessons. In a post-disaster scenario, the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA) was adopted in 2005. We have seen implementation of the HFA over these 10 years and how it influenced the recover}' program in different ways: institutionalization or legal framework of risk reduction, different levels of risk assessment, several education-related programs, looking at risk reduction as a part of development of initiative, enhanced response through early warning systems, and so on. The past decade has also seen a demand for greater education in risk reduction. Specific targets and measurements of progress have been incorporated. Recover)' lessons are never completed. This is an on-going process, and 10 years is a good time in which to review the past achievements and progress and to design future agenda. Thus, while the HFA 2 process is under way and we are preparing for the next world conference in Sendai. Japan, it is an important juncture from which to look back and see different recovery lessons and to contribute to future actions. This book is a modest attempt at that process...

Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Simulation of Oil Pollution Problems

   A major crude oil spill occurred following an explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) drilling platform in the northern Gulf of Mexico (GOM) on April 20, 2010. This spill differed from other significant oil spill events in that it was the largest accidental oil spill in US history. It occurred in the open ocean at a depth of 1500, and both oil and dissolved oil had the potential to affect distant areas of the GOM at the ocean surface and subsurface. This spill occurred in a significant ecosystem that supports major fisheries, and numerous endemic and migrating populations of fish, reptiles, birds, marine mammals, plankton and various sensitive benthic communities. A very large effort was initiated and sustained by the scientific and operational communities of the nations bordering the GOM to assess the extent to which oil was spreading. The oil continuously entered the deep GOM between late April and the time of final capping on July 15, 2010, spreading by means ocean and wind forcing at the surface and subsurface...

Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones

   It has been a decade since the first edition of the Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones was published. During that time the science, history, and culture of tropical cyclones around the globe has remained ever evolving, providing the meteorological world with improved forecasting techniques, altered naming systems, new intensity and duration records, and all-too-many fresh horrors. Since this work was published, the naming lists for those tropical cyclones that tear across the western North Pacific Ocean every year, for example, were entirely changed in the year 2000. Instead of purely western male and female names, they now feature identifiers that are unique to the countries and cultures most vulnerable to typhoon activity. Cambodia, for instance, submitted Sarika, which translates as "singing bird." Typhoon Singing Bird ... as a naming system, it certainly does catch the public's attention. Since this work was published, 1992's Hurricane Andrew was officially upgraded to a Category 5 hurricane; and in 2005, no fewer than 31 tropical systems originated in the North Atlantic Ocean. Among them was the most destructive and deadly tropical cyclone witnessed in the United States during the last half a century, Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Gilbert's 17-year reign as the most intense tropical cyclone yet observed in the North Atlantic basin was deposed by a late-season Hurricane Wilma, which mounted an astonishingly low central barometric pressure reading of 26.05 inches (882 mb), while improvements in forecasting and warning systems have made the various weather services' landfall and intensity predictions that much more accurate and timely, thereby reducing economic costs while enhancing life safety. In Australia in March |1999, Cyclone Vance generated the strongest wind gust yet observed on that continent; and in April 2006, Cyclone Monica produced a central pressure reading of 25.96 inches as it passed just to the north of the Australian continent, the most intense cyclone yet seen in that region of the globe. Typhoon activity in the western North Pacific Ocean has also set new records: In 1998, Super Typhoon Zeb generated a pressure reading of 25.75 inches as it blasted across the northern Pacific, while the 2002 season saw Cyclone Zoe traverse the South Pacific Ocean with a frighten-ingly low central pressure of 25.75 inches. We have even seen the formation of a mature stage tropical cyclone in the very inactive South Atlantic Ocean: Caterina of March 2004...

Aquatecture - Architecture and Water

   The relationship of a structure to its surroundings is one of fundamental engineering requirements and design cohesion. A value system is also conveyed by both structure and surroundings. In addition, the component materials used convey visual and tactile meaning. When water is included as a design element, it becomes an essential ingredient and even the quality of the water must be taken into account. An appreciation of the water amenity will reinforce a concern for natural water forms, such as streams, rivers and oceans and the life-support system that they provide. Respect for water from an architectural point of view confirms man's essential responsibility for the ecological functions that water fulfils. The term 'aquatecture* is adopted for architecture associated with the water element, either in the utilitarian, symbolic, therapeutic, leisure or visual context. Water provides a dynamic, reflective or experiential element for the built environment.
