Japan hikes volcanic warning level, prepares to evacuate Kuchinoerabujima island 15.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
Japan hiked the volcanic warning level on one southern island to the second highest on Wednesday, mandating that residents should prepare for evacuation, though an actual eruption at the peak had yet to be detected. Japan's Meteorological Agency said that volcanic earthquakes and sulfur emissions had increased at a peak on Kuchinoerabujima island, located roughly 1,000 km (621 miles) southwest of Tokyo, and raised its warning level to 4 out of 5. The mountain erupted explosively three years ago, sending ash and smoke thousands of metres into the sky and releasing potentially deadly pyroclastic flows, flows of super-heated ash and gas, that reached the sea. At that time, the island's entire population evacuated but eventually returned. Some 100 people live there at present. Japan has 110 active volcanoes and monitors 47 constantly. When 63 people were killed in the volcanic eruption of Mount Ontake in September 2014, it was the country's worst such toll for nearly 90 years. In January, a member of Japan's ...

Country lost one-third of its coastline from erosion, gained almost as much: Report 12.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Natural causes such as cyclones and waves, as well as human activities like construction have led to nearly one-third of a large part of India's coastline to be eroded in the last 26 years, but almost an equal area has been added because of new sediment deposits, according to a government report. The National Centre for Coastal Research surveyed 6,031 kilometres of India's 7,517-kilometre coastline from 1990 to 2016, and found that 33 per cent of it has witnessed erosion, most of it along the eastern coast facing the Bay of Bengal, with West Bengal recording the highest erosion. At the same time, 29 per cent of the surveyed coastline saw an accretion, or gain in deposits. "Erosion and accretion are complementary to each other. If the sand and sediments have drifted from one side, it must accumulate somewhere," said M V Ramana Murthy, director of NCCR and one of the authors of the report. The report says that 2,156.43 kilometres of the country's surveyed coastline faced erosion, while 1,941.24 kilometres ...
