A flood of lessons 21.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Flash floods, record rains, deaths and miseries unprecedented in scale, Bengalureans have seen them all. A dramatic weather change played havoc on the roads and in their homes alike. Now, when the monsoon fades away, isn't it time to ask what went so horribly wrong. Why, despite warning, the authorities were caught so unprepared. Armed with a hundred telemetric rain gauges spread across the city, the Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC) insists it had delivered regular, location-specific rain alerts through its Whatsapp group 'Be Ready Bengaluru.' That group has BBMP ward-level engineers, corporators, joint commissioners of the Palike, BMTC, BWSSB, traffic police and fire forces. Warnings ignored But, as one looks back, such forecasts made no difference to Bengalureans. Over a dozen people died, hundreds of localities were flooded for days. Roads are in a mess, drains clogged and in total disrepair. The message is clear: Despite giant strides in technology, the country's IT hub has ...

Crash in sea turtle births 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The mystery behind a dramatic fall in the number of leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) hatchlings in the US Virgin Islands remains unsolved, despite the latest efforts of researchers. Rising temperatures and changes in rainfall patterns — the top two suspects — don't seem to be connected to the decline, according to a study published recently. The finding contradicts previous work, leaving researchers scratching their heads over what could be happening. The latest study focused on a nesting beach in the Sandy Point National Wildlife Refuge on St Croix in the Caribbean Sea. The researchers found that about 74% of the leatherback sea turtle eggs laid there in 1990 hatched, but that rate had plummeted to 55% by 2010. The study analysed detailed temperature and precipitation data at these nests over the 20 years, and found no corresponding trend in the climate change factors that could fully account for the decline. The researchers reported their results in Royal Society Open ...
