This paper made use of the hindcast simulations from COLA-AGCMs (Center for Ocean Land Atmosphere – Atmospheric General Circulation Models) and DEMETER (Development of a European Multimodel Ensemble System for Seasonal to Interannual Prediction) ocean-atmospheric coupled models, to understand the Inter Annual Variability (IAV) of Indian summer monsoon. The observed IAV of the Indian monsoon rainfall is not adequately captured by these state-of-art models.
Geological Scenario of Bangar Area Dewas District Malwa Region, Madhya Pradesh, India
Mohammad Rizwan*, Vinita Kulshreshtha and Pramendra Dev
The paper incorporates an account of the geological characteristics of Bangar area confined to Dewas District, Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh in India. The Bangar area is comprised of three lava flows belonging to the middle Deccan Trap Volcanic Province (Upper Cretaceous to Lower Eocene age). The study area is characterized by the presence of typical Deccan trap rugged topography (isolated hills with flat tops). The salient features of lava flows have been described. The soils are varying in color, texture, moisture content and mineral composition from place to place.
Radiation Protection Consequences of the Emerging Space Tourism Industry
J. J. Bevelacqua*
The emerging space tourism industry presents the possibility for a new type of public radiation exposure situation. However, there is no regulations or guidance to define allowable radiation exposures to members of the public. This paper provides an initial set of radiation protection guidelines and recommended practices for public space exposures associated with the lowearth orbit environment.
