Reconstruction of the Historic Bam Citadel After Quake, Iran, 2009

Reconstruction of the Historic Bam Citadel After Quake, Iran, 2009

Taken on 2009-12-10

The 2003 Earthquake in Bam destroyed more than 80 percent of this historic citadel. As a World Heritage Site, several countries are cooperating in the reconstruction. Japan, Italy, and France are among countries which cooperated from the beginning. Japan has granted some US$1.3 million to Iran for the reconstruction, and has supported this project by sending equipment and creating the 3D plan of Bam Citadel to increase the accuracy of the renovation. Italy has funded US$300,000, and has dispatched a team of experts to restore the citadel's main tower. France has provided the map of Bam Citadel. The World Bank has also granted a large sum of money to this project.

Cyclone Catarina

Cyclone Catarina

Taken on 2004-03-26

Before the year 2004, only two tropical cyclones had ever been noted in the South Atlantic Basin, and no hurricane. However, a circulation center well off the coast of southern Brazil developed tropical cyclone characteristics and continued to intensify as it moved westward. The system developed an eye and apparently reached hurricane strength on Friday, March 26, before eventually making landfall late on Saturday, March 27, 2004. The crew of the International Space Station was notified of the cyclone and acquired excellent photographs of the storm just as it made landfall on the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina (the storm has been unofficially dubbed “Cyclone Catarina”). Note the clockwise circulation of Southern Hemisphere cyclones, the well-defined banding features, and the eyewall of at least a Category 1 system. The coastline is visible under the clouds in the upper left corner of the image.

Effects of 2016 Taiwan Earthquake; Tainan, Taiwan, February 2016

Taken on 2016-02-06

An earthquake struck a region to the northeast of Pintung City in south Taiwan on the 6th of February 2016. The earthquake, causing widespread damage and 117 deaths, had a moment magnitude of 6.4. The effects were more devastating in Tainan, approximately 300 km south of Taipei, than the epicentre owing to the soft nature of the soil which allowed surface ground to be amplified, thus creating more devastating effects in Tainan.

Taken on 2010-10-22

The floods in Pakistan began in late July 2010, resulting from heavy monsoon rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan regions of Pakistan, which affected the Indus River basin. Approximately one-fifth of Pakistan's total land area was underwater, approximately 796,095 square kilometres (307,374 sq mi). According to Pakistani government data, the floods directly affected about 20 million people, mostly by destruction of property, livelihood and infrastructure, with a death toll of close to 2,000. The United States initially provided six US Army CH-47 Chinook helicopters from their duty in Afghanistan. On 12 August, it provided two more CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters to assist Pakistan Army in their relief efforts. The two helicopters are first of 19 helicopters that US Defense Secretary Robert Gates urgently ordered for Pakistan in next few days.
