My Journey from Daporijo to Gerukamukh, Lower Subansiri Dam

We started our journey from Guwahati on the 19th of March and travelled through the north bank of the Brahmaputra River, right up to a place called Daporijo in Upper Subansiri district of Arunachal Pradesh, covering a distance of 741 kms in 22 hours.  Daporijo is situated on the banks of river Subansiri and this was the actual beginning point of our real journey! For 5 nights and 6 days, we coursed down from Daporijo to Gerukamukh in the Assam- Arunachal border.

Climate Model Predicts West Antarctic Ice Sheet Could Melt Rapidly

A view from a NASA airplane of large icebergs that have broken from the calving side of Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica in November 2014. A disaster scenario of West Antarctic ice sheet disintegration could occur much sooner than previously thought, new research suggests.
Research indicates that, due to global warming, the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) may be headed for an unavoidable and disastrous collapse, triggering a rapid rise in sea level.

For half a century, climate scientists have seen the West Antarctic ice sheet, a remnant of the last ice age, as a sword of Damocles hanging over human civilization.

The great ice sheet, larger than Mexico, is thought to be potentially vulnerable to disintegration from a relatively small amount of global warming, and capable of raising the sea level by 12 feet or more should it break up. But researchers long assumed the worst effects would take hundreds — if not thousands — of years to occur.

Now, new research suggests the disaster scenario could play out much sooner.
