Geomorphic, Tectonic, and Geologic Controls of Geohazards Induced by Nepal’s 2015 Gorkha Earthquake. Science. 2015, 350. DOI:10.1126/science.aac8353.

Abstract: The Gorkha earthquake (M 7.8) on 25 April 2015 and later aftershocks struck South Asia, killing ~9,000 and damaging a large region. Supported by a large campaign of responsive satellite data acquisitions over the earthquake disaster zone, our team undertook a satellite image survey of the earthquakes’ induced geohazards in Nepal and China and an assessment of the geomorphic, tectonic, and lithologic controls on quake-induced landslides. Timely analysis and communication aided response and recovery and informed decision makers. We mapped 4,312 co-seismic and post-seismic landslides. We also surveyed 491 glacier lakes for earthquake damage, but found only 9 landslide-impacted lakes and no visible satellite evidence of outbursts. Landslide densities correlate with slope, peak ground acceleration, surface downdrop, and specific metamorphic lithologies and large plutonic intrusions.

九三学社首届全国青年论坛征文

新时代九三青年的责任和担当

九三学社甘肃省委 南卓铜

百年前梁启超先生曾说:少年智则国智,少年富则国富,少年强则国强。胡锦涛书记在十八大报告中指出:中国特色社会主义事业是面向未来的事业,需要一代又一代有志青年持续奋斗。新时代的九三学社青年社员秉承“民主与科学”的宗旨,自觉践行社会主义核心价值观,承担民族复兴、祖国建设的大任,勤学、修德、明辨、笃实,为中国梦的伟大构想做出自己的贡献。

九三青年有当代青年的一般特点,也有鲜明的自身特点。当代青年的主要特点是:(1)追求独立、张扬个性,独立、自主是当代青年的基本标签;(2)多数受过高等教育,受多元文化和思想影响,有强烈的叛逆思想;(3)有强大的创造力,快速接受新事物,时刻准备做出一翻事业;(4)有强烈的社会参与意识、责任感和使命感。九三青年多数来自科技和教育界别,受教育程度高,在专业领域创新能力强。九三青年加入九三学社,都是抱着知识报国的想法,一些人已经在本专业领域做出了可喜的成绩,希冀通过九三学社这个平台得以参政议政,推进社会进步。相比于普通青年,九三青年拥有更精湛的专业技能、更强烈的社会参与意识和更广阔的政治舞台。九三青年往往熟练掌握外语和互联网技术,很多人甚至有国外留学经历,比普通青年更容易接触欧美国家价值观,在看到社会上发生的一些不公现象时,更容易陷入困惑和迷茫之中,产生怀才不遇等负面情绪。因此,新时代的九三青年在成长过程中必须坚守社会主义核心价值观,扬长避短,担当起时代赋予的重任。

当代青年是社会主义建设大业的主力军,九三青年更应成为社会主义建设的领军人才,不仅要做好本职工作,还要始终热情主动承担社会责任、积极参政议政。
