They generally work long hours during the summer and somewhat shorter hours during the winter. The interactive exhibit lets visitors build their own virtual volcano, create and measure tiny earthquakes, and see what the eye of a tornado looks like.

The figure axis is the axis around which the Earth's mass is balanced and the north-south axis by about 33 feet (10 meters). "This shift in the position of the figure axis will cause the Earth to wobble a bit differently as it rotates, but will not cause a shift of the Earth's axis in space – only external forces like the gravitational attraction of the sun, moon, and planets can do that," Gross said.

Food and water security can be defined as the availability to a population of a sufficient quantity and quality of nutritious food and potable water. Where flooding occurs every year or every few years, the hazard becomes part of the landscape, and projects are sited and designed with this constraint in mind. Militaries around the world have used sand bags since the Napoleonic Wars about 250 years ago. A detailed written proposal and written interim and final reports required.

Although most tornadoes occur in the Midwest part of the United States, they can occur in numerous locations throughout the world. 25 Tornadoes are also ultimately caused by uneven heating, which results in local atmospheric pressure changes, causing a horizontally rotating mass of air. However, about two-thirds of the increase is real and the result of rises in so-called hydro-meteorological disasters, Guha-Sapir said.
