Impacts of Flood Simulation in 3D and SWAT Environment of Terengganu River Catchment | Chapter 04 | Advances in Applied Science and Technology Vol. 1

Flood is a natural hazard  influenced by climatic and  anthropogenic factors.  The Terengganu  River catchment is located near the South China Sea has been flooding during heavy monsoon season with strongrain-bearing  winds  to  the  interior  coastal  zones  of  Kuala  Terengganu.  The  ArcSWAT2012extension  of  ArcGIS10.3  and  ArcScene10.3  has  been  used  to  design  3D  models  simulations  to predict flood risk event through the stream flow and elevation data derived from ASTER DEM. The Hydrologic Response Units (HRUs) provided the sub-basins parameters which are overlaid with the real-time simulations to determine which sub-basins are affected by flood risk. The flood animation is developed for mitigation and quick decision making for safety and evacuation of flood victims in the Terengganu River catchment. The 3D simulations produce flood risk zones models which illustrate the affected zones by the flood. The 25 sub-basins parameters have distinct characters which influence the  stream  flow,  soils,  slopes  and  land  cover.  That  represent  areas  affected  by  flood  in  Kuala Terengganu. The 25 sub-basins parameters have unique characteristics that influence the river flow, land  cover,  soil  and  slopes.  One  of  the  effective  ways  offlood  monitoring  is  to  see  it  physically occurring  or  happening  in  real-time.  The  solution  is  to  set  the  model  at  the  simulation  in  the  3D environment. The Terengganu River catchment was successfully delineated and simulated using the sub-basins to identify zones that are affected by the flood risk. The impacts of flood risk usually take place during the monsoon period, especially in Peninsular Malaysia. The Terengganu catchment is liable to flooding  during the period of monsoon. The average rainfall during flash  flood reaches to 3000mm of rain, with more than 24 hours of a continuous heavy rain shower. The flood event mostly affects peninsular Malaysia from Decembers to January.

Empowerment and Leader Member Exchange towards Organizational Citizenship Behavior Readiness among Government Workforce in Malaysia | Book Publisher International

  State agencies are among the most significant entities that represent the public's needs, and their programmes are essential to a state's and the nation's economic growth and development. State agencies have been rife by public concerns for years, as demonstrated by the Public Complaints Bureau, as problems of inefficiency in service quality and delivery have yet to meet the public's standards. With the support of 15 employees from state agencies on Malaysia's east coast, this study aims to achieve three targets. The first and second objectives are to investigate the ties between leader-member exchange (LMX) and OCB empowerment. The final aim is to define the most significant factors that affect OCB willingness. A total of 288 people took part in the survey, which was conducted using a cluster sampling process. The survey items had achieved the necessary reliability, according to the pilot test results, and some sub-dimensions were renamed after factor analysis.

Re-asserting Cultural Perspectives: Old People and New Ideas in Bole Butake’s Lake God and The Survivors and Sankie Maimo’s Succession in Sarkov | Chapter 10 | Perspectives of Arts and Social Studies Vol. 2

African cultures have undergone transformations from the colonial period to the present, often to the detriment of its cultural evolution and within the larger global community. As it were, colonial education subordinated African communalism and created in its place an anti-African spirit evident in the assimilation of western values. This did not only end up in a kind of cultural betrayal, but also posed as a serious threat to the dignity and identity of the people. Those who fall prey to this kind of cultural imperialism are the young people who are often irrationally carried away by western fashion and modes that they tend to neglect and/or forget their cultural ways of life as they join the race of “progress.” This situation has given rise to a conscious effort by creative writers to re-assert and protect African values while at the same time liberating themselves from the longstanding western effort at suppressing, controlling and dominating their thoughts particularly through n

The Utilization of Agro-Waste: A Nanobiotechnology Point of View | Chapter 10 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 5

Aims: To review the utilization of agro-waste in the eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles and their biomedical, catalytic and industrial applications. Study Design: A review. Place and Duration of Study: This review was carried out in the interim of three weeks exploiting all relevant data, literature and publications where necessary. Methodology: Profound gathering of literatures/publications and reviews were employed with all carefulness and professional courtesy; enough useful information were gathered over time. The introduction emphasizes the dawn of science and technology, when great ideas were still latent later leading to the advent of history changing innovations like the completion of human genome and then the birth of nanotechnology. Although, nanotechnology had been known decades been popularized by Richard Feynman in his talks in the year 1959; and in this present dispensation, nanotechnology has been a solution to many intricate challenges/ t
