The purpose of this study is to analyze the impact of the catastrophe which occurred at 10a.m. on Friday 15th October 2010 in Eurotown. The study will discourse foremost catastrophe extenuation, and secondly it will discourse readiness of Eurotown. Thirdly it will concentrate on constructing up Eurotown, fourthly it will contrast Bhopal vs. Eurotown, and eventually it explores disaster intercession theories.

Catastrophe extenuation

Extenuation steps are to cut down exposure, i.e. the impact of catastrophe on vulnerable people, lame building, and deficiency of ownerships ( Asiatic Disaster Reduction Centre ( ASRL ) , 2005, Cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) ) . The tabular array in appendix-1 shows complecting between different Eurotown resources to be considered in catastrophe extenuation.

Reasons of extenuation

The grounds of holding extenuation steps is to look into the hereafter contented sweetening with changeless attending of public consciousness, documenting old successful hazard decrease actions, use of fiscal betterment to upgrade Eurotown capacity and to hold proper engagement into Fieldss of hazard to cut down the losingss of people and belongingss. Furthermore, likelihood decrease can be achieved by measuring hazard and jeopardies designation. And resiliency of people can be developed to get by with the alterations may accrue of catastrophe daze. As the following are mitigation grounds for Eurotown:

Provide electrical replacement resources.

Relocate the mill.

Increase H2O resources.

Improve safety ordinances ( constructing pods ) .

Enhance public consciousness.

These grounds are interlinked with a figure of local subscribers which are:

Political willingness

Necessities handiness

Urban enlargement

Public cognition

Showing the effect of root causes merged with unsuitable fortunes which vary from micro-social issues to economical disclosure and political determination. All these have an consequence on vulnerable groups of the community ( Mountain, 2010 ) , which are:

Aged

Womans

Child

Minority

Political willingness

Public cognition

Aged

Womans

Child

Minority

Urban Expansion

Necessities handiness handiness

Figure 2.1 This illustration shows facets set uping decrease of likeliness of vulnerably groups.

Political willingness

Piers, B, et Al. stated: ‘aˆ¦effective execution of catastrophe extenuation requires [ governments ] strong direction to incorporate all elements into cohesive form ‘ . Pull offing catastrophe extenuation will beef up the development of edifice codifications and the appropriate use of land zoning in analogue to the enforcement of statute law and instruction. The sweetenings of community consciousness will significance heighten the function of determination devising in political ( 1994:223-224 ) . In add-on, the grasp by authorities leaders and NGO ‘s to the common persons can better community partnership. Likewise, ( Lewis, 1999 ) and ( McEntire, 2007 ) both agrees in looking into alterations in political function to heighten peoples life. Therefore, conveying in new political leaders nominated from the vulnerably groups can act upon determinations tie ining new ordinances to protect and develop vulnerably groups by assorted plans with the aid of NGO ‘s.

Urban enlargement

Incoherent allotment of indispensable installations as end consequences of political, social-economic and deficiency of implementing local legalization lead to revolutionise the population growing and development of idiot countries in Eurotown as they experience possible exposure to hazard. Furthermore, any climatic alterations can bring forth an appropriate state of affairs of hazard to exposure people ( Alexander, 2000 ) . Therefore, an appropriate re-planning by local authorization of land districting distribution with safety steps put in head the protection of vulnerable groups and repositing mills to the outer countries of Eurotown.

Necessities handiness

Food and H2O to vulnerable people is highly of import during catastrophes as the past the past decennary prove that nutrient resources of frogmans harvests are indispensable to fabricate grocery during catastrophes. Leading this attack by politicians in back uping agribusiness will open the manner to market leaders to put in this country ( Coppola, D. , 2007: 345-346 ) . Therefore, a recommendation of distribution nutrient and H2O in militias shops next to refuge countries with straightforward handiness. In add-on, the modesty shops capacity should cover the catastrophe and station catastrophe stages to obtain minimal single day-to-day demands.

Public cognition

An upgrade public consciousness can be achieved by holding efficient function of instruction and media ( audio-visual, publications, and newspapers ) to make all sections of society to present preventative steps and warnings massages instantly with a usher to the sites of public assistance. The use of progress engineering in early warning systems can cut down the spread between diverse authorities bureaus and NGO ‘s to move with efficiency to response to any emerging catastrophe. Besides local authorization should hold strategic planning to force investings into development such early warning engineering to vulnerable people ( Coppola, D. , 2007: 345-346 ) . Therefore, a recommendation to do usage of telecommunication engineering as educational tool, warning usher and as safety direction during catastrophe to command significant Numberss of people, as bulk uses engineering from cyberspace to mobile phones that can be reach expedite via orbiter.

Anticipation of future catastrophe

Preparedness is constructing capacity for rapid response to catastrophes and to larn efficaciously methods of catastrophe direction prior to the catastrophe. Appendix-2 shows the relationship between Causes and public services.

Organization engagements

As UK authorities ( Emergency Preparedness-Civil Contingencies Act ( EP-CCA ) , 2010 ) provinces: ‘aˆ¦ related activities: expectancy, appraisal, bar, readying, response and recovery ‘ these are the chief elements during exigency readiness stage. Besides they are relevant to bureaus to integrate in the eventuality program for each organisation in Category 1 ( military, police force, fire service, NHS, local governments ) and there responsibilities are:

Conduct the exigency program.

Educate populace of catastrophe and its safety steps.

Enhance co-ordination with local authorization and bureaus.

Develop good quality communicating between diverse organisations.

And the secondary organisation are Category 2 ( conveyance, telecommunication, H2O ) there responsibilities are to back up Category 1 depending on type of accident. The cardinal elements to accomplish finest consequences are to pattern eventuality programs by affecting NGO ‘s and different groups of society ( CCA Part 1, 2 ) . Additionally, after confirmation Torahs by politicians during extenuation stage readiness considered an active stage of pre-disaster ( Freeman, P. , Kunreuther, H. , 2002 ) . Therefore, a recommendation to exercisings, re-evaluate and develop the eventuality programs.

Capacity encouragement

Capacity is the sweetening of soaking up of catastrophe magnitude which is the purpose of puting eventuality programs to preparation. Undertaking simulation exercisings of these programs may demo countries of restriction ( work force, equipment ) and may necessitate to cut down the possibility of malfunction, re-evaluate, and implement the programs. In add-on, plans should see partnership within the community to better the preparedness of the people with pattern of hazards sensing and early warning systems as the people cognition of emptying paths and alleviation sites. Furthermore, the being of the people consciousness of the ways the media stuffs and direction is given some hope, where is the best manner excite the heads of the people preventative steps for catastrophe events. However, the readiness lies in dedication and a serious politician that blend people to this issue turn out to be hard because of inaction of establishments and the clip between each catastrophe. In add-on, geographical state of affairs of the state relationship, political stableness, and atmospheric alterations are caused by planetary warming events that can be held within the eventuality programs. ( Freeman, P. , Kunreuther, H. , 2002 ) .

Medical proviso

In catastrophes wellness and medical attention installations consider of import to many vulnerable groups. In Eurotown there were two infirmaries to cover a population of one-fourth million, although merely one infirmary that is located in town Centre had accident and exigency and it was exposed to break of the discontinuity of electrical with troubles to make from other parts of the deficient conveyance. As consequence, a force per unit area on the exigency section, transit installations and Bridgess traversing from the south portion of the river has increased ( Mountain, 2010 ) .

( Daniels et al. , 2006 ) they stress on the betterment of wellness and medical attention abilities to forestall any spread of diseases as will to get by with monolithic demand during catastrophes ; taking into history the period of readying for catastrophes. In add-on, psychological facet of vulnerable people from catastrophes is the period of post-traumatic emphasis for people to loss a member of household, relations, friends or anything consider valuably. Therefore, plans to rehabilitate vulnerable people to return to better conditions.

NGO ‘s and society

NGO ‘s drama of import function when it comes into contact with vulnerable people of societies, as these organisations set a figure of plans taking to develop groups and persons who are at hazard prior to catastrophe and after-disaster. A strong bond between these organisations and civil society can lend to extenuate hard fortunes ( maltreatments, instability, and deficiency of security ) to vulnerable people during catastrophe. Battles of NGO ‘s in active function to analyze the state of affairs of vulnerable people can back up local governments to understand there state of affairss and to set a figure of plans for the rehabilitation of these vulnerable groups and to give them aid ( Benson, C. , Twigg, J. , Myers, M. 2001 ) .

Constructing up Eurotown: catastrophe recovery

Neal, D. ( 2007, 245 ) describe recovery: ‘Recovery activates focus on attempts to convey the accomplished country back to its normal or predisaster province. ‘ reconstructing life to better state of affairs after the impact relays on Reconstruction and rehabilitation in two phases the first one is short-run and the other is long-run plans. Therefore, the importances of placing the chief precedences of recovery to return life to normal are:

Rehabilitee the vulnerable people.

Reconstruct the damaged countries to its normal state of affairs or better.

Reconsider new strategic planning and enhance ordinances to avoid future catastrophe.

Develop people cognition of catastrophes through instruction and media.

Develop charitable constructs to society to back up people at demand during and after catastrophe clip.

Short-run healing

The effect of detonation to the environing country demands appropriate Restoration and mending from amendss and remotion of the prostration edifice leftovers. Likewise, local authorization and H2O intervention have to clean decontaminate H2O in H2O supply systems. This phase starts in a consecutive line following catastrophe ; this phase purpose is to supply the necessary demands to persons such: wellness, nutrient, H2O, sanitation, and safeties. In add-on, while retrieving from catastrophe it is the best clip to better the extenuation steps and readiness programs of possible hereafter catastrophes ( James, E. , 2008 ) .

Health attention is highly of import as it is related to cut down the spread of diseases and the proviso of medical support to vulnerable people. In add-on, to forestall spread of diseases a hunt and deliverance of people and immediate remotion of dead organic structures from collapsed constructions environing the detonation is critical ( James, E. , 2008 ) . In appendix-2 a tabular array shows affected infirmaries and other indispensable edifices from electrical dislocation.

Furthermore, a force per unit area on wellness installations from the deficiency of nutrient and associableness as it is the indispensable day-to-day demands that can do wellness jobs and illness specially to kids as there unsusceptibility to diseases deteriorate finally. However, to forestall malnutrition feeding plans can be introduced by an incorporating of NGO ‘s ( James, E. , 2008 ) .

Water was contaminated by mixture of chemicals so it penetrated through the H2O intervention and spread to the full Eurotown homes and public edifices. Therefore, the solution to this job is to utilize H2O filtrating by natural stuff ( gravel and sand ) , the other solution is to disinfect H2O through boiling H2O for little measure, where as big H2O measure needs adding chlorine compounds with specific ratios. However, these solutions depend on grade of the taint of H2O ( James, E. , 2008 ) . As a consequence, it is recommended to believe of future reservoirs such as big H2O storages, H2O armored combat vehicle trucks, and natural Wellss.

Safeties countries have certain specification to be suited to busy people during their reformation to normal life, which are as follow:

Wind way.

Refuge size.

Environment and site conditions

Drain system.

Number of people enduring.

In add-on, the importance of supplying shelters ( collapsible shelters, semi-permanent shelters, and lasting construction ) within refuge country for affected people by the impact performs as protection against rough conditions alterations. As these shelters are impermanent places to these effected people, where as the kiping stuff, cooking installation and healthful to be provided ( James, E. , 2008: 45 ) .

Long-run healing

The micro-economy of the Eurotown people are depending on agriculture income and that needs a development plans in the long tally to heighten and beef up the abilities to develop separately to obtain other resorts by holding support from NGO ‘s which is supported by givers and fiscal Bankss. Additionally, plans to affect people into plans such as work for money to derive stableness and securesness can forestall colzas and offense ( James, E. , 2008 ) .

NGO ‘s can affect people of society to form and develop voluntary plants at alleviation phase to back up vulnerable people. The alleviation procedure is a slow and drawn-out development which dependant on each single psychological province to come back to normal state of affairs. As consequence of the amendss to people and their propernesss an alteration to the overall strategic planning that consist of ordinances, economic system and method of covering with poorness countries that have high potency to be at hazard of future catastrophe. However, instructions plans can alter people by promote them to seek safer topographic points to cut down likeliness of people every bit good as concentrating on wellness safeguards in poorness countries. ( James, E. , 2008 ) .

Bhopal vs. Eurotown

This portion of the study will contrast Eurotown catastrophe with similar instance of Bhopal catastrophe which faced a leak of toxic gas. Firstly it will depict the town of Bhopal ; secondly it will research the pre-disaster daze. Third it will explicate the catastrophe daze response, and eventually it will look post-disaster daze.

The capital of Madhya Pradesh

Figure 4.1 Bhopal location within India map ( Map of India, n.d. ) Bhopal is the capital of Madhya Pradesh situated in center of India. And it has population of 800,000 during the twelvemonth of catastrophe ( 1984 ) . In nature it is located 500 metres above sea-level, has two lakes, and surrounded by wooded countries. The north country of the Bhopal is considered the old town where vulnerably people are populating and depending on basic occupations ( Eckerman, I. , 2005: 12-13 ) .

Pre-disaster daze

During the 1960 ‘s India agribusiness harvest growing quickly this forced the authorities to make up one’s mind to hold an external support of ( Union Carbide Corporation ( UCC ) ) mill to fabricate pesticides from USA after unsuccessful fabricating the pesticides locally. Union Carbide India Limited ( UCIL ) is the subordinate company of UCC and they control and supervise it. It started in 1969 to fabricate carbamate pesticides bit by bit until industry of methyl isocyanate ( MIC ) in subsequently 1980 as UCC had designed the mill unit with 3 big armored combat vehicles of MIC ( 610, 611, and 619 as back-up storage ) including C monoxide and phosgene in fabricating procedure in which the production exceeded the market demands. Furthermore, the gross revenues of pesticide were falling because of the think ofing drouth along with pesticides market competition. As effects UCIL determined to cut-off sweeps by discontinue some mill maps and dispatching qualified employees ( Eckerman, I. , 2005: 22-25 ) .

This fiscal emphasis forced the UCIL direction to hold accommodations with new nonsubjective to cutting down cost through set abouting unsafe technique of fabricating MIC and ignore the readying quality of new employees as they trained for few hebdomads and obtaining six oral cavities developing certification for there relationship with leaders in UCIL, so they gain critical place to take charge off within the works. As consequence of unknowingness of these employees have increases the jeopardies. In add-on, any petitions of sweetening of safety by employees are notify to go forth the occupation.

Since 1974 varies industrial accidents of workers grow as they where working in toxic atmosphere alternatively of appropriate machinery with denial of supplying any personal protective equipment ( PPE ) . As India governments allowed contaminated industrial unit to be built up. Which UCC took advantage and implement in UCIL the safety committednesss below criterions. Therefore, safety declined lower than the minimal leading to overlook the new developed land districting in 1975 in stipulating outer portion of Bhopal as industrial country by local authorization and construct MIC in the metropolis. Furthermore, safety systems were neglecting as armored combat vehicle 610 should non transcend the filling degree and armored combat vehicle 619 was non pressured and there were lack of observations for armored combat vehicle ‘s temperatures ( Eckerman, I. , 2005: 22-25 ) .

The difference in effects Between Eurotown and Bhopal is that the Bhopal authorization neglected the duties of safety ordinances on the mill as it has a history of several accidents along with neglect of being shifted to the new industrial country as per the municipality new town planning and the mill build MIC units with big storages alternatively of little 1s. Whereas, Eurotown catastrophe extenuation had important utility solutions established to understate the hazard.

Catastrophe daze response

The catastrophe took topographic point at 8:30 p.m. on the 2nd of December 1984 in UCIL mill during cleaning pipe lines by H2O and it should come out from the liquidizers alternatively it began conglomerating into MIC armored combat vehicle 610. As consequence, at 10 p.m. H2O reacted with methylcarbamyl chloride ( MCC ) and phosgene bring forthing hydrochloric acid ( HCL ) and it reacted with metal taking to increase heat, temperature, and force per unit area of gas within the armored combat vehicle. The exigency response to the leak was inconstantly weak by UCIL direction doing warning serene to be turned on and so turned off several times. In add-on, the fire service and constabularies were given blurred massages from the UCIL direction stating that they are commanding the escape where they are non until 3 ante meridiem they admitted that leak is out of there control good police had to evacuating people from the effected countries prior to there acknowledgment. Consequently, during this clip a mixture of toxic gases have spread to the ambiance from the mill armored combat vehicle and blowhole as the heavier content of toxic gases descend to the land degree and lighter toxic gases raised and the air current moved the toxic cloud at velocity of 1.95-3.90 knots over the old town and new town without dismaying people inhabit these residential countries. Furthermore, people began to hold symptoms of purging, oculus Burnss, smothering and people start to go through off of inspiration of toxic gases ( Eckerman, I. , 2005: 22-25 ) .

The difference in effects during catastrophe response compared to Eurotown catastrophe responses without a uncertainty shows that there are non any pre-planning of such impact, deficiency of coordination between different parties and improper efficaciousness function of public consciousness. As consequence it affected half million people, animate beings, environment, and forest. Whereas, In Eurotown the response was instantly and programs put in action with holding alternate programs. As consequence the figure of effected is less 50 people.

Post-disaster daze

As the catastrophe ended in the following twenty-four hours its calamity become seeable as 2,000 people were everyplace in places, roads were died, others were injured, and the figure of deceases rose dramatically. At this phase it is hard to return people to normal statues of such daze of there lost 1s by the major devastation caused by toxic gases ( Mitchell, J.K. , 1996: 127 ) .

The deficit of information by the infirmary physician ‘s on MIC gas intervention lead to detain the medical recovery of monolithic Numberss of victims from the catastrophe, which took few yearss as MIC intervention range to infirmary. Furthermore, wellness system had failed to enter the figure of deceases and hurts, consequently it act upon accurate heath informations to acknowledge future extenuation, and readiness of MIC concerns. The NGO ‘s took portion in back uping the local authorization and infirmaries to over come the significant figure of people to hold intervention by set uping clinics in the affected countries from the catastrophe ( Mitchell, J.K. , 1996: 128 ) .

The other affects of this catastrophe is a 650 occupation places were vanished as the UCIL stopped working taking local people to populate with no any income. The Indian authorities started to back up the victims by giving them modest sum of money to retrieve from the daze. However, these sums did non alter what victims went through. As consequence, this catastrophe bodyguard India authorities to better the ordinance related to industrial jeopardies to be monitored and to hold safety changes or sweetenings within any mill by governmental inspectors. In add-on, people had more rights to halt against any mill that produces pollution ( Mitchell, J.K. , 1996 ) .

The difference in effects after catastrophe recovery compared to Eurotown catastrophe responses without a uncertainty shows that there are non knowledge of the MIC interventions, which create victims for many old ages and deceases. However it had an international focal points on the manmade catastrophe and development of new researches and theories. Whereas, In Eurotown the recovery was in two phases of short clip mending as safety countries where provided there installations with the aid of local municipality and NGO ‘s to rehabilitee the vulnerable groups and the development of new plans for the long term healing.

Catastrophe intercession theories

Hazard

Schneiderbauer, S. & A ; Ehrlich, D. ( 2004 ) cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defined hazard as: ‘The chance of harmful effects or expected losingss ensuing from a given jeopardy to a given component at danger or hazard over a specified clip period. ‘

And other definition by Disaster Recovery Journal ( DRJ ) ( n.d. ) cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) province: ‘Potential for exposure to loss. Risks, either man-made or natural, are changeless. The possible is normally measured by its chance in old ages. ‘

These description of hazard shed visible radiation on understanding the catastrophe as explores the outlook of injury to people by a jeopardies from natural to manmade catastrophes and flooring effects. Hazard construct is an appraisal of the likeliness of expounding to any possible injury to people. So, important cognition of the hazard must be identifies a figure of steps to extinguish the potencies of jeopardy results. In Eurotown hazard can be identified in the effects of fume distributing from fire in mill on south homes and detonation of the LPG armored combat vehicle on 1km environing country. In add-on, dwellers expose to infections by consumption of contaminated H2O. Therefore, admiting hazard construct compose catastrophe intercession through catastrophe stages such as bettering and developed ways to construct aminoalkanes at stage of extenuation steps and heighten the programs of countries at hazard by consciousness and regular preparation at countries at possible hazard at the readiness stage.

Hazard

European Environment Agency ( 2005 ) cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defines jeopardy as: ‘A endangering event, or the chance of happening of a potentially detrimental phenomenon within a given clip period and country ‘ .

Cutter, S.L. ( 2001 ) : cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defines ‘A jeopardy, in the broadest term, is a menace to people and the things they value. Hazards have a potency to them ( they could go on ) , but they besides include the existent impact of an event on people or topographic points. Hazards arise from the interaction between societal, technological, and natural systems. ”

These accounts of jeopardies are the badness of a catastrophe and its volume of harm which can give all right development of effects may accrue. As in Eurotown the jeopardy are the event of fire happening at the mill because of electrical break-down, this had it impact on nearby H2O intervention and crated other jeopardies such contaminated H2O, toxic fume that spread all over environing country taking to increase hazard of people exposing to danger. Therefore, being cognizant of hazarder ‘s facets and its effects can make better pattern, processs, and ordinances put in topographic point at extenuation stage to extinguish jeopardies. An debut of appropriate engineering, equipment and acknowledge the proper methods to retrieve from such jeopardy at preparedness stage to obtain good quality response.

Vulnerability

Alwang, J. , Siegel, P. B. & A ; Jorgensen, S. L. ( 2001 ) : cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defines: “ The insecurity of the wellbeing of persons, families or communities in the face of a altering environment ” . Moser & A ; Holland ( 1989 ) quoted in Alwang et Al. ( 2001 ) . Besides they describe exposure: “ Sum uping support and environmental literature: exposure is the exposure of persons or groups to livelihood emphasis as a consequence of environmental alteration. ”

From these descriptions of exposure it is clear that the focal points on the elements ( groups, persons, belongingss, goods ) of critical agony from the effects of any sort of catastrophe are in extremely likeliness. As for Eurotown the bulk of people populating in countries below the river were the first to be effected by the electrical deficit, so when fire started at the mill smoke spread to the same country which increases the possibility of likeliness of people populating in these countries. In add-on, the handiness to public services such as the infirmary with exigency section in the metropolis Centre from these countries is going more hard as these people dependence on public conveyance which has uneffective capacity to cover demands every bit good as the few Bridgess connected to metropolis Centre. Therefore, intervenes in the catastrophe to protect these people along with belongingss which will be exposed to damage at extenuation stage of catastrophe, a procedure of naming all the possibilities of hazards and jeopardies that may be exposed to them by any sort of catastrophe. Furthermore, development of these people and there countries by holding good installations, edifice, and instruction can cut down the costs of catastrophe to whole society.

Resilience

Buckle, P. ( 1998 ) : cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defines: “ The capacity that people or groups may possess to defy or retrieve from exigencies and which can stand as a counterweight to exposure. ”

Correira, Santos, Rodrigues ( 1987 ) : cited in Thywissen, K. ( n.d. ) defines: ” Resilience is a step of the recovery clip of a system. ”

These descriptions of resiliency illustrate power and willingness the society had developed of all facets of instruction civilization of catastrophe bar on one manus with authorities bureaus and NGO ‘s to react efficaciously with energy soaking up of catastrophe as services and presence of day-to-day necessities in all of this enhances opposition to floor, confront, and overcome catastrophe swimmingly. As Eurotown there where resiliency in some parts but most other parts of Eurotown are enduring from the effects of the catastrophe. As consequence there was non sufficient resiliency of deficiency of day-to-day necessities and failing of public services. Therefore, there must be consideration in the development of options, safeguards and preventative enhance the catastrophe opposition to supply the day-to-day demands and services in the recovery stage and preparedness stage.

Decision

This study summarized the Eurotown catastrophe through the treatment of five duologues Eurotown went through. And each duologue recommend several issues to been addressed, where the study advise for taking these recommendations to get the better of future catastrophes.

Appendix-1:

Table 1.1 The causes and effects of Eurotown catastrophe

Infrastructure constituents and industrial

Cause bodyguard to & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; & gt ; Consequences

Transportation system

– Traffic visible radiation as consequence of electrical deficit.

– A figure of serious accidents.

These effects as the tabular array 1.1 shows the connexion and significance of electricity in modern clip to the people ‘s day-to-day needs as this sudden interruption down of an detonation of the LPG armored combat vehicle has consequence of killing four fire-fighters and 12 occupants and 36 people are losing. These effects had it ensue on public services resiliency to get by with catastrophe. For these ground, a steps should be taken to forestall future catastrophe ( Mountain, 2010 ) .
