condition after the eruption gunungmerapi

Mount Merapi Indonesia crying as if to say, that's news we often hear, Starting from flash floods in Wasior, the tsunami in the Mentawai and the eruption of Mount Merapi. But the sad news was also interspersed with Gaius news release from custody with a minimalist guise, which tarnished our law enforcement agencies.Earth is not static, but dynamic and constantly changing. Until now the change is still ongoing. As the continents move, an earthquake, volcano Merapi erupted, hurricanes, and irregularities occurred during the dry season and rainy season. The incident occurred outside the influence of human activities and humans are not able to prevent and block it.In predicting the location that will be affected by the disaster, you can use today's advanced technologies, namely through radar and optical satellite imagery. With the image data can be known condition before and after the eruption of Mount Merapi conditions, including changes in the crater.
For example, from satellite data are known before the eruption of Merapi crater 96 meters wide, whereas after the eruption changed significantly to 300 meters and a length of 1200 widened towards the west and south.
Energy eruption of Mount Merapi has not really stopped and is still happening tremors that punctuated the hot cloud, so the activity of Merapi is still happening. The growth of lava dome about 3.5 million cubic meters with an average growth of 28 cubic meters per second. Based on the calculation that 20 kilometers from the summit of Merapi is a scientific safe limits issued by the government.
Until now the condition of Mount Merapi is still in a state of "alert", which means it is a very dangerous condition. In this condition, the communities around Mount Merapi should be aware of activities that can only happen suddenly, like a cloud of hot and regurgitated material that is very dangerous. What to watch out for is a disaster can only come when people are being careless, so that current monitoring Mount Merapi should really be done carefully.
Since the eruption of Mount Merapi is vertically upwards, then it does not mean that the hot clouds glide direction will be in accordance with satellite imagery, but depending on the direction the wind is blowing. This is where the weakness of the satellite imagery.However, the image / photo can be used as scientific data. To determine the direction of clouds glide heat, cold or hot lava required intensive monitoring in the field.
Environmental damage by natural phenomena or due to natural events that occur in severe, thus affecting the environmental balance. Damage to the environment cause the man can not live in the neighborhood because of the danger and the proficiency level should be moved.
With the proliferation of environmental disasters, whether natural or man made, Indonesia should have a model in disaster management. This disaster management model should start from the growing awareness in the community will be a disaster that might occur such as floods, volcanic eruption, earthquake, landslide, tsunami and others. With the model of this disaster, we are expected to be better prepared to cope with disasters. Starting with early warning of disaster, the location of the refugee / gathering place, the number of medical personnel, the number of volunteers needed and the distribution of basic materials and logistics. So it is not too late yet, if the disaster occurs.
Eruption of Mount Merapi is destiny, the will of Allah, that no one could stop him.Environmental damage it causes to be evidence that humans are very dependent on the environment. Coincides with Eid al-Adha, may give the message that people must be "sacrificed" his life for the sake of environmental sustainability. And coincides with Memorial Day, there are still many people who called and care for each other, as volunteers, in helping to ease the burden on victims of Merapi, such as the promise of Allah "in difficulty there is relief".
