Water Resources Vulnerability to Climate Change with Special Reference to Inundation

Vulnerability of water resources considered changes in flooding conditions due to combination of increased discharge of river water during monsoon period and sea level rise for the two projection years, 2030 and 2075. MIKE11, a fixed bed hydrodynamic model, was used for the estimation of changes in river water level which was coupled with Geographic.. Read More

Development of Climate Change Scenarios with General Circulation Models

The vulnerability to climate change for different sectors was assessed based on climate scenarios for two projection years 2030 and 2075. These climate scenarios were developed by using General Circulation Model. Models were run to find correlation with the observed time-series data for 10 particular points distributed all over the country both for base and.. Read More

Adaptation to Climate Change in Bangladesh: Future Outlook

Avatar Image

Bangladesh, it is by now well known, is one of those poor countries which face the irony of adapting to and mitigating the consequences of global warming and climate change which are, by and large, not of their own making while they have in general the least human, societal, technological and financial capability for such..

Climate change impacts and adaptation assessment in Bangladesh

Bangladesh is likely to be one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. This paper discusses the possible impacts of climate change in Bangladesh through tropical cyclones, storm surges, coastal erosion and back water effect. The possible increase in cyclone frequency in the Bay of Bengal, lying south of Bangladesh, due.. Read More

Weathering processes in the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin and the riverine alkalinity budget

We present river chemistry data for a network of rivers draining the western and central Nepal Himalaya. Our sampling locations cover the system from the sources of rivers in Tibet to the Gangetic plain. Water samples were collected throughout the year, including the monsoon season, for rivers in Nepal and for the Ganges and Brahmaputra.. Read More

Thermal Climate Variations and Potential Modification of the Cropping Pattern in Bangladesh

Changes in the thermal climate due to inter-annual climatic variability can potentially modify existing cropping pattern by forcing farmers to rearrange transplanting and harvesting dates. In the present study, a crop climate model, the YIELD, has been applied to 12 meteorological stations located in major rice growing regions in Bangladesh to estimate the effect of.. Read More

Population and environment in Bangladesh

  • Huq, et al.
  • 1998

The paper challenges the simplistic concept of population as an aggregate of consuming units, putting stress increasingly on the natural resources leading to environmental degradation. It argues that the inter-relationship between population and environment is more complex and multi-dimensional. Human beings are not always consumers they are also producers and some time they are conservators.. Read More

Simulating the impact of climate change on rice production in Asia and evaluating options for adaptation

The likely effects of climate change caused by increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels on rice production in Asia were evaluated using two rice crop simulation models, ORYZA1 and SIMRIW, running under ‘fixed-change’ climate scenarios and scenarios predicted for a doubled-CO2 (2 × CO2) atmosphere by the General Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), the Goddard Institute of..

Scour in large braided rivers and the recognition of sequence stratigraphic boundaries

Alluvial scour into shallow marine sediments may be caused by the incision of a river adjusting to a new base level following a fall in sea level. The identification of such erosion surfaces has therefore been pivotal in the reconstruction of past sea-level changes from ancient sedimentary sequences. Here we report data from a study..
