Monthly changes in pCO2 in the Ganges River: implications for carbon release from soil to the atmosphere via inland waters

  • , et al.
  • 2019

Recent studies have revealed that inland waters, such as rivers, act as an excellent source of soil-derived CO2 for the atmosphere. This flow is comparable in magnitude to that of anthropogenic CO2 release, such as fossil fuel use, playing an important part in the global carbon cycle and future climate change. Although one of the.. Read More

COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE CHANGES IN CLIMATIC CONDITION AND SEASONAL DROUGHT IN NORTH-WESTERN PART OF BANGLADESH

Abstract The study examines the long-term and seasonal climatic variations in north-western part of Bangladesh (NWPB). Long-term variation of different climatic parameters reveals that significant increases in temperature are associated with decreasing evaporation which could be attributed to wind speed variation and seasonal variation of temperature. Increase of monsoon rainfall during monsoon period and scarcity.. Read More

Climate change-driven losses in ecosystem services of coastal wetlands: A case study in the West coast of Bangladesh

Abstract Climate change is globally recognized as one of the key drivers of degradation of coastal wetland ecosystems, causing considerable alteration of services provided by these habitats. Quantifying the physical impacts of climate change on these services is therefore of utmost importance. Yet, practical work in this field is fragmented and scarce in current literature, especially in developing.. Read More

RISK FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH DESTRUCTION OF SUNDARBANS MANGROVE FOREST, BANGLADESH: A REVIEW FROM CLIMATE CHANGE PERSPECTIVE.

Abstract: Sundarbans mangrove forest is the largest continuous mangrove track of the world which is shared by Bangladesh and India. The Sundarbans reserved forest of Bangladesh constitutes around 51% of the country’s protected area and more than 3 million people depend on its resources. But the forest is under threats by anthropogenic interventions and climate.. Read More

Smallholder farmers’ perception to climate change impact on crop production: Case from drought prone areas of Bangladesh

  • Roy, et al.
  • 2019

Abstract Agriculture sector, due to its sensitivity, is vulnerable to climate change and it experiences several extreme climatic events such as droughts, flooding, natural catastrophes and salinity intrusion. Coping climate change events and mitigating its impacts on crop production need to assess farmers’ perception. The purpose of the study was to assess smallholder farmers’ perception.. Read More
