Green-house gas mitigation capacity of a small scale rural bio-gas plant calculations for Bangladesh through a general life cycle assessment

Calculations towards determining the greenhouse gas mitigation capacity of a small-scale biogas plant (3.2 m3 plant) using cow dung in Bangladesh are presented. A general life cycle assessment was used, evaluating key parameters (biogas, methane, construction materials and feedstock demands) to determine the net environmental impact. The global warming potential saving through the use of biogas as.. Read More

This study investigates the historical development of the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh through the lens of human-delta co-evolutionary system. The change process of social and hydro-ecological systems is described based on the drivers–pressure–state–impact–response (DPSIR) framework. The multiple physical and socio-economic drivers such as climatic change, upstream development, geologic process, land use change-affected river flow,.. Read More


Impact of Dam on Flow Regime and Flood Plain Modification in Punarbhaba River Basin of Indo-Bangladesh Barind Tract

Punarbhaba river basin of Indo-Bangladesh (5265.93 sq. km) is an evident example of hydrologically and ecologically modified river since 1992. One dam was installed over Dhepa River in 1992, which is main water supplier to Punarbhaba River at Birganj (25°51′46″N and 88°39′52″E) in Bangladesh. Since then, flow character of the river has changed as well.. Read More

Defining and Predicting Heat Waves in Bangladesh

This paper proposes a heat wave definition for Bangladesh that could be used to trigger preparedness measures in a heat early warning system (HEWS) and explores the climate mechanisms associated with heat waves. A HEWS requires a definition of heat waves that is both related to human health outcomes and forecastable. No such definition has.. Read More
