Article
Full-text available
An increasing number of coastal hazards such as cyclones, tsunami and coastal erosion are the consequences of global climate change, creating an immense impact on the coastal habitat and coastal ecosystem. The study area (Subarnarekha to Rasulpur estuary) part of the Bay of Bengal is under a potentially vulnerable condition to coastal erosion. The...

A 13-member ensemble from CMIP5 is used to analyze the Iran future climate in terms of surface air temperature (TAS), identifying when anomalies of 1.5 ℃, 2.0 ℃ and 2.5 ℃ would be achieved respect to the preindustrial period (1861–1900) using the time sampling method. The global warming targets (D1.5,D2.0,D2.5) are attained by the 2024, 2040 and 20...

The present study highlights the shoreline changes between Rasulpur and Subarnarekha estuary in West Bengal and Orissa, respectively, with a total length of 70.42 km by long-term change assessment. The entire length of the shoreline has been divided into three littoral zones (LZs) to estimate the change rate on a LZ basis. The study uses 11 multire...

Nagaland, one of the north eastern hill states of India, receives over 1748 mm of annual average rainfall. Research articles have dichotomized findings on increasing and decreasing rainfall trends. But news media have been reporting about the recent water scarcity, especially in the urban areas and the blame has been on the faulty water management....
Article
Full-text available
The spatial distribution of landslides is analyzed to understand landslide incidences and triggering factors along North Sikkim Road Corridor in the parts of Sikkim Himalayas. The present study area is also highly prone to landslide which mainly occurred due to heavy rainfall and earthquake. The present study highlights the spatial distribution of...

A geospatial analysis of shoreline change pattern is most significant parameter to understand the behavioral interaction between land and sea water. Geospatial analyses using various statistical and quantitative methods which are more applicable, accurate and dependable to measures the spatio-temporal trend of erosion accretion and estimate the cha...

Underdevelopment in the third world developing economies has been one of the essential features that have made a welfare state’s role even more important. We need a strong government setup to break the curse of backwardness by using its various socio-economic policies. Again, within backward parts, few parts are ‘advanced’ in nature. Due to COVID-1...

The Sundarban is a unique ecosystem—the largest delta and estuarine mangrove forest in India. The people in the Sunderbans of West Bengal are primarily dependent on the extraction of renewable resources like fishery, forestry to maintain their livelihood in a sustained manner. The degree of dependency, the awareness about sustainability of renewabl...

The shoreline is a very unpredictable, uncertain, and forever changing landscape for any coastal process. Due to erosional and accretional activities, the shoreline has continuously fluctuated with the continual process of waves and tides. Shore boundaries are determined by the shoreline at its furthest towards the sea (low tide) and extreme toward...

Recent years, the rate of coastal erosion is considerably increased in India due to human interference and natural drivers. The coastline of the Western part of West Bengal is severely eroded. Months from June to October, as the monsoon wind affects the direction and magnitude of the waves affecting the coastline with intense erosion hotspots makin...

Landslide Hazards Zonation Mapping is a major tool for the geographer, geologist, ground engineer, and land-use planner for landslide prevention strategies. The main outcome of the present study is to prepare a Landslide Hazards Zonation Map of the region along the North Sikkim Road Corridor in Sikkim Himalayas, an area highly vulnerable to the lan...

North Sikkim Road Corridor in Sikkim Himalayas is characterized by fine-grained, less permeable earth material and is thus vulnerable to landslides. Mantam is one of the new and active massive rock-cum-debris slides, initiated during the rainy season of 2016. In the Himalayan foot-hills, rainfall precipitation is a major triggering factor for the i...

Land sliding is a perennial problem in the Eastern Himalayas. Out of 0.42 million km2 of Indian landmass prone to landslide, 42% fall in the North East Himalaya, specially Darjeeling and Sikkim Himalaya. Most of these landslides are triggered by excessive monsoon rainfall between June and October in almost every year. Various attempts in the global...
Article
The influence of the 2011 Sikkim earthquake on subsequent rain-induced landslide is evaluated by comparing of landslides in the North Sikkim Road Corridor that covered the period from 2008 to 2016. In 2011, Sikkim earthquake not only triggered serious co-seismic landslides itself but also extensively disturbed the surface layer around the epicenter...
Article
Coastal erosion is an elongated problem in West Bengal coast, India. In the recent years, the rate of coastal erosion is considerably enhanced in India due to human interference and natural drivers. The coastline of western part of West Bengal is severely eroded. During this period, accretion was recorded up drift of artificial structures, like sea...
