Mountain rivers often receive sediment in the form of episodic, discrete pulses from a variety of natural and anthropogenic processes. Once emplaced in the river, the movement of this sediment depends on flow, grain size distribution, and channel and network geometry. Here, we simulate downstream bed elevation changes that result from discrete inpu...

Stormwater management is a challenging task in urban areas, particularly in relatively densely populated cities having weak water governance and a lack in the institutional arrangement. It is even more challenging when the natural drainage system experiences relatively high water levels in the peripheral rivers during the rainy season, or if the sy...

Morphological changes of the Jamuna River are a very common phenomenon, mainly due to its location. Jamuna is 240 km in length from which 36 km reach was selected for the current study. Using dry season satellite images USGS site (From 1997 to 2013), this study assessed morphological changes of the selected reach of Jamuna. A comprehensive analysis...

The DAP (Detailed Area Plan, 2007) as part of Dhaka Structure Plan (1995-2015) tried to tackle planning problems and ensure proper urbanization but it is hard to check if these plans were properly implemented. To assess in real situation if the proposed plan in DAP was implemented properly within the time span of 2015 google earth based land use an...

Jamuna River is characterized by its extremely dynamic and unstable alluvial channels. This 240km long braided river is located in lowest reach of the Brahmaputra River in Bangladesh. The Brahmaputra River catchment supplies enormous quantities of sediment from the actively uplifting mountains in the Himalayas, its erosive foothills and the great a...

One of the major sources of fresh water flow in south west region of Bangladesh comes from the river Gorai which takes off from its parent river, the Ganges. Due to implementation of the Farakka Barrage in 1975, the dry season flows in Ganges River started to decline subsequently. As a result, flow through the Gorai started reducing and off-take go...
