Conference Paper
The Bengal delta, Bangladesh, is a low-lying and densely populated coastal area, which is one of the most climate-vulnerable regions of the world. Climate change, sediment deposition, land transformation, sea-level rise, pollution, irrigation, mining activity, disposal of effluents, diminishing freshwater discharge, and chemical fluxes from upstrea...
Article
Wetlands are important for their peat reservoir, dynamic land cover and natural resources, ecological and hydrological regimes, fossil fuels reservoir, and crucial carbon storage. The global wetlands are decreasing since 1800 due to climatic phenomena and human activities. Wetland mapping with satellite data is not new but an ongoing challenge due...

Farming adaptation in low-lying coastal areas of Bangladesh is mandatory due to increasing impacts of climate change on agriculture. The study evaluated farmers' perception on climate-related hazards, climate variables and factors. Further, the study identified different existence sustainable farming adaptation measures. The final outcomes are conc...
Conference Paper
Prolongate global warming and sea-level rise, and human activities in the past decades, the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh have been suffering severe water salinization problems, special concern for the groundwater. Water salinization in this active delta region is a complex combination of natural (i.e., hydrogeology, hydrochemistry, hydrau...
Article
Increasing water salinity in coastal areas is a concern for the coastal environment. Increased salinity is affecting water quality, freshwater availability, and water-related ecosystems in the southwest coastal region of the Bengal Delta. The study used a synergies and robust approach to assess the possible factors for increasing water salinity in...
Article

Water chemistry of BRRS (Bhairab-Rupsha River System) is defining the water quality of BRRS, which is seasonally changed from premonsoon (March-May) to postmonsoon (June-August). The study identified the relation in changes of water chemistry and water pollution with riverbank land use patterns and regional climate through four analytical framework...
Conference Paper
Coastal ecosystems act as a dominating factor for inhabitants' environmental and social setups. In recent years, river ecosystems are facing an adverse salinity problem in southwest Bangladesh. River water salinization is a distress for eco-hydrological issue in the southwest coastal region of Bangladesh. Increasing river water salinity is affectin...

The study applied a robust integrative study approach to explore significant factors for saltwater intrusion in Southwest Bengal Delta (SwBD). The study used four analytical frameworks in an integrative analytical platform. Hydrochemical framework identify the significant ions (Na+ , Cl-, Mg2+ , Ca2+ , Br and nd SO42-) and ionic ratios (Na/Cl (meq/...
Article
Floods in the southwest coastal area of Bangladesh are very much regular. Tidal floods are coming at every high tidal period twice in a day. The landcovers of the study area are mainly water bodies or wetlands – for saltwater shrimp and crab cultivation, and vegetation – for agricultural activities and the Sundarbans mangrove forest. There are sign...

Project
Identify the agricultural adaptation through climatic data analysis and farmers’ perception on climate change.
Project
By the use of hydrochemical, isotopic, statistical and geoinformatics analysis of surface water, groundwater, pond water and rain water to determine the main reason of sea water intrusion in coastal area.
Project
Identify the landcover change of a coastal island in Bangladesh after flood event (called Aila) from 2009 to 2015 with 6 months and 2 years temporal resolution; by the use of Landsat TM+ and OLI TIRS (Multi-Spectral Surface Reflectance) optical sensors data. Uses of NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), NDWI (Normalized Difference Water Index) spectral index, and K-Means Cluster to determine and identify the landcover change in sq. km on three different selected landcover types (Water bodies, Vegetations, and Clouds).
