    The Ganges-Brahmaputra delta is the largest delta in the world and the rivers contribute one-third of the global sediment transport to the world oceans. The rivers flow through 10 per cent global population and carry untreated rural, urban, municipal, and industrial wastes to the Bay of Bengal. This water is used for irrigation but has greatly diminished the flow of the river and has led to the decay of the Ganges as an inland waterway. The construction of the Farakka Barrage at the head of the delta in West Bengal is a cause of major tension between India and Bangladesh.

    The Sundarban deltaic complex is created by the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna (GBM) rivers in the Bay of Bengal (BoB), recognized as the Ganges–Brahmaputra delta or Ganges delta—one of the geochemically youngest and potential tectonically active river basins in the : S.K. Sarkar, M.K. Ahmed, K.K. Satpathy. The aquatic region of India is home to some of the biggest and giant aquatic creatures and the mighty rivers of India are also a good habitat for river monsters. Giant aquatic creatures and river monsters of India includes Indian mottled eel,Indian mahseer, Freshwater crocodile,Dwarf snakeheads,Wallago attu,Flathead catfish,large water snake,Dugongs and saltwater crocodile.

    The Central Water Commission (CWC) has divided the Ganges basin into the Upper Ganges, Yamuna, and Lower Ganges basins. The mean annual available water resources of Ganges basin are billion m 3 (BCM), while it is BCM in the Lower Ganges basin which extends from the eastern margin of the Punjab in the west to the Bangladesh border Author: Ramachandran Ramesh, Ahana Lakshmi, Swati Mohan Sappal, S R Bonthu, Mary Divya Suganya, D. Ganguly. After many years of poor water and soil management, yields had been low. Youth who saw little future in farming were migrating to find work elsewhere. The nearby JSW Steel plant, which provides jobs for many residents in over 40 local villages, decided they wanted to support local communities.

The terrestrial scheme divides the Earth's land surface into 8 terrestrial ecozones, containing smaller ecoregions.

Each ecoregion is classified into one of 12 major habitat types, or biomes. from the delta at the Bay of Bengal till the Himalayan foothills, where only rocky barriers, high velocities or shallow water limited its distribution.

Leaves are opposite and thin, generally less than an inch in length. This paper investigates the possible impacts of climate change on aquatic salinity and mangrove species in the Bangladesh Sundarbans. The impact analysis combines the salinity tolerance ranges of predominant mangrove species with aquatic salinity measures in 27 scenarios of climate change by The estimates indicate significant overall losses for Heritiera fomes; substantial Cited by: 4.

However, other differences among regions are not well known; e.g., the average arsenic concentration of 38 μg/L in the marsh and clay deposits in the Ganges River floodplain is significantly lower than the average arsenic concentration of μg/L in the surrounding deltaic deposits in the same by: Aquatic plant photographs were provided by David Bayne, Jim Davis, Kelly Duffie, Billy Higginbotham, Michael Masser, John Clayton, Chetta Owens, Diane Smith, Joe Snow, Don Steinbach, Bridget Robinson Lassiter and Peter Woods.

It is a natural occurring high concentration of arsenic in deeper levels of groundwater, which became a high-profile problem in recent years due to the use of deep tube wells for water supply in the Ganges Delta. Parts of Thailand, Taiwan, Argentina, Chile and China have also been affected.

The Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta (also known as the Brahmaputra Delta, the Sunderbans Delta or the Bengal Delta) is a river delta in the Bengal region of the South Asia, consisting of Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal.
