World’s carbon emissions set to spike by 2% in 2017

Nature, Vol. 551, No. 7680. (13 November 2017),


Increased coal use in China appears to be driving the first increase in global greenhouse-gas output since 2014. [Excerpt] [...] Humanity’s carbon emissions are likely to surge by 2% in 2017, driven mainly by increased coal consumption in China, scientists reported on 13 November. The unexpected rise would end a three-year period in which emissions have remained flat despite a growing global economy. [...] Several factors caused the world’s CO2 emissions to level out from 2014 to 2016, including an economic slowdown ...

Groundwater flow in the Ganges delta

Science, Vol. 296, No. 5573. (2002), pp. 1563-1563,


asu et al. (1) reported that 2 × 1011 m3/year of groundwater flows directly into the Bay of Bengal, an outflow equivalent to 19% of the discharge from the Ganges-Brahmaputra river system. They showed that this estimate of flow could have important consequences for the interpretation of marine strontium isotope records, because strontium concentrations are higher in Ganges delta groundwater than in Ganges-Brahmaputra river water. The flow could also have implications for the origin and fate of other groundwater constituents in ...


Assessment the impact of sea level rise on mangrove dynamics of Ganges delta in India using remote sensing and GIS

Journal of Environment and Earth Science, Vol. 4, No. 21. (2014), pp. 117-127


The intertidal mangrove ecosystem of Indian Sundarban is now as a critical ecosystem due to climate change induced sea level rise. The present study analyses the responses, migration, destruction and vulnerability of the four deltaic mangrove ecosystem (Bakhali, Bulcherry, Dalhausie and Bangaduni Islands) along the ocean sides. The changes of these deltaic ecosystem studied by using GIS and remote sensing with collecting data about sea level of nearest tidal gauge station Haldia (2.59 ± 1.0 mm/year) and Diamond Harbor (4.67 ± ...

Changes and status of mangrove habitat in Ganges delta: case study in Indian part of Sundarbans

International Journal of Geology, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Vol. 4, No. 3. (2014), pp. 109-118


This paper quantifies the changes and present status of mangrove forest in Indian part of Sundarban from 1975 to 2014 using Landsat MSS (1975), TM (1990), ETM (2002) and OLM (2014) satellite imageries. The study used two image processing techniques: Maximum Likelihood Classification for the Land use and land cover analysis and NDVI for the vegetation characteristics and their temporal changes. The research found that the area of mangrove gradually decreases from 203752 hector (44%) to 132723 hector (31 %) and the barren land increases from ...

Curricula for ICT in education - Version #1.01



[Overview] The National Policy on ICT in school education has set the goal of preparing youth to participate creatively in the establishment, sustenance and growth of a knowledge society leading to all round socio-economic development of the nation and to be geared for global competitiveness. The National Curriculum Framework which guides the teaching-learning effort in schools cautions that technology used as a mere medium to disseminate infor- mation tends to bypass the teacher. It expresses a firm belief that teachers and children ...


Modelling soil erosion using the Universal Soil Loss Equation and a geographic information system: the Kinnarasani river watershed, Andhra Pradesh, India

Keywords: gis   india   land-cover   modelling   soil-erosion   soil-resources   usle  


Soil erosion is a global problem, with grave consequences for the environment, human society and the economy. It is possible to identify areas with a high risk of soil erosion using computer models and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This study models soil erosion on the Kinnarasani river’s watershed, in semi arid tropical India. It uses the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) and establishes the different parameters using mostly freely accessible data. The results are verified visually in the field. Perspectives for ...


Threats from India's Himalaya Dams

Science, Vol. 339, No. 6115. (04 January 2013), pp. 36-37,


To meet surging domestic energy demand, provide power to the largest population in the world that lacks electricity (>400 million people), and reduce rapidly growing CO2 emissions, the Government of India (GOI) has embarked on a fast-track dam-building program. Over the next several decades, the GOI aims to construct 292 dams throughout the Indian Himalaya, doubling current hydropower capacity and contributing ∼6% to projected national energy needs by 2030 (1). With the use of coal set to expand, India's total carbon ...
