Abstract. Vibracores and auger samples collected from the lower (tidal) delta plain of the Ganges-Brahmaputra River in Bangladesh were examined to determine whether the area is a significant sink for riverine sediments. Measurements of 137Cs activity and radiocarbon in the sediments indicate sediment accumulation is taking place on decadal and millennial time scales at rates reaching 1.1 cm/year. The sediment of the lower delta plain is primarily derived from an offshore source after having… 
Processes of delta formation in the mouth area of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers
The evolution of the Ganges and Brahmaputra river delta during the Holocene period is discussed. Particular attention is given to the processes of delta formation, the dynamics of the delta
Observations and scaling of tidal mass transport across the lower Ganges-Brahmaputra delta plain: implications for delta management and sustainability
Abstract. The landscape of southwest Bangladesh, a region constructed primarily by fluvial processes associated with the Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers, is now maintained almost exclusively by tidal

Influences of sea level on depositional environment during the last 1000 years in the southwestern Bengal delta, Bangladesh
This study illustrates the influences of sea-level on the depositional process during the last 1000 years of the southwestern delta, Bangladesh. Sediments of eight litho-sections from landward in
Seasonal Variability of Forces Controlling Sedimentation in the Sundarbans National Forest, Bangladesh
Southwest Bangladesh, located on the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta, is experiencing the impacts of sea level rise (SLR) due to processes at both the local and global scale. In particular, regional
