Coastal aquifers in Bangladesh
Bangladesh, being located on the Northern coast of the Bay of Bengal in South Asia, is majorly characterized by the delta of the Ganges and the Brahmaputra. Tropical monsoons, floods and cyclones occur frequently in this low-lying deltaic area. The combination of rapidly increasing anthropogenic activity and climate change increases the pressure on its coastal groundwater system and increases the magnitude of salt water intrusion.
