Ganges The Ganges (also known as Ganga or Gonga), is the biggest river in the Indian subcontinent in terms of water flow. The length of the Ganga is 2, km or 1, miles.

      The Ganges River, also called Ganga, is a river located in northern India that flows toward the border with Bangladesh ().It is the longest river in India and flows for around 1, miles (2, km) from the Himalayan Mountains to the Bay of Bengal. The river has the second greatest water discharge in the world, and its basin is the most heavily populated in the world with over million.   The Ganga-Bramhaputra Basin together store around cubic km of water, researchers have claimed in a first first-of-its-kind study after mapping the rivers, and said it will help understand.

Ganges-Brahmaputra delta cyclone, catastrophic tropical cyclone that struck East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) on Nov. 12,killing hundreds of thousands of people in the densely populated Ganges-Brahmaputra delta. Even though it was not ranked in. The Ganga basin is a part of the Ganges-Brahmaputra basin draining 1, square kilometres in Tibet, Nepal, India and the north, the Himalaya or lower parallel ranges beyond form the Ganges-Brahmaputra divide.

On the west the Ganges Basin borders the Indus basin and then the Aravalli ridge. Southern limits are the Vindhyas and Chota Nagpur Plateau. The Ganges and Brahmaputra Rivers currently contribute about a billion tons (10 12 kg) of sediment annually to the Bengal Basin, and over the Holocene these sediments have built a deltaic feature with a subaerial surface area ofkm modern delta continues offshore as a prograding clinoform, extending km across the continental shelf from the river mouths, and about km.

Ganges delta, orGanges-Brahmaputra delta, Region in West Bengal state, India, and area of about mi ( km) wide along the Bay of Bengal, it is covered by the network of streams forming the mouths of the Ganges (Ganga) and Brahmaputra rivers.

In Bangladesh the Brahmaputra is joined by the Tista River and, from there to its junction with the Ganges, is known as the Jamuna River.

Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basin GeoGraphy, population and cliMate Geography The Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) river basin is a transboundary river basin with a total area of just over million km2, distributed between India (64 percent), China (18 percent), Nepal (9 percent), Bangladesh (7 percent) and Bhutan (3 percent) (Table 1).

The Indus and Ganges-Brahmaputra Basins Are Drying Up Faster Than We'd Like. The Indus Basin is the second most overstressed on the planet, its water levels falling by mm/year.

The basic peculiarities of the hydrological regime of one of the largest mouth areas of the world, i.e., the common mouth of the rivers of Ganges and Brahmaputra, are discussed.

The main features of natural conditions (including climatic) of the mouth of these rivers and the delta drainage system are characterized. The hydrological regime of the Ganges and Brahmaputra rivers, the largest. In the following year, Pakistan threw an outline of Ganga-Kobadak (GK) project in East Pakistan including a proposal for irrigating two million acres of land requiring a maximum of cusecs of water and joint survey of upper reaches of Ganges and Brahmaputra but India refused this outline.

The Ganga rises in the Garhwal Himalaya from the Gangotri Glacier, some meters above the sea level under the name of Bhagirathi. The river flows through the Himalayas till another two streams, the Mandakani and the Alakhnanda join it at Devprayag.

It is below this confluence that the river is known as the Ganga proper. The Ganga Basin which is the largest river basin of the country houses. The Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna (GBM) basins, shared between Bangladesh and India, as a whole, receive more water than necessary over the year, but the spatial and temporal distribution of.

Using 3‐D numerical models, we show that the deformation of the Earth surface due to the weight of sediments deposited in the Ganges‐Brahmaputra‐Meghna Delta (GBMD) is probably larger than previously found and induce significant land vertical downward motions in the eastern part of the delta.

Get route map of river Brahmaputra along with its tributaries, flowing through different major cities of India. The Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna (GBM) river system flows through five countries – Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, and Nepal – characterized by large population, limited land resources, and frequent floods and natural hazards.

Although the GBM region is well endowed with water sources, this is one of the poorest regions in the world.

We present a review of the processes, morphology, and stratigraphy of the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta (GBMD), including insights gained from detailed elevation data. The review shows that the GBMD is best characterized as a composite system, with.
