By Mehtab Singh, R.B. Singh, M.I. Hassan

The over-exploitation of vital earth assets comparable to land and water has resulted in a few environment-related difficulties internationally. while, land-use switch attributable to a number of human actions has resulted in extinction of many plant and animal habitats and species. during this context, the relevance of biodiversity for human survival is turning into an immense foreign political factor as medical proof builds at the worldwide health and wellbeing implications of biodiversity loss. those matters are heavily associated with the problem of weather switch, as a few of the healthiness dangers as a result of weather switch are linked to swift degradation of biodiversity. This current paintings makes a speciality of holistic ordinary resource-based spatio-temporal making plans, improvement, and administration and considers them as necessary to store the degraded environment for sustainable source administration. Contributions are compiled in volumes: 1. weather swap and Biodiversity and a pair of. panorama Ecology and Water administration. Geoinformatics besides its instruments resembling distant sensing and geographical details structures (GIS) were utilized in assessing the result of quite a few environmental difficulties either actual and social. the quantity could be worthy for geographers, geoscientists, hydrologists, panorama ecologists, environmentalists, engineers, planners and coverage makers.

A salinity level of creek and tidal river water is expected to raise the salinity of cultivated areas over which water overtops or if irrigated. 1 while salinity average is 25 ‰ at 25  C. 7 in both. The creeks around Gosaba town, records an average salinity of 24 ‰ in pre-monsoon, 16 ‰ in monsoons and 20 ‰ in post monsoon seasons. Salinity has been measured in ‰ also referred to as particles per thousand (ppt) or grams per kilogram. Salinity level remains least during the post-monsoon season due to huge fresh water inflow and rainfall that washes away the soluble salts whereas the maximum concentration is found in summers when high evapotranspiration draws out the soil moisture through capillary action, leaving the salt deposits on the top soil known as salt encrustations (Nath and De 1999) (Fig.

Hence the study of crop responses to the biotic and a-biotic stresses is of utmost necessity for food security and maintaining the ecological balance. 2 Objectives of the Study There has been much debate on actual crop productivity scenario in the Sundarban region during the last few years. The severe cyclone, Aila on May 25th, 2009 caused high storm surges, coastal inundation and heavy flooding, leaving the soil saline thereafter. The main objectives of this study is to establish the fact that the existing crop type and pattern are unsuitable in the present salinity and pH conditions of the soil and highlight the present socio-economic condition of the people.

But if there is a change point, then jUtj will increase up to the change point level and then will decrease. The significant change point t represents the point where value of jUtj is highest: KT ¼ ð4:8Þ max jU τ j 1 t T The approximated significant probability p(t) for a change point (Pettitt 1979) is: p ¼ 1 À exp À6K 2T n3 þ n2 ! ð4:9Þ When probability p(t) overcomes (1–α), then the change point is significant statistically at time t with the significance level of α. 3) (Khaliq and Ouarda 2007).
