Bay of Bengal

The Bay of Bengal is the northeastern part of the Indian Ocean, bounded on the west and northwest by India, on the north by Bangladesh, on the east by Myanmar and the Andaman Islands of India and Myanmar and the Nicobar Islands of India. Its southern limit is the north westernmost point of Sumatra, it is the largest water region called a bay in the world. There are countries dependent on the Bay of Bengal in Southeast Asia; the Bay of Bengal occupies an area of 2,172,000 square kilometres. A number of large rivers flow into the Bay of Bengal: the Ganges–Hooghly, the Padma, the Brahmaputra–Jamuna, the Barak–Surma–Meghna, the Irrawaddy, the Godavari, the Mahanadi, the Brahmani, the Baitarani, the Krishna and the Kaveri. Among the important ports are Chennai-Ennore, Colombo, Kolkata-Haldia, Paradip, Port Blair, Tuticorin and Dhamra. Among the smaller ports are Gopalpur Port and Payra; the International Hydrographic Organization defines the limits of the Bay of Bengal as follows: On the east: A line running from Cape Negrais in Burma through the larger islands of the Andaman group, in such a way that all the narrow waters between the islands lie eastward of the line and are excluded from the Bay of Bengal, as far as a point in Little Andaman Island in latitude 10°48'N, longitude 92°24'E and thence along the southwest limit of the Andaman Sea.

On the south: Ram Sethu and from the southern extreme of Dondra Head to the north point of Poeloe Bras. The bay gets its name from the historical Bengal region. In ancient scriptures, this water body may have been referred to as'Mahodadhi' while it appears as Sinus Gangeticus or Gangeticus Sinus, meaning "Gulf of the Ganges", in ancient maps; the other Sanskrit name for Bay of Bengal is'Purvapayodhi'. Bengali name "Bongoposagor" has been derived from the English meaning of "Bay of Bengal". Odia name "Bangaposagar" or other Indian names have been ascribed by translating colonial dialect. Many major Rivers of India and Bangladesh flow west to east before draining into the Bay of Bengal; the Ganga is the northernmost of these rivers. Its main channel enters and flows through Bangladesh, where it is known as the Padma River, before joining the Meghna River. However, the Brahmaputra River flows from east to west in Assam before turning south and entering Bangladesh where it is called the Jamuna River.

This joins the Padma where upon the Padma joins the Meghna River that drains into Bay of Bengal. The Sundarbans is a mangrove forest in the southern part of the Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta which lies in the Indian state of West Bengal and in Bangladesh; the Brahmaputra at 2,948 km is the 28th longest River in the world. It originates in Tibet; the Hooghly River, another channel of the Ganga that flows through Kolkata drains into Bay of Bengal at Sagar in West Bengal, India. The Ganga–Brahmaputra-Barak rivers deposit nearly 1000 million tons of sediment every year; the sediment from these three rivers form the Bengal Delta and the submarine fan, a vast structure that extends from Bengal to south of the Equator, is up to 16.5 kilometres thick, contains at least 1,130 trillion tonnes of sediment, which has accumulated over the last 17 million years at an average rate of 665 million tons per annum. The fan has buried organic carbon at a rate of nearly 1.1 trillion mol/yr since the early Miocene period.

The three rivers contribute nearly 8% of the total organic carbon deposited in the world's oceans. Due to high TOC accumulation in the deep sea bed of the Bay of Bengal, the area is rich in oil and natural gas and gas hydrate reserves. Bangladesh can reclaim land and economically gain from the sea area by constructing sea dikes, causeways and by trapping the sediment from its rivers. Further southwest of Bengal, the Mahanadi, Godavari and Kaveri Rivers flow from west to east across Deccan Plateau in Peninsular India and drain into the Bay of Bengal forming deltas. Many small rivers drain directly into the Bay of Bengal forming estuaries; the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar flows into the Andaman Sea of the Bay of Bengal and once had thick mangrove forests of its own. Indian ports on the bay include Paradip Port, Kolkata Port, Haldia Port, Visakhapatnam, Pondicherry, Dhamra and Bangladeshi ports on the Bay are Chittagong, Payra Port; the islands in the bay are numerous, including the Andaman Islands, Nicobar Islands and Mergui Archipelago of India and Myanmar.

The Cheduba group of islands, in the north-east, off the Burmese coast, are remarkable for a chain of mud volcanoes, which are active. Great Andaman is the main archipelago or island group of the Andaman Islands, whereas Ritchie's Archipelago consists of smaller islands. Only 37, or 6.5%, of the 572 islands and islets of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands are inhabited. The lithosphere of the earth is broken up into. Underneath the Bay of Bengal, part of the great Indo-Australian Plate and is moving north east; this plate meets the Burma Microplate at the Sunda Trench. The Nicobar Islands and the Andama
