Ganges Delta

The Ganges Delta is a river delta in the Bengal region of the Indian subcontinent, consisting of Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal. It is the world's largest delta and empties into the Bay of Bengal the combined waters of several river systems those of the Brahmaputra river and the Ganges river, it is one of the most fertile regions in the world, thus earning the nickname the Green Delta. The delta stretches from the Hooghly River east as far as the Meghna River; the Ganges Delta is considered to be an "arcuate" delta. It covers more than 105,000 km2, although the delta lies in Bangladesh and India, rivers from Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal drain into it from the north. 60% of the delta is in Bangladesh and, 40% in West Bengal, India. Most of the delta is composed of alluvial soils made up by small sediment particles that settle down as river currents slow down in the estuary. Rivers carry these fine particles with them from their sources at glaciers as fluvio-glacial. Red and red-yellow laterite soils are found as one heads farther east.

The soil has large amounts of minerals and nutrients, good for agriculture. It is composed of a labyrinth of channels, swamps and flood plain sediments; the Gorai-Madhumati River, one of the distributaries of the Ganges, divides the Ganges Delta into two parts: the geologically young, eastern delta, the older, less active, western delta. Between 125 and 143 million people live on the delta, despite risks from floods caused by monsoons, heavy runoff from the melting snows of the Himalayas, North Indian Ocean tropical cyclones. A large part of the nation of Bangladesh lies in the Ganges Delta, many of the country's people depend on the delta for survival, it is believed that upwards of 300 million people are supported by the Ganges Delta, 400 million people live in the Ganges River Basin, making it the most populous river basin in the world. Most of the Ganges Delta has a population density of more than 200 people per km2, making it one of the most densely populated regions in the world. Three terrestrial ecoregions cover the delta.

The Lower Gangetic plains moist deciduous forests ecoregion covers most of the delta region, although the forests have been cleared for agriculture and only small enclaves remain. Thick stands of tall grass, known as canebrakes, grow in wetter areas; the Sundarbans freshwater swamp forests ecoregion lies closer to the Bay of Bengal. These forests, have been completely converted to intensive agriculture, with only 130 square kilometres of the ecoregion's 14,600 square kilometres protected. Where the delta meets the Bay of Bengal, Sundarbans mangroves form the world's largest mangrove ecoregion, covering an area of 20,400 square kilometres in a chain of 54 islands, they derive their name from the predominant mangrove species, Heritiera fomes, which are known locally as sundri or sundari. Animals in the delta include the Indian python, clouded leopard, Indian elephant and crocodiles, which live in the Sundarbans. 1,020 endangered Bengal tigers are believed to inhabit the Sundarbans. The Ganges–Brahmaputra basin has tropical deciduous forests that yield valuable timber: sal and peepal trees are found in these areas.

The delta region has mangrove trees. It is estimated. Birds found in the delta include kingfishers, woodpeckers, the shalik, the swamp francolin, the doel. Two species of dolphin can be found in the delta: the Irrawaddy dolphin and the Ganges river dolphin; the Irrawaddy dolphin is an oceanic dolphin. The Ganges river dolphin is a true river dolphin, but is rare and considered endangered. Trees found in the delta include sundari, bamboo, mangrove palm, mangrove date palm. Many endangered species live here; the Ganges Delta lies at the junction of three tectonic plates: the Indian Plate, the Eurasian Plate, the Burma Plate. The edge of the Eocene paleoshelf runs from Kolkata to the edge of the Shillong Plateau; the edge of the paleoshelf marks the transition from the thick continental crust in the northwest to the thin continental or oceanic crust in the southeast. The enormous sediment supply from the Himalayan collision has extended the delta about 400 kilometres seaward since the Eocene; the sediment thickness southeast of the edge of the paleoshelf beneath the Ganges Delta can exceed 16 km.

Two-thirds of the Bangladesh people work in agriculture, grow crops on the fertile floodplains of the delta. The major crops that are grown in the Ganges Delta are jute and rice. Fishing is an important activity in the delta region, with fish being a major source of food for many of the people in the area. In recent years, scientists have been helping the poor people of the delta to improve fish farming methods. By turning unused ponds into viable fish farms, improving methods of raising fish in existing ponds, many people can now earn a living raising and selling fish. Using new systems, fish production in existing ponds has increased 800%. Shrimp are
