River sediment can be used to measure the pollution level in natural water, as it serves as
one of the vital environmental indicators. This study aims to assess heavy metal pollution namely
Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Nickel (Ni), Lead (Pb), and Cadmium (Cd) in
Surma River. Further, it compares potential ecological risk...

The extensive work on the increasing burden of aerosols and resultant climate implications
shows a matter of great concern. In this study, we investigate the aerosol optical depth (AOD)
variations in the Indian Himalayan Region (IHR) between its plains and alpine regions and the
corresponding consequences on the energy balance on the Himalayan...

This study aims to assess the impacts of land use and land cover (LULC) changes on
the water quality of the Surma river in Bangladesh. For this, seasonal water quality changes were
assessed in comparison to the LULC changes recorded from 2010 to 2019. Obtained results from this
study indicated that pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and total...
