  • 2. The river is considered one of the most important and biggest river of asia. About 1,800 miles (2,900 km) long, the Brahmaputra is an important river for irrigation and transportation. The average depth of the river is 124 feet (38 m) and maximum depth is 380 feet (120 m). The river is prone to catastrophic flooding in spring when the Himalayan snows melts.
  • 3. ANGSI GLACIER Continued on next slide INDIA
  • 4. With its origin in the Angsi Glacier, located on the northern side of the Himalayas in Burang County of China's Tibet Autonomous Region as the Yarlung Tsangpo River, it flows across southern Tibet to break through the Himalayas in great gorges and into Arunachal Pradesh where it is known as Dihang.
  • 5. Starting from the Angsi Glacier in china, the Brahmaputra river passes through various states and religious places in india and then continues its way into the bay of Bengal. During its journey It passes through Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and then west Bengal into the the bay of Bengal.
  • 6. Brahmaputra River is one of the major rivers of India. In fact it is the biggest river in India. Starting from the Angsi glacier to its end in the Bay of Bengal, it covers a distance of 2900 km passing through various places like Guwahati, Umananda Bhairab, Pandughat, Goalundo etc.
  • 7. The great earthquake of 1950 created havoc, specially in the upper reaches of the Himalayas in and around the Siang and the Diboug river courses as well as in the upper Assam plains. There was considerable impact on the topography on both sides of the Brahmaputra Valley. This natural calamity was mainly responsible for the abrupt changes in the river ecology.
  • 8. Instead of constructing an artificial dam to prevent river water overflowing the bank and low-lying areas, the natural process of flooding should have been allowed to continue. With the gradual removal of debris either naturally or by mechanical means, the fury of the floods would have eased in course of time.
