In this visualization project I have given brief overview of Sundarbans delta region in South Asia. The Sundarbans is one of the largest mangrove forests in the world. It lies on the delta of the Bay of Bengal, covering two countries – India and Bangladesh. More than half of it is in India, the rest is in Bangladesh. It has status of protected and reserved forests in both countries. Indian side Sundarbans was inscribed on UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987, whereas Bangladesh side was inscribed in 1997. It lies in climatically vulnerable zones, capturing the spectrum of climatic events – erosion, submergence and cyclone. Zones have experienced differential effect of climatic events. Deltaic islands in this region are slowly submerging due to global warming.
