South-East Asian Region (SEAR): Sea Basin Landscape Mapping for Paleoclimatology & Recent Climate Change Impacts

Shared by Nomana Intekhab Hadi, updated on May 08, 2013



The objective of this work includes the coastal scenario, risks and development of coastal paleoclimatology through landscape mapping; by highlighting the devastating climate change impacts that might result in tsunami in South-East Asian sea basin with short or no-awareness period; despite the facts that the Southeast Asia region is generally poor being encompassed by twelve countries along with the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Special payable concern to the Bay of Bengal has been paid that can dictate region’s climate to certain extent. The ecosystems’ impact due to climate change and global warming -can bring direct variables and affects in –salinity, temperature, river flow, runoff, soil characteristics, erosion, nutrition level and water quality. The landscape mapping can address the system infrastructure requirements to the SEAR’s sea basin attainable by the annual monsoons, the Southwest and the Northeast Monsoons. How recent meteorological and geodynamic-genetic events can result in adverse economical damages and significant losses of lives are also drawn. This work monitors on Sea-level rise gets projected under global warming. The most brainstorming findings from climate change issues are how the high latitudes for SEAR Sea Basins’ are likely to experience greater warming than the global mean and warming,- And how the hydrological cycle gets found responsible for bringing more floods and more droughts in- causing huge devastating changes for environmental factors in coastal zones
