Information
The applicant should be working as a PhD dealing with the problem of As in groundwater in the Bengal Delta plain area and bring field data and analysis results to investigate the role of irrigation pumping on groundwater chemistry. To explore the change in the gw flow regime and thereby ultimately influencing gw chemistry. Also the influence of anthropogenic sources (agricultural return /pond water /biologically degradable organic carbon from surface run off /sanitation/cattle farm) on gw chemistry and sediment-water interaction can be explored in terms of the release of arsenic into the ground water. Groundwater modelling can be used to exoplore the flow pattern and their impact on local and regional recharge. Delineation of the aquifer is needed with respect to low recharge, high evaporation, high run off, low gw flow rate, low hydraulic conductivity and their association with Arsenic mobilization.
