Floods in the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna river basins in Bangladesh: An overview on Charland settlement relocations pattern

Shafi Noor Islam; Sandra Reinstädtler; Albrecht Gnauck

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2022, Pages 5-28

https://doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2021.279916.1036

Abstract
  The physical characteristics of geographic location, river morphology, and the monsoon climate render Bangladesh highly vulnerable to natural disasters, primarily floods and cyclones. River flood has exerted a more significant impact on the culture, society, and economy of Bangladesh. The Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna ...  Read More

Mohsen Ahmadee; Morad Ghanbarpouri; Abbas Khashei Siuki; Sayed Reza Hashemi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2022, Pages 29-40

https://doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2022.337368.1048

Abstract
  There has been a great need to improve agricultural yield in arid and semi-arid regions in countries like Iran due to climate conditions and poor soils quality. Zeolite, as an abundant mineral in Iran, has been proposed to be used as substitutions for chemical fertilizers to increase the yield and yield ...  Read More

The Response of Grazing Land Footprint to Natural and Anthropogenic Disturbances - A Panel Analysis

Zareena Begum Irfan; A Chandhini

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2022, Pages 59-94

https://doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2022.317597.1045

Abstract
  Rapid urbanisation has led to emergence of urban agglomerations, which are the primary drivers of unsustainable land use trends in recent years. In terms of less restrictive laws, grazing lands are the ones that are easiest to obtain for developmental purposes. The livestock sector is also booming in ...  Read More

The effects of rhizobium strains on drought resistance, yield and yield components of common bean in dry land conditions.

Akbar Hemmati

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2022, Pages 95-110

https://doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2022.337983.1049

Abstract
  Investigations have shown that the seed inoculation with rhizobium bacteria was caused higher nitrogen fixation and consequently higher grain yield of bean in dry lands. To investigate the effects of the seed inoculation with rhizobium bacteria’s strains on yield and drought resistance of common ...  Read More

Comparative evaluation of soil aggregate stability using classical and fractal methods

Shiva Mohammadian Khorasani

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2022, Pages 111-127

https://doi.org/10.22034/wpj.2021.260827.1018

Abstract
  Improving water and soil productivity and its management by considering soil structure, soil textures and soil physics parameters are an important criterion for the suitable management of soil and water resources. One of the relatively new methods proposed to explain soil structure in a quantitative ...  Read More
