Potential aftermath of Tropical Cyclonic Disasters on the Physico-chemical Characteristics of Soil in Satkhira, Bangladesh
On account of evaluating some selected physico-chemical attributes of soil and detecting the changes in soil health over a period of the last 20 years due to colossal storms like Aila and Mora, befallen in coastal areas, an investigation was carried out at Shyamnagar Upazila of Satkhira district, Bangladesh. The amount of sand was less than the silt and clay fractions in the studied sites. Silt contents were significantly augmented in study sites over 20 years. Consequently, siltation has been taken place in these sites for the last few years. In the area of investigation, soil salinity was associated with the development of silt texture, altered from clay loam texture.
