Weather in Sundarban

The climate is humid sub-tropical, tempered by the sea. Temperatures rise from daily minima of 2-4°C in winter to over 32°C during the monsoon and a maximum around 43°C in March. Rainfall is heavy and the humidity averages 70-80% due to the closeness of the Bay of Bengal. 80% of the rain falls during the monsoon between mid-June and October, cleansing saline soils of their salt. From then to mid March the weather is dry until mid- March, a period when evapotranspiration exceeds precipitation. During the monsoon over half the Sundarbans can be submerged under water. Conditions are most saline in February to April, when the depletion of soil moisture occurs at the same time as freshwater flows from upstream are reduced. From 1983 to 2003 the annual sea level rise was 3.14 cm compared with the world average of 2 cm and the outer islands began to erode away. A 25 cm rise in sea level would destroy 40% of the Sundarbans, and a 45 cm rise by the end of the 21st century would destroy 75% (Colette, 2007). Rising sea levels also increase salt-water intrusion into aquifers.
