Map: Possible Oil Spill Spread In Sundarban !!!!

December 11, 2014, by aHaSaN, category Environmental Issues

This map is created to show the possible spread area of the oil spill that occurred inside Sundarban Forest on 09 Dec 2014.

The bands are of each 12 km linear distance. It was assumed that with each tide, if the average tidal velocity of water is 2 km/hour the oil may spread up to 12 km. During the flow oil will move north/upstream and during ebb the oil will flow south/downstream.

The actual spill distribution will depend on many factors and hopefully will not cover full extend of this buffers. This is to provide visualization aid to anyone interested to see possible affected area.

Authors assumes no responsibility of the accuracy of the map.

So, what do you think ?
