Several PIs from the physical-science team of the ONR MURI project are also collaborating on a National Science Foundation study investigating coupled fluvial-tectonic-basin interactions in the Bengal Basin and Ganges-Brahmaputra River delta. This project is led by ONR co-PI Michael Steckler at Columbia University, and also includes other ONR co-PIs Steven Goodbred (Vanderbilt) and Leonardo Seeber (Columbia). The project is funded through NSF International Program’s Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE). The project title is “Life on a tectonically active delta: Convergence of earth science and geohazard research in Bangladesh with education and capacity building”. More information can be found at the project homepage  To date the most important links between the studies are expanded capacity for monitoring and understanding tectonic deformation of the basin and its impacts on subsidence, sedimentation, and river behavior.
