Pulse of climate change in Indian Sunderbans: Impact on phytoplankton community

Sea levels on the Indian sub-continent are increasing at the rate of about 2.5 mm every year; the increase is greater in the eastern coast, with an estimated sea level rise of about 3.14 mm/year. This suggests that mean annual sea levels in the Indian sub continent will be some 3 cm higher in 2012 and 15 cm higher in 2060 than what it was in 2000.
