Mount Everest. tariqbd.com . In 1808, the British began the Great Trigonometric Survey of India to determine the location and names of the world's highest mountains. Starting in southern India, the survey teams gradually moved northward using giant 500 kg (1100 lb) theodolites (each requiring 12 men to carry) to measure heights as accurately as possible. They reached the Himalayan foothills by the 1830s, but Nepal was unwilling to allow the British to enter the country because of suspicions of political aggression and possible annexation. Several requests by the surveyors to enter Nepal were turned down. The British were forced to continue their observations from Terai, a region south of Nepal which is parallel to the Himalayas. Conditions in Terai were difficult owing to torrential rains and malaria — three survey officers died from malaria while two others had to retire owing to failing health. Nonetheless, in 1847, the British pressed on and began detailed observations of the Himalayan peaks from observation stations up to 240 km (150 mi) away. Weather restricted work to the last three months of the year. In November 1847, Andrew Waugh, the British Surveyor General of India made a number of observations from Sawajpore station located in the eastern end of the Himalayas. At the time, Kangchenjunga was considered the highest peak in the world, and with interest he noted a peak beyond it, some 230 km (140 mi) away. John Armstrong, one of Waugh's officials, also saw ...

Sugata Hazra says sea level rise is causing loss of land, increased cyclone intensity and bigger storm surges in the Sunderbans islands south of Calcutta, India. Hazra says these changes, which have even caused some islands to disappear below the sea, are creating environmental refugees. Hazra is a professor of oceanography at Jadavpur University in Calcutta, India. This video was shot in November, 2008 by Daniel Grossman.
Dr. Pranabes Sanyal says that not all Royal Bengal Tigers are man eaters or man killers even if though they are fierce and capable of killing people (and steal, or lift, cattle). Research Sanyal has conducted shows that global warming is causing Bengal Tigers on the Sunderbans islands near Calcutta to change their habitats, invading territory occupied or frequented by people. Yet he say tigers are often unfairly all labeled killers. Sanyal is a visiting faculty member of Jadavpur University in Calcutta, India. He is also president of the Calcutta Wildlife Society. Previously, he worked for the India Forest Service for 38 years, including a 6-year position as field director of Sundarban Tiger Reserve. This video was shot in Calcutta in November, 2008 by Daniel Grossman.
