Biswajit Debnath, Mrinal Kanti Roy
The Digha coastal belt of east Midnapore district in West Bengal enjoys a unique landscape, which is the result of combined action of marine, fluvial & aeolian agencies. The coastal tract is formed of unconsolidated clay, silt and sand of marine origin together with some fluviatile and aeolian Sediment. The changing pattern of land use is also noticed in study area, which has direct and adverse influences upon the surface soil. This paper attempt to discuss the changing characteristics and elements of surface soil of coastal plain areas in digha and how it affects on the surface soil; that is its properties and elements variation. The study is based on field works done in different parts of coastal digha and extensive laboratory observation.
