A study was conducted on soil texture in 24 stations distributed in the western, eastern and central Indian Sundarbans during 2017. The region is dominated by mangroves although the western sector is more prone to anthropogenic disturbances. It is observed that in all the stations sand exhibited maximum percentage (32% - 55%), followed by silt (25%-32%) and clay (11%- 25%).
