Since the last decade, the South West (SW) region of Bangladesh has been found to be already engaged in practicing floating garden, cage culture, crab culture, etc., as the adaptation strategies to overcome the adverse effects of climate change (CC). Considering both, without CC (1961-1990) and with CC (1981-2010), this paper analyzes the trends of spatial, temporal, and extreme event indices for both temperature and rainfall based on fifty years (1961-2010) of data. Data have been collected from five Bangladesh Meteorological Departments distributed over the SW region and Rclimdex software is used for quality control and calculation of indices of rainfall as well as of temperature. During the monsoon, rainfall has been found with higher variability in magnitude as well as in spatial distribution. Over the last decade, both the highest monthly maximum 1-day rainfall and the highest monthly maximum consecutive 5-day rainfall were observed at Jessor, where water logging is a severe problem. Year to year variation of maximum summer temperature is increasing whereas minimum winter temperature is found to be decreasing. Additionally, the decreasing trends of consecutive wet days indicate that duration of the extreme rainfalls have become shorter. In the case of daily temperature, the winter trend has been drastically changed from increasing to decreasing. But in the case of other seasons, increasing temperature trends are found to be increasing at a faster rate. This study identifies the locations that are already vulnerable to changing condition and will be further exacerbated in the upcoming decades. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
