Abstract
Rameswaram Island, Southeast of India is bordered by both the Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay on the southern and the northern sides respectively, is unique in nature and subjected to differential season changes prevailing on both sides. The extreme southeastern part of Rameswaram Island, known as Dhanushkodi Foreland, a long sand spit of about 20 km length is formed up to Arimunai and it tends to grow longer and wider. The southern side of erstwhile Dhanushkodi township facing the Gulf of Mannar underwent severe erosion and subsidence between AD February 1948, January 1949 and particularly the cyclone of AD 1964. Consequently, the southern part of the township comprising places of worship, residential areas, roads, etc. over a width of ~ 500 m along the N-S direction and a stretch of 7 km along WNW-ESE direction was destroyed by wave attack and submerged to the depth of 5 m. Continuous observation of water quality, sea bed and beach sediments, beach profile and shoreline studies combined with coastal hydrodynamic modeling reveal the underlying process taking place. This unveiling of fact shall help the policy makers to solve the issues related to Sethusamudram Shipping Canal project.
