Scientists from the United States would work with the researchers of Tilka Manjhi Bhagalpur University (TNBU) to analyse the quality of water of river Ganga and prepare a map of riverbed through Global Positioning System (GPS). The Inland Waterways Authority of India will support  the effort with a well equipped vessel to aid the research, between October 21 and 31.The School of Natural Resources and Environment of Michigan University would provide a specially developed computer programme and Doppler machines to study a 250-km stretch between Kahalgaon in Bhagalpur and Patna. The scientists from United States have shown interest in Ganga. The team from the US will be led by Dr Mike Wiley and includes the noted specialist on Zooplankton, Dr Umair, who will also train TNBU scientists to carry on deeper investigations.
