Dhaka : American space research institute NASA will conduct a study on the weather and climate change in Bangladesh.
"NASA will conduct the research under its South and Southeast Composition, Cloud, Climate Coupling Regional Study Programme," Hal Maring, chief scientist of NASA's Earth Science Division was quoted as saying by the Daily Star.
