Seafloor and sediment characteristics in INDEX AREA
(Metal Mining Agency of Japan, 1997)
Seafloor surveys and sediment sampling during the INDEX (Indian Deep-Sea Environmental Experiment) studies in the Central Indian Basin, resulted in identification of Test and Reference Areas, as well of establishment of ...
Influence of seabed topography on the distribution of manganese nodules and associated features in the Central Indian Basin: A study based on photographic observations
The distribution of manganese nodules and associated rock outcrops and sediment cover in the Central Indian Basin (10 degrees-16 degrees S, 73 degrees-82 degrees E), were studied from seabed photographs in relation to ...
Benthic disturbance and monitoring experiment in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Int. Society of Offshore and Polar Engineering, Colorado, USA, 1997)
Environmental impact assessment studies for deep-sea manganese nodule mining have been initiated in the Central indian Ocean Basin since 1995. As a part of the first phase for collecting the benthic baseline data, echosounding, ...
Distribution of manganese nodules, rocks and sediments in the Central Indian Ocean Basin: Factors influencing performance of mining system
(Publ. and Inf. Dir., New Delhi, India, 1994)
Manganese nodule abundances in the Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB) as noted from seabed photographs (nil to 18.4 kg/m sup(2)) and grabs (nil to 21.5 kg/m sup(2)) are variable. The relative abundance varies from zero to ...
Indian deepsea environment experiment (index): Achievements and applications
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, Cupertino, CA (USA), 1999)
Significant results have been obtained from an extensive database generated on water column and benthic baseline conditions. Seafloor surveys have resulted in selection of suitable test and reference areas, and in ...
