Glacial to Holocene fluctuations in hydrography and productivity along the southwestern continental margin of India
Oxygen isotope and sedimentological records of a sediment core from the southwestern continental margin of India are used to reconstruct the fluctuations in sea surface hydrography and productivity during the last deglaciation. ...
Analysis of sup(210)Pb in sediment trap samples and sediments from the northern Arabian Sea: Evidence for boundary scavenging
The concentrations of sup(210)Pb were measured in particles intercepted by sediment traps deployed at 1024 m and 3024 m in the northern Arabian Sea for a period of 1 year from November 1986 to October 1987. The sup(210)Pb ...
Clay minerals as palaeomonsoon proxies: Evaluation and relevance to the late Quaternary records from SE Arabian Sea
(NCAOR, Goa, 2005)
Palaeoclimatic studies are largely dependent on the quality of records and a prudent use of environmental proxy indicators. In this study, the factors affecting the detrital clay minerals in marine environment and their ...
Indian summer monsoon variability during the Holocene as recorded in sediments of the Arabian Sea: Timing and implications
Indian monsoon precipitation fluctuated significantly during the Holocene and a reliable reconstruction of the timing of the events and their implications is of great benefit to our understanding of the effect and response ...
Geochemistry of sediments
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 2001)
Considering the potential of elemental data in marine sediments as diagnostic tools of various geological and oceanographic processes, sediment geochemical data from the Indian Ocean region has been reviewed in this article. ...
Geochemistry of surficial sediments along the central southwest coast of India - Seasonal changes in regional distribution
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2003)
The coastal sediments (129 samples) of central- southwest coast of India, in and around Cochin, the second biggest industrial city along the west coast of India, were analyzed for their textural and geochemical fractions ...
