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 ...
Distribution patterns of Recent planktonic foraminifera in surface sediments of the western continental margin of India
Study of Recent plankton foraminifera from the surface sediment samples of western continental margin of India reveals the ecological preferences of the different planktonic foraminifera species in the area. Higher absolute ...
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, ...
On the occurrence of ferromanganese micronodules from the sediments of the Bengal Fan: A high terrigenous sediment input region
Studies of 13 samples (10 surface sediments and 3 cores) from across the middle fan region of the Bay of Bengal reveal the presence of micronodules (area 0.22 million km@u2@@) over the entire bay. These micronodules have ...
Provenance and distribution of clay minerals in the sediments of the western continental shelf and slope of India
The distribution of clay minerals from 156 surficial sediments of the western continental margin of India, ranging from 17 to 2000 m water depth, indicate that there are three principal sources of sediments. The illite and ...
