Demarcation of inland vessels' limit off Mormugao port region, India: A pilot study for the safety of inland vessels using wave modelling
The Ministry of Shipping desires to revise the inland vessels' limit (IVL) notification based on scientific rationale to improve the safety of vessels and onboard personnel. The Mormugao port region extending up to the ...
Taluka level environmental sensitivity index (ESI) and vulnerability mapping for oil spills: A pilot study from Goa state, India
(Sultan Qaboos Univ., 2010)
Coastlines are at risk when floating oil slicks reach the shoreline. Oil spill causes major stress on the marine environment. To deal with oil spill problem in the coastal area, Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps ...
Tar ball pollution: Research effort and management strategy
(Indian Coast Guard, 2017)
Simulation of Trajectories of Tar Ball Transport to the Goa Coast
Arrival of tar balls to the Goa coast during pre- and southwest monsoon seasons has been a regular phenomenon in the past few years. In one such event, we observed tar ball deposits along the Goa coast during August 2010, ...
'Shamal' swells in the Arabian Sea and their influence along the west coast of India
(American Geophysical Union, 2011)
Wave data collected off Ratnagiri, Goa and Dwarka along the west coast of India during winter season (NE monsoon and early pre‐monsoon) present distinct wave characteristics with periodicity ranging between 2 and 5 days ...
On the spatial structure and time evolution of shamal winds over the Arabian Sea – a case study through numerical modelling.
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2014)
Shamal events are extra-tropical weather systems which occur in winter (cold and dry winds) as well as summer (hot and humid winds) with strong northwesterly or northerly winds blowing over the Arabian Peninsula. We have ...
Coastal vulnerability assessment of Puducherry coast, India, using the analytical hierarchical process
(European Geosciences Union, 2013)
As a consequence of change in global climate, an increased frequency of natural hazards such as storm surges, tsunamis and cyclones, is predicted to have dramatic affects on the coastal communities and ecosystems by virtue ...
Remotely sensed chlorophyll: A putative trophic link for explaining variability in Indian oil sardine stocks
(Coastal Education & Research Foundation, 2012)
The landing of Indian oil sardines, Sardinella longiceps Valenciennes, 1847, along the southwest coast of India is highly variable. A few physical parameters and processes correlated with sardine landing could not establish ...
Wave-induced nearshore flow patterns in the vicinity of Cochin harbour, India
The wave-induced nearshore circulation and the sediment exchanges between two littoral cells along the beaches bordering Vypeen and Chellanam islands in the vicinity of Fort Cochin are examined. In general, the flow within ...
Identifying the source of tar balls deposited along the beaches of Goa in 2013 and comparing with historical data collected along the west coast of India
Deposition of oil residues, also known as tar balls, is a seasonal phenomenon, and it occurs only in the southwest monsoon season along the west coast of India. This has become a serious environmental issue, as Goa is a ...
