Macrobenthic communities of the coastal waters of Dabhol, west coast of India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2002)
Macrobenthic community of a shallow subtidal (5-20 m) muddy deposit off Dabhol was investigated. Sediment comprised mainly of silt and clay with less of sand. Dominance of clayey-silt fraction reflects on active flocculation ...
Monitoring effects of simulated disturbance at INDEX site: Current status and future activities
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2003)
During the Indian Deep-Sea Environment Experiment (INDEX), greater than 6000 cu.m of sediment was resuspended 5 m above seafloor. Data collected from deep-towed photography, sediment traps, sediment coring and CTD operations ...
Environmental influences on the trawl catches in a bay-estuarine system of Goa, west coast of India
The degree of relationship between trawl catch and environmental variables was assessed in a bay-estuarine system of Goa, west coast of India using multivariate techniques. The demersal fish assemblage was dominated by the ...
Population characteristics of the mole crab, Hippa adactyla Fabricius, in the intertidal sediment at Kavaratti Atoll, Lakshadweep Islands
(Rosenstiel School of Marine Sicence, 1998)
Some population characteristics of a little known mole crab Hippa adactyla from the sandy intertidal habitat of Kavaratti atoll, Lakshadweep islands, were studied for understanding the resource potentials besides some ...
Overexploitation of marine living resources
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa, 1994)
Immediate response of meio and macrobenthos to disturbance caused by a benthic disturber
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, Cupertino, CA (USA), 1999)
The probable impact of nodule mining on benthic biota was studied by creating a benthic disturbance. During the predisturbance study in the Central Indian Basin, box core samples were analyzed for the distribution, composition ...
Organic enrichment and benthic fauna–Some ecological consideration.
In the present study, synoptic data on the structure of macroinfauna and total organic content of sediment collected from different sources were analyzed to look for patterns of association consistent with conceptual model ...
Deep sea benthos of the western and central Indian Ocean
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 1992)
Quantitative investigations on deep sea benthos from 112 stations between lat. 21 degrees N-21 degrees S and long. 51 degrees E-94 degrees E and in the depth range of 1500 to 6000 m, revealed a rich biota having relatively ...
Restoration of deep-sea macrofauna after simulated benthic disturbance in the Central Indian Basin
(Taylor & Francis, 2005)
Macrofaunal communities of the Central Indian Basin (CIB) were sampled with a spade before (June 1997), and immediately after (August 1997), and 44 months (April 2001) after a simulated benthic disturbance for polymetallic ...
