Phytoplankton response to the contrasting physical regimes in the eastern Arabian Sea during north east monsoon
Phytoplankton abundance and composition in two contrasting physical regimes - convective mixing in the northeastern Arabian Sea (NEAS) and Arabian Sea mini warm pool (ASMWP) in the southeastern Arabian Sea (SEAS) - were ...
Enhancement of oceanic nitrous oxide emissions by storms
Time Series Observations in the North Indian Ocean
Unlike the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean, the northern Indian Ocean is geographically unique. The bounding to the north by the Asian landmass has a profound impact on the biogeochemistry of the region. The Arabian Sea ...
Dissolved methane in Indian freshwater reservoirs
Emission of methane (CH4), a potent greenhouse gas, from tropical reservoirs is of interest because such reservoirs experience conducive conditions for CH4 production through anaerobic microbial activities. It has been ...
The Arabian Sea as a high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll region during the late southwest monsoon
(European Geosciences Union, 2010)
Extensive observations were made during the late southwest monsoon of 2004 over the Indian and Omani shelves, and along a transect that extended from the southern coast of Oman to the central west coast of India, tracking ...
Benthic mineralization and nutrient exchange over the inner continental shelf of western India.
(European Geosciences Union, 2014)
The western Indian continental shelf is one of the most productive coastal systems of the world ocean. This system experiences extreme changes in its oxygen regime, being normoxic from November to May and suboxic ...
Spatial variability in phytoplankton community structure along the eastern Arabian Sea during the onset of south-west monsoon
The Arabian Sea experiences moderate to weak upwelling along the south-west coast of India, which subsequently propagates towards the north. This causes variation in plankton community composition, which is addressed in ...
Positive Indian ocean dipole events prevent anoxia off the west coast of India
(European Geosciences Union, 2017)
The seasonal upwelling along the west coast of India (WCI) brings nutrient-rich, oxygen-poor subsurface waters to the continental shelf, favoring very low oxygen concentrations in the surface waters during late boreal ...
Seasonal oxygen deficiency over the western continental shelf of India
The North Indian Ocean contains about two-third of the global continental-margin area affected by natural oxygen deficiency (O2 less than 0.2 mL L sup(-1)) in the water column. Also, the littoral countries of this ...
