Understanding our seas: National Institute of Oceanography, Goa
(Current Science Association, 2015)
The present article summarizes the research done at the CSIR–National Institute of Oceanography in 2014 in ocean science, resources and technology. Significant research has been conducted on air–sea interactions and coastal ...
Characteristics, seasonal distribution and surface degradation features of microplastic pellets along the Goa coast, India
Microplastic pellets (MPPs) are ubiquitous contaminants, recognised as a serious threat to the biota in coastal, estuarine and marine environment. The distribution, abundance, weathering and chemical characteristics of ...
Identification of sources of tar balls deposited along the Goa coast, India, using fingerprinting techniques
Deposition of tar balls along the coast of Goa, India is a common phenomenon during the southwest monsoon. Representative tar ball samples collected from various beaches of Goa and one Bombay High (BH) crude oil sample ...
Backtrack modeling to locate the origin of tar balls depositing along the west coast of India
Tar ball (TB) deposition along the West Coast of India (WCI) is a common phenomenon during the southwest monsoon season, particularly along the coast of Goa and Gujarat, and it is a major concern to the stake holders. Our ...
Source investigation of the tar balls deposited along the Gujarat coast, India, using chemical fingerprinting and transport modeling techniques
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
Deposition of tar balls (TBs) along the south Gujarat coast, situated on the west coast of India (WCI), commonly occurs during the southwest monsoon season. Several offshore oil fields off the Mumbai-Gujarat coast, and ...
Modelling of Oil-Sediment Aggregates Trajectories Along Gulf of Khambhat, West Coast of India
(Springer, Singapore, 2021)
Oil spill accidents on the marine waters impose great threat to the marine organism, humans and economic. Continuous efforts have been made to achieve effective mitigation measures to avoid the damage to the marine ...
Oil pollution in the Eastern Arabian Sea from invisible sources: A multi-technique approach
The Eastern Arabian Sea (EAS) is affected by oil pollution, as often evidenced by the presence of tarballs along the West Coast of India (WCI). Tarball samples collected during May 2017 along the Goa coast were subject to ...
Assessing the source of oil deposited in the surface sediment of Mormugao Port, Goa - A case study of MV Qing incident
In June 2016, a cruise vessel was grounded in the Mormugao Port, resulting in unnoticed oil spill. The surface water and sediment samples were collected from the vicinity of the ship, and also an oil sample from the ship ...
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, ...
