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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Formation and weathering assessment of oil-suspended sediment aggregates through a laboratory investigation
Formation of oil-suspended sediment aggregates (OSAs) is believed to be one of the natural cleaning processes in the marine environment. In this study, we have investigated the formation processes of OSAs under different ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
