Orbital frequencies in radiolarian assemblages of the central Indian Ocean: implications on the Indian summer monsoon
Radiolarian distribution in surface sediments and its relationships with overlying surface oceanography provided impetus for down-core faunal variation related to changes in monsoon intensity due to the Earth's orbital ...
Ammolagena clavata (Jones and Parker, 1860), an agglutinated benthic foraminiferal species - first report from the Recent sediments, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean region
(Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research, 2004)
The rare presence of the agglutinated foraminiferal species Ammolagena clavata is presented for the first time from the Recent sediments of the Indian Ocean region. This species has previously been reported in Recent ...
Biogeochemical characteristics of the surface sediments along the western continental shelf of India
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)
Surface sediments from the western continental shelf of India were analysed for total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (TN), total hydrolysable carbohydrates (TCHO) and proteins (PRT) during the late summer monsoon ...
Pre- and post-monsoonal changes in grain size and heavy minerals in the sediments from Kalbadevi Bay, Ratnagiri, west coast of India
(NISCAIR (CSIR), 2011)
Sediments from the Kalbadevi Bay, Ratnagiri collected during January, May and October have been studied for processes responsible for the observed grain size variations and heavy mineral distribution. The study shows ...
Geochemical characterization of the Krishna–Godavari and Mahanadi offshore basin (Bay of Bengal) sediments: A comparative study of provenance
The Krishna–Godavari and Mahanadi rivers drain the east coast of India and deposit the sediment load into the Krishna–Godavari and Mahanadi offshore basins along the western margin of the Bay of Bengal. Here we report the ...
Geochemistry of sediments
(Oxford and IBH, New Delhi, 2001)
Considering the potential of elemental data in marine sediments as diagnostic tools of various geological and oceanographic processes, sediment geochemical data from the Indian Ocean region has been reviewed in this article. ...
Partitioning and speciation of trace metal diagenesis in differing depositional environments in the sediments of the Oman margin
Organic-rich sediment samples collected from a transect within, and below, the Oman Margin oxygen minimum zone (OMZ)were analysed using a sequential leaching technique to characterise the diagenetic behaviour and speciation ...
Geochemistry of surficial sediments along the central southwest coast of India - Seasonal changes in regional distribution
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2003)
The coastal sediments (129 samples) of central- southwest coast of India, in and around Cochin, the second biggest industrial city along the west coast of India, were analyzed for their textural and geochemical fractions ...
Gas-hydrates in Krishna-Godavari and Mahanadi basins: New data
(Geological Society of India, 2012)
Mercury in sediments of Ulhas estuary
Hg levels in water, suspended particulate matter and sediment of the Ulhas estuary are under considerable environmental stress due to the indiscriminate release of effluents from a variety of industries including chlor-alkali ...
