Controls on organic carbon distribution in sediments from the eastern Arabian Sea margin
Sediment cores from the upper continental slope of the eastern Arabian Sea have high organic carbon (OC), CaCO sub(3), and sand content at the top. The values decrease with increasing depth in the Holocene and Upper ...
New evidence for enhanced preservation of organic carbon in contact with oxygen minimum zone on the western continental slope of India
In order to evaluate the reason for organic enrichment on the western continental slope of India, we provide Rock-Eval pyrolysis data of 25 surficial sediment samples from this area. Results show that the organic matter ...
Provenance and distribution of clay minerals in the sediments of the western continental shelf and slope of India
The distribution of clay minerals from 156 surficial sediments of the western continental margin of India, ranging from 17 to 2000 m water depth, indicate that there are three principal sources of sediments. The illite and ...
Origin and significance of high-grade phosphorite in a sediment core from the continental slope off Goa, India
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1995)
A phosphorite crust was found at 380-390 cm depth interval of a sediment core collected from the topographic high occurring on the continental slope off Goa. This crust is fragile and grey to light brown in colour. Carbonate ...
