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 ...
Source and dispersal of suspended sediment in the macro-tidal Gulf of Kachchh
The macro-tidal Gulf of Kachchh, covering nearly 7000 km sup(2), is located about 150 km south of the Indus River mouth. In spite of semi-arid climate and lack of major rivers flowing into it, the Gulf is highly turbid ...
On the dominance of pre-existing swells over wind seas along the west coast of India
Wave data collected off Goa along the west coast of India during February 1996–May 1997 has been subjected to spectral analysis, and swell and wind sea parameters have been estimated by separation frequency method. Dominance ...
Monitoring shoreline environment of Paradip, east coast of India using remote sensing
(Current Science Association, 2009)
In the present study, multi-temporal satellite images of Indian Remote Sensing Satellites (IRS1D and IRS P6 - Resourcesat) from 1998 to 2005 is used to monitor the coastal environment of Paradip, east coast of India. The ...
Bacterial bioluminescence response to long-term exposure to reverse osmosis treated effluents from dye industries
(NRC Research Press, 2014)
The bacterial bioluminescence assay is one of the novel means for toxicity detection. The bioluminescence response of 2 marine bioluminescent bacteria was tested upon their long-term exposure to 9 different reverse osmosis ...
Coastal circulation along the central west coast of India during cyclone Phyan: measurements and numerical simulations
Measurements and numerical simulations carried out off Mumbai coast for the period 22 October to 22 November 2009 showed significant variations in water level and currents during cyclone Phyan. Changes in the meridional ...
Wave transformation and attenuation along the west coast of India: Measurements and numerical simulations
(World Scientific Publishing, 2013)
Waves measured at a few locations along the west coast of India were analyzed to study modification and attenuation of wave energy in the nearshore regions. It has been found that the reduction in wave height is relatively ...
Dynamics of chromophoric dissolved organic matter in Mandovi and Zuari estuaries — A study through in situ and satellite data
The spatial and temporal distribution of absorption of chromophoric dissolved organic matter at 440 nm (a sub (CDOM) (440)) in the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries situated along the west coast of India, has been analysed. The ...
