Significance of correspondence between river discharge and proloculus size of benthic foraminifera in paleomonsoonal studies
Variations in the mean proloculus size (MPS) of the benthic foraminiferal species Rotalidium annectens were studied in a core collected off Karwar (20 m water depth), on the west coast of India. Comparison of downcore ...
Distribution, factor analysis and ecology of benthic foraminifera within inner shelf regime of Vengurla-Bhatkal sector, West Coast, India
(Geological Society of India, 1987)
One hundred and two taxa of benthic foraminifera are reported from the neritic environment (15-60 m) of Vengurla - Bhatkal area. Q-mode factor analysis reveals 6 important foraminiferal assemblages accounting for 92% of ...
Benthic foraminifera as pollution indices in the marine environment of west coast of India
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 1984)
Two ecosystems affected by acidic pollutants (Thana Creek, Bombay and inshore area of Trivandrum, Kerala) and two other ecosystems affected by alkaline pollutants (Cola Bay, Goa and inshore area of Karwar, Karnataka) were ...
Proloculus size variation in Recent benthic foraminifera: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
Ratios of dimorphic (microspheric/megalospheric) forms of Foraminifera are affected by temperature and hence are useful in paleoclimatic studies. In some cases, however, it is not possible to distinguish between the dimorphic ...
Influence of estuaries on shelf foraminiferal species
Dabhol-bhatkal stretch of the west coast of India is marked by a number of estuaries. Cavarotalia annectens is selected to monitor the influence of these estuaries on the inner shelf foraminiferal fauna. The percentage ...
A checklist of benthic foraminiferids from the inner shelf of Dabhol-Vengurla region, Arabian Sea
(Geological Society of India, 1979)
Sixty-four benthonic foraminiferids are reported from Dabhol-Vengurla innershore neritic environment and they are listed in the order of their relative abundance. Small microenvironments or milieus created by the dominance ...
