Biological productivity of the Indian Ocean
The Indian Ocean - An environmental overview
During the International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE), 1962-65, the Indian Ocean was defined as the area between 25 degrees N and 40 degrees S latitudes and 45 degrees E longitudes. This region included all the straits, ...
Marine nitrogen cycling- Some recent observations in the northwestern Indian Ocean
(Trivandrum: University of Kerala, 1987)
Published estimates of the rate of denitrification in the Arabian Sea have been evaluated and some new data on the nitrogen cycle have been presented Secondary nitrite maxima and nitrate reduction appear to be associated ...
Biological diversity in the seas around India: Present status and major threats
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1986)
Particulate organic matter in the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa and its relationship with phytoplankton production
In the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa, particulate organic carbon (POC) varied from 0.52 to 2.51 mg l-1 and from 0.28 to 5.24 mg l-1 and particulate phosphorus (PP) varied from 0.71 to 5.18 mu g l-1 and from 0.78 to ...
Oceanography of the northern Arabian Sea
The euphotic zone of the northern Arabian Sea ranges from 20-60 m with an average depth of about 40 m. Surface temperatures range from 22.5 to 28.5 degrees C, increasing from north to south. At 1000 m, the temperature is ...
Food Components of the Andaman Sea
Detrital carbon in the Andaman Sea constitutes about 92% of the total particulate carbon while phytoplankton and zooplankton constitute small fractions of the total suspended matter. Latitudinal relationship between ...
Adaptations in Phytoplankton to Changing Conditions in Tropical Estuaries
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1980)
Experimental studies on phytoplankton organisms from Cochin backwaters (a tropical estuary) have shown that many algal forms are adapted to changing conditions of salinity, light and nutrients. Photosynthesis in 12 species ...
