Late Pleistocene carbonate sediments and rocks on the western continental shelf of India
(Pune: Nowrosjee Wadia College, 1989)
Mineralogy of the carbonate sediments - western continental shelf of India
An X-ray diffraction study of forty-six sediment samples and three oolitic limestone samples from the western continental shelf of India shows that aragonite is the dominant carbonate mineral (99% maximum), followed by ...
On the origin of the cohesive and non-cohesive sediment boundary on the western shelf of India
(Goa: National Inst of Oceanography, 1987)
Influence of estuaries on shelf sediment texture
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1986)
Granulometric analyses of sediments on the western continental shelf of India demonstrate that the texture of inner continental shelf sediments (10 to 60 m water depth) appears to be determined by the size and number of ...
Seabed surveys of Victoria harbour, Mahe, Seychelles
The seabed surveys in the Victoria Harbour, Mahe, Seychelles shows that the prominent feature is the navigational channel aligned in the northeast-southwest direction with a width varying from 300 to 450m. The depth in the ...
Fluctuation in glacial and interglacial sediment discharge of the River Indus as seen in the core from the Arabian Sea
Sediment core from the upper continental slope off Saurashtra Coast has been analysed for CaCO sub(3) and coarse fraction contents in addition to planktonic foraminifera and clay mineralogy. Based on CaCO sub(3) and ...
Superficial mineral resources of the Indian Ocean
The sea floor of the Indian Ocean and the continental margins bordering the ocean are covered by a wide variety of terrigenous, biogenous and anthigenic mineral deposits. The biogenous deposits in the Indian Ocean comprise ...
Clay mineral distribution on tropical shelf: an example from the western shelf of India
(Indian Association of Sedimentology, 1989)
Seventy-five sediment samples collected from the Kerala continental shelf and slope during the 17th and 71st Cruises of RV Gaveshani were analysed by X-ray diffraction for clay mineral content. The distribution of total ...
Geoscientific investigations on the Indian coast: Their application to interpret the paleoclimates and future sea level changes with special reference to greenhouse effect
Objectives of this paper are: (1) To delineate the paleo sea level fluctuations and erosional environmental changes along the Indian Coast and their relationship with the changing coastline and human settlements in the ...
Exploration of the continental margins of India
(International Hydrographic Bureau, 1987)
In mid 1970's the National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India prepared a plan for systematic regional, geological and geophysical surveys of the continental margins of India. This involved over 75,000 km of underway ...
