Size distribution and carbonate content of the sediments of the western shelf of India
(National Institute of Sciences of India, 1968)
Sediment samples collected during the 25th cruise of I.N.S. KISTNA (Indian Programme of I.I.O.E.) were analysed for grain size and carbonate content. The shelf sediments show well defined zonation, except where river-borne ...
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 ...
The Indus paradox
(London : New Science Publications, 1984)
Lack of cross-shelf transport of sediments on the western margin of India: Evidence from clay mineralogy
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1989)
The distribution of clay minerals on the inner shelf, outer shelf and in a 6 month sediment trap on the western continental shelf of India has been studied. Marked compositional differences in the inner shelf clays ...
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 ...
Microbial origin of the phosphorites of the western continental shelf of India
Phosphatised algal nodules were recovered by dredging from the western continental shelf off Goa at depths ranging from 70 to 150 m. Energy dispersive X-ray analysis indicates that the phosphorus present in the algal nodules ...
Clay mineral distribution on the Kerala continental shelf and slope
(Geological Society of India, 1983)
Seventy-five sediment samples collected from the Kerala continental shelf and slope during the 17th and 71st Cruises of @iRV gaveshani@@ were analysed by X-ray diffraction for clay mineral cntent. The distribution of total ...
Carbonate mineralogy and faunal relationship in tropical shallow water marine sediments: Cape Comorin, India
The carbonate mineralogy of Recent sediments from the western and eastern continental shelves around Cape Comorin off the southern tip of India was determined by X-ray diffraction analyses. The results show that in the ...
