BOBMEX: The Bay of Bengal Monsoon Experiment
(American Meteorological Society, 2001)
The first observational experiment under the Indian Climate Research Programme, called the Bay of Bengal Monsoon Experiment (BOBMEX), was carried out during July-August 1999. BOBMEX was aimed at measurements of important ...
Assimilation potential of water column biota: Mesocosm-based evaluations
(Tata Energy Research Institute, India, 2003)
This chapter presents a generalized picture of various aspects of assimilation by native biota and underscores the importance of safeguarding the environment from excessive discharge of nutrient-rich effluents, even though ...
Seasonal spreading of the Persian Gulf water mass in the Arabian Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2001)
The characteristics of the subsurface salinity maximum associated with the Persian Gulf Water mass (PGW) are used to quantify the spreading and mixing of PGW in the thermocline of the Arabian Sea based on a bimonthly ...
Geochemistry of surficial sediments along the central southwest coast of India - Seasonal changes in regional distribution
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2003)
The coastal sediments (129 samples) of central- southwest coast of India, in and around Cochin, the second biggest industrial city along the west coast of India, were analyzed for their textural and geochemical fractions ...
Detection of Bay of Bengal eddies from TOPEX and in situ observations
(Sears Foundation, 2000)
Oceanic eddies have warm or cold temperatures and high or low sea surface height (SSH) at the center depending upon the direction of rotation. However, since the Bay of Bengal waters are highly stratified, sea surface ...
Bio-accumulation of some trace metals in the short-neck clam Paphia malabarica from Mandovi estuary, Goa
Monthly collections of the clam Paphia malabarica were made for period of 1 year from May 2002 to April 2003 from Verem, Mandovi estuary, Goa, India. Clams were categorised into two groups, 25-35 mm (small size) and 35-40 ...

Sediment transport and depth variation study of the Gulf of Kutch using remote sensing
(Taylor and Francis, 2003)
Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM) data gathered onboard Indian Remote Sensing satellite (IRS P4), in eight VNIR bonds covering Gulf of Kutch and adjoining regions were digitally processed using an image processing system. False ...
Seasonal variability of cyclone heat potential in the Bay of Bengal
(Kluwer Academic, 2004)
Monthly maps of cyclone heat potential (CHP) in the Bay of Bengal have been prepared by using Levitus climatological data set. Seasonal variability of CHP in the Bay of Bengal has been studied using the CTD data sets ...
Seasonal shift in net ecosystem production in a tropical estuary
(American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, 2003)
Net ecosystem production was examined in the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries (southwestern India) and the adjoining coastal waters for a period of 1 yr (January to December 1998). The study period encompassed premonsoon, ...
