Regeneration and abnormality in benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei: Implications in reconstructing past salinity changes
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 2011)
A laboratory culture experiment has been conducted to assess the response of marginal marine benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei to salinity and associated pH changes. Live specimens of Rosalina leei were subjected to a range ...
Hydrographic changes in the Agulhas Recirculation Region during the late Quaternary.
(European Geosciences Union, 2014)
The strength of Southern Hemisphere westerlies, as well as the positions of the subtropical front (STF), Agulhas Current (AC) and Agulhas Return Current (ARC) control the hydrography of the southwestern Indian Ocean. ...
Need of paleoclimatic reconstructions to understand natural and anthropogenic climatic hazards
(National Institute of Oceanography, India, 2008)
To formulate the future plans for guarding against the furies of the nature, either due to natural or anthropogenic climatic disasters, understanding of paleoclimatic fluctuations, particularly of the Holocene is of immense ...
Plastic pellets on the Caranzalem beach sands, Goa, India
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1982)
Postmonsoonal survey of Caranzalem beach, Goa, India indicated the presence of plastic pellets. These pellets varied in shape, size and number, and are considered to be contaminants of marine environment
Foramgeographical affinities of the west and east coasts of India: An approach through cluster analysis and comparison of taxonomical, environmental and ecological parameters of Recent foraminiferal thanatotopes
(ONGC, India, 2000)
Q-Mode cluster analysis of one hundred sixty species of Recent foraminifera from twenty nine Recent littoral-thanatotopes from 4000 km long coastal-stretch of India reveals that its west and east coasts belong to two ...
Distributional pattern of benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups in the shelf region off Mangalore: Environmental implications
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
The foraminiferal population in 45 surface sediment samples (20-86 m water depth) off Mangalore, Karnataka, India, was divided into benthic and planktonic assemblages. Within the benthic community based on the external ...
Effect of salinity induced pH/alkalinity changes on benthic foraminifera: A laboratory culture experiment
The salinity of coastal waters in the vicinity of seasonally fresh water fed estuaries changes tremendously and reportedly affects the living calcite secreting organisms like foraminifera, as well as their dead remains. ...
Does mining pollution affect foraminiferal distribution in Mandovi estuary, Goa, India?
(Museum d'histoire naturelle de Geneve, 2002)
A total of 10 surface sediment samples were collected in the premonsoon season in 1990 from the Mandovi estuary, Goa, India. Study revealed presence of 14 species of foraminifera. The foraminiferal data is of special ...
Microenvironments and anomalous benthic foraminiferal distribution within the neritic regime of the Dabhol-Vengurla sector (Arabian Sea)
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 1980)
An anomalous distribution of benthic Foraminifera within the neritic regime at a few stations indicates the existence of microenvironments. The vertical distribution is marked by the restricted occurrence of @iCibicides@@ ...
Can benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups be used as indicators of paleomonsoonal precipitation?
(Academic Press, 1992)
A technique is proposed for the quick and easy assessment of paleomonsoonal precipitation through the study of morphological groups of foraminifera in a shallow water (20 m water depth) sediment core collected off Karwar, ...
