Zooplankton characteristics of the coastal ecosystem off Bombay, India
(Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, 1998)
The nearshore waters of Bombay sustain a rich and diverse zooplankton fauna. Continuous observations for a period of 15 months indicated a variation from 0.4 to 19.9 mg C.m sup(3) (av. 4.3 mg C.m sup(-3)) in zooplankton ...
Grain size studies on the nearshore sediments of Jaigad, Ambwah and Varvada Bays, Maharashtra
(Geological Society of India, 1997)
Bivariate plots of the textural parameter data suggest overlapping environments, such as river/beach to JB, beach/dune/river to AB and dune/beach to VB sediments.
A 25 ky BP record of Himalayan aridity using muscovite and clays as proxy climate indicators
(Museo Geologico di Bologna, 1999)
Based upon the temporal variations in the grain size parameters, characteristic clay minerals, their ratios and detrital muscovite content in a isotopically dated turbidity free core from hemipelagic environment. (2713 m ...
Influence of sedimentation on enrichment of manganese and growth of ferromanganese micronodules, Bengal Fan, India
Based upon down core variations in O/Mn ratio in sediment and in micronodules, Mn content, organic carbon and abundance of micronodules in two box cores from high and low sedimentation regions of the Bay of Bengal, 0-20 ...

Estimation of directional wave spreading
(NIO, Goa, 1991)
Directional properties of ocean waves are of great economic interest. The knowledge of wave directionality is important for the design of maritime structures and offshore operations. Two main aspects are considered for ...
Aspects of productivity of mangroves
(M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, Madras, India, 1994)
The term 'mangroves' refers to an assemblage of different flowering plants which can grow in saline brackish water areas like creeks, backwaters, estuaries and deltas. Mangrove forest cover in the tropical area is about ...
Design improvements in box dredges to enhance the collection of manganese nodules
(Offshore Technology Conference, 1991)
Design of three box dredges along with the technique and modifications effected to anable bulk sampling of manganese nodules is presented. Incorporation of a sled, angled cutting edges, retention plates and increased size ...
