Monsoon driven changes in phytoplankton populations in the eastern Arabian Sea as revealed by microscopy and HPLC pigment analysis
Like the rest of the Arabian Sea, the west coast of India is subject to semi-annual wind reversals associated with the monsoon cycle that result in two periods of elevated phytoplankton productivity, one during the northeast ...
Sediment texture, distribution and transport on the Ayeyarwady continental shelf, Andaman Sea
The Ayeyarwady continental shelf is a complex sedimentary system characterized by large sediment influx (N360 million ton/yr), a wide shelf (N170 km), a strong tidal regime (7 m maximum tidal range), and incised by the ...
High new production in the Bay of Bengal: Possible causes and implications
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
The first measurements of new production (sup(15) N tracer technique), the component of primary production that sustains on extraneous nutrient inputs to the euphotic zone, in the Bay of Bengal is reported. Experiments ...
Vertical distribution of mesozooplankton in the central and eastern Arabian Sea during the winter monsoons
(Cambridge University Press, 1998)
The vertical distribution of mesozooplankton in the central and eastern Arabian Sea was investigated during the winter monsoon in 1995. Samples were analysed from discrete depth zones defined according to oxygen and ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...
Biodeterioration of wood in estuarine ecosystem of Goa
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
An assessment of macrofouling and wood boring community at different localities of Zuari and Mandovi estuaries of Goa carried out. Wood panels of Mangifera indica of 10 x 15 x 2.5 cm size were exposed in this investigation. ...
Postglacial Indian Ocean
Hydrography and circulation in the western Bay of Bengal during the northeast monsoon
(American Geophysical Union, 1996)
The Bay of Bengal, a semienclosed tropical basin that comes under the influence of monsoonal wind and freshwater influx, is distinguished by a strongly stratified surface layer and a seasonally reversing circulation. We ...
Indian monsoon variability at different time scales: Marine and terrestrial proxy records
(Indian National Science Academy, 2012)
Here, we present a review of the work done in India during 2007-2011 on various proxy records of monsoon variability preserved in the marine (Central Indian Basin, western, northern and eastern Arabian Sea and the Bay of ...
On the role of surface heat budget parameters over the tropical Indian Ocean in relation to the summer monsoon
(IAPSO Commission for Vickbura Oceanogr. Co-Operation in Dev. Countries, 1996)
This study presents the role of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, cloud motion vector winds in the Equatorial Indian Ocean, and the cold fronts in the South Africa-Malagassy region on the ...
