Operational forecast of oil spill trajectory and assessment of impacts on intertidal macrobenthos in the Dahanu region, west coast of India
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2013)
A two-dimensional model has been developed and applied to the hypothetical spills of crude oil in the Dahanu area on the west coast of India. An attempt has also been made to quantify the intertidal macrobenthic biomass ...
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 ...
Particulate trace metals in Cochin backwaters: Distribution of seasonal indices
A seasonal analysis of particulate trace metals, viz. iron, manganese, zinc, copper, cobalt and nickel collected from 4 stations in Cochin backwaters are presented. The spatial trend for cobalt, iron and nickel was stationary ...
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 ...
Ecology of hydromedusae from Bombay Harbour - Thana and Bassein Creek estuarine complex
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1997)
Species composition, abundance, seasonal variation and distribution of Hydromedusae were carried out during October 1985 to September 1986. Thirty four species belonging to twenty two genera were recorded from this region. ...
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 ...
Signatures of rare-earth elements in banded corals of Kalpeni atoll-Lakshadweep archipelago in response to monsoonal variations
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1996)
Concentrations of rare-earth elements (REE) have been determined in seasonal bands of Porites species collected from the Lakshadweep lagoon. Total REE (REE) are very low (less than 3 ppm) in these corals. Seasonal variations ...
