Foraminifera [Marine Microfossil] as an additional tool for archaeologists - Examples from the Arabian Sea
(Society for Marine Archaeology, NIO, 2006)
During the past few decades, microfossils, especially foraminifers have become the prime source to address paleo-environmental issues. These microfossils also find application in marine archaeological studies. Foraminifers ...
Holocene sea level fluctuations on western Indian continental margin: An update
(Geological Society of India, 1995)
A new Holocene curve is generated for the western Indian continental margin. While constructing this curve careful selection of the dates were made by giving due considerations to the genetic characteristics of the dated ...
Potentiality of foraminifera in deciphering paleo-sea levels
(Omega Scientific Publishers, New Delhi, India, 1996)
Recently, the quest for paleo-sea levels during the Holocene became intense because of their use in developing accurate predictive models in connection with the accelerated sea level rise associated with the greenhouse ...
Late Holocene changes in hypoxia off the west coast of India: Micropalaeontological evidences
(Current Science Association, 2009)
A study has been carried out to understand benthic foraminiferal and sedimentary organic matter characteristics under low dissolved oxygen conditions off the central west coast of India. Based on the strong correlation ...
Foraminifera and changing pattern of monsoon rainfall
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1993)
The palaeomonsoonal history can be reconstructed utilizing climatically sensitive properties of marine microorganisms; foraminifera. The results show a major boundary at 3500 years B.P. and periods of rather low precipitation ...
Cyclicity in the Late Holocene monsoonal changes from the western Bay of Bengal: Foraminiferal approach.
(The Palaeontological Society of India, 2009)
Benthic foraminiferal characteristics, including abundance of total benthic foraminifera, angular asymmetrical benthic foraminifera, Uvigerina sp. and Bulimina marginata, have been studied in a piston core (exihibiting ...
Effect of oxygen manipulations on benthic foraminifera: A preliminary experiment
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2006)
Three sediment cores were collected at 50 m water depth on the west coast of India, off Ratnagiri, and were subjected to oxygen manipulations maintaining natural temperature and salinity. The objective was to understand ...
पुरा पर्यावरणीय समंस्याओं के समाधान में फ़ोरामिनिफ़ेरा की उपयोगिता
(Ministry of Earth Sciences; New Delhi, 2009)
Sea level fluctuations: Inferences from religious and archaeological records and their oceanographic evidences
(Society for Marine Archaeology, India, 1990)
Sediment traps as a new tool for estimation of longevity of planktonic foraminifera
(NCAOR, Goa, 2005)
Sediment trap technique provides time series data of sinking particles (faunal and sediment) from surface to bottom of the sea. Besides many other applications, data can also be used to estimate life span of planktonic ...
