Relict benthic foraminifera in surface sediments off central east coast of India as indicator of sea level changes
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2007)
An attempt has been made to reconstruct sea level variations along the central east coast of India during the late Pleistocene and early Holocene. A total of 39 surface sediment samples collected from water depth range of ...
Revealing monsoonal variability of the last 2,500 years over India using sedimentological and foraminiferal proxies
A 2-m-long, shallow-water sediment core, representing the last 2,500 years, collected from the tropical Arabian Sea from the inner shelf (22 m water depth) off Karwar (Karnataka, India) near the mouth of the Kali River, ...
The reciprocity between coiling direction and dimorphic reproduction in benthic foraminifera
(The Geological Society Publishing House, 1992)
There are various opinions as to what parameter influences the coiling directions in foraminifera. "Do microspheric and megalospheric generations have different coiling ratios?" is an unanswered question in foraminiferal ...
Preface to: Marine micropaleontological studies from the northern Indian Ocean
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2007)
Indian Ocean is unique, being land-locked towards the northern margin, and experiences, highest reported oceanic productivity. It is also the locale for the most severe oxygen depleted waters in the coastal and intermediate ...

An insight into subterranean flow proposition around Alleppey mudbank coastal sector, Kerala, India: Inferences from the subsurface profiles of ground penetrating radar
The mudbank formation along south-western Indian coast has been a scintillating phenomenon during monsoon season, and the source of mud is a debatable issue till now. In the midst of many hypotheses, the subterranean passage ...
Timing, cause and consequences of mid-Holocene climate transition in the Arabian Sea
We reconstruct centennial scale quantitative changes in surface seawater temperature (SST), evaporation-precipitation (from Mg/Ca and delta18O of surface dwelling planktic foraminifera), productivity (from relative abundance ...
Significance of correspondence between river discharge and proloculus size of benthic foraminifera in paleomonsoonal studies
Variations in the mean proloculus size (MPS) of the benthic foraminiferal species Rotalidium annectens were studied in a core collected off Karwar (20 m water depth), on the west coast of India. Comparison of downcore ...
Foraminiferal evidences for 77-year cycles of droughts in India and its possible modulation by the gleissberg solar cycle
(Coastal Research Foundation, 1995)
A 1.15 m long core collected from 20 m water depth off Karwar on the western continental shelf of India was studied to reconstruct the paleomonsoonal, precipitational history during the recent past with fine time resolution ...
