Variability in wave refraction and resultant nearshore current patterns: Exposed versus sheltered beaches along north Karnataka, west coast of India
For predominant waves approaching from directions varying between SW and WNW and periods varying from 6 to 11 sec, the refraction function (Kd) shows amplification of wave heights resulting in concentration of wave energy ...
Nature of the observed oscillatory flows in shelf waters of the western continental shelf of India
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1988)
Time series data on currents obtained from three Aanderaa current meters moored at a station depth of 92 m in the waters of the western continental shelf of India during May 1984 indicated the presence of oscillatory flows. ...
Satellite-tracked drifting buoy observations in the south equatorial current in the Indian Ocean
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1988)
Three satellite-tracked drifting buoys released in the south equatorial current in the Indian Ocean followed the path of the current moving westward approximately zonally in the vicinity of 10 degrees S latitude. On nearing ...
Shipboard and laboratory equipment
(New Delhi: Department of Ocean Development, 1988)
The polymetallic nodules occur at an average depth of 4500 m. Adequate equipment and techniques are required for the exploration at such depths. Shipboard and various laboratory equipments for the sampling of polymetallic ...
Link node model for the simulation of tides in the Gironde estuary, France
Sea surface temperature mapping using a thermal infrared scanner
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1988)
The sea surface temperature (SST) determined by remote sensing technique refers to the skin temperature of the sea surface, while the SST measured by conventional method employing a bucket thermometer gives the temperature ...
Absence of terraces on a submerged carbonate bank and its implications to Holocene sea level transgression on the western continental margin of India
(Goa: National Institute of Oceanography, 1988)
Phase spectral composition of wind generated ocean surface waves
A study of the composition of the phase spectra of wind generated ocean surface waves is carried out using wave records collected employing a ship borne wave recorder. It is found that the raw phase spectral estimates could ...
Surface temperature of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and the Indian rainfall
(Current Science Association, 1988)
The time variation of the monthly mean surface temperature of the equatorial Pacific Ocean during 1982-1987 has been studied in relation to summer monsoon rainfall over India The ENSO events of 1982 and 1987 were related ...
Apparent relationship between thermal regime in Antarctic waters and Indian summer monsoon
Austral winter seasonal and intra-seasonal variabilities of Sub-Tropical Convergence and Antarctic Polar Front are examined using sea surface temperature patterns published in GOSSTCOMP (Global Operational Sea Surface ...
