Changing depositional environments during the Late Quatrnary along the western continental margin of India
(Indian Association of Sedimentologists, 1998)
Sedimentalogical and palaeoceanographic studies were carried out on two sediment cores collected within the Oxygen Minimum Zone (OMZ - between 150 to 1200 m water depth) along the western continental margin of India. The ...
Organic carbon in the sediments of the lower reaches of Periar River
(Indian Fisheries Association, 1992)
Sediments are indicators of the quality of water overlying them and hence, useful in the assessment of environmental pollution. Temporal and spatial variations in sediment characteristics and organic carbon content from 9 ...
Arc arrays: studies of high resolution techniques for multibeam bathymetric applications
In this paper a theoretical study is initiated to observe the utility of directional spectral estimation techniques for `arc array' geometries. We examine the suitability of a 15 degrees arc transducer geometry for multibeam ...
Longshore sediment transport model for the Indian west coast
(Coastal Research Foundation, 1992)
Longshore sediment transport rates for the Indian west coast from Cochin to Porbandar are estimated from ship observed wave data (1968 to 1986). The sediment transport rate is relatively high during the southwest monsoon ...
Tumour-like anomaly of copepods-an evaluation of the possible causes in Indian marine waters
Globally, tumour-like anomalies (TLA) in copepods and the critical assessment of their possible causes are rare. The exact causative factor and ecological consequences of TLA in copepods are still unclear and there is no ...
Residual estuarine circulation in the Mandovi, a monsoonal estuary: A three-dimensional model study
Observations in the Mandovi estuary, located on the central west coast of India, have shown that the salinity field in this estuary is remarkably time-dependent and passes through all possible states of stratification ...
Denitrification: An important pathway for nitrous oxide production in tropical mangrove sediments (Goa, India)
(American Society of Agronomy, 2010)
Net nitrous oxide production and denitrification activity were measured in two mangrove ecosystems of Goa, India. The relatively pristine site Tuvem was compared to Divar, which is prone to high nutrient input. Stratified ...
Antifouling activity of Indian marine invertebrate against the green mussel Perna viridis L.
Thirty-one species of marine invertebrates collected from the Indian Coast, belonging to six phyla (Porifera, Coelenterata, Annelida, Mollusca, Echinodermata, and Eurochordata) were tested for antifouling activity against ...
Evaluation of pressure transducers under turbid natural waters
(American Meteorological Society, 1999)
Pressure measurements made in two turbid natural waters have led to the inference that the effective depthmean in situ density values, rho sub(eff), of these waters are less than (approx equal to 0.4%-4.5%) that of the ...
Rehabilitation of coastal wetlands of India
