Microplastic pollution: A serious threat to the marine ecosystem
(Indian Coast Guard, 2017)
Climatology and variability of wind speeds along the southwest coast of India derived from Climate Forecast System Reanalysis winds
Wind climate along the southwest coast of India (Kerala coast) has been analysed using 41 years of Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) winds to delineate long-term trends and variability.The study reveals significant ...
Modification of wind-wave model WAM and its verification against buoy data in the Indian Ocean
(IIT Bombay, 2012)
An attempt is made to improve the accuracy of wave prediction in the Indian Ocean. For this purpose, two versions of the wave model WAM have been used: WAM (Cycle 4) and the new version of WAM, called NewWAM. The three ...
Long-Term Variability of the Wind Field over the Indian Ocean Based on ERA-Interim Reanalysis
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
A detailed study of long-term variability of winds using 30 years of data from the European Centre for Medium-range Weather Forecasts global reanalysis (ERA-Interim) over the Indian Ocean has been carried out by partitioning ...
Wave-current interaction during Hudhud cyclone in the Bay of Bengal
(Copernicus Publications for EGU, 2017)
The present work describes the interaction between waves and currents utilizing a coupled ADCIRC+SWAN model for the very severe cyclonic storm�Hudhud,�which�made landfall at Visakhapatnam on�the east coast of India in ...
Numerical simulations of barnacle larval dispersion coupled with field observations on larval abundance, settlement and recruitment in a tropical monsoon influenced coastal marine environment
Observations were carried out to monitor the larval abundance, settlement and recruitment of barnacles on a regular basis for a period of two years. The results were then compared with the numerical modelling studies carried ...
