  • Suneel, V.; Ciappa, A.; Vethamony, P. (Science of the Total Environment, vol.569-570; 2016; 31-39)
    Tar ball (TB) deposition along the West Coast of India (WCI) is a common phenomenon during the southwest monsoon season, particularly along the coast of Goa and Gujarat, and it is a major concern to the stake holders. Our ...
  • Johnson, G.; SanilKumar, V.; Anoop, T.R.; Joseph, J. (Ocean Engineering, vol.121; 2016; 546-558)
    The aim of the present research is to investigate the directional characteristics of waves along the southwestern Bay of Bengal based on the measured data during 2010 at 14 m water depth. Diurnal, monthly and annual variation ...
  • Suresh, T.; Joshi, Shreya; Talaulikar, M.; Desa, E.J. (Proceedings of SPIE, vol. 9878, Remote Sensing of the Oceans and Inland Waters: Techniques, Applications, and Challengeses, 98781I; 2016; 6pp doi.: 10.1117/12.2238595)
    Algorithms developed for underwater horizontal and vertical visibilities are presented. The algorithms have been developed to derive the underwater visibilities based on the contrast theory using the in-situ and Hydrolight ...
  • Suresh, T.; Talaulikar, M.; Desa, E.J.; Lotlikar, A. (Proceedings of SPIE, vol. 9878, Remote Sensing of the Oceans and Inland Waters: Techniques, Applications, and Challengeses, 98780E; 2016; 8pp doi.: 10.1117/12.2235777)
    An algorithm to determine the spectral total absorption coefficient of water is presented. The algorithm is based on the Gershun’s equation of alfa = micro K<sub>E</sub>. The spectral underwater average cosine, micro and ...
  • Nair, M.A.; SanilKumar, V. (Natural Hazards, vol.82(3); 2016; 1565-1588)
    Wave spectra of the measured data at 13 m water depth off Ratnagiri using the Datawell Directional waverider buoy from March 2010 to November 2014 are used to study the daily, monthly, seasonal and annual variations in the ...
  • Pai, D.S.; Sridhar, L.; RameshKumar, M.R. (Climate Dynamics, vol.46(11); 2016; 3921-3939)
    The study lists active and break monsoon events over India over a very long period (1901-2014) identified using criteria based on a rainfall index derived over a critical high rainfall region called core monsoon zone. The ...
  • Deepa, N.; Kunte, P.D. (International Journal of Advanced Remote Sensing and GIS, vol.5(5); 2016; 1726-1746)
    The changes in shoreline positions and geomorphic features along the Karnataka, West coast of India, were studied for the period from 1973 to 2014, using multi-dated satellite images and topographic maps. The ten hotspots ...
  • Anil, N.; RameshKumar, M.R.; Sajeev, R.; Saji, P.K. (Natural Hazards, vol.82(2); 2016; 1317-1326)
    The summer monsoon contributes to about 75 % of mean annual rainfall over the various meteorological subdivisions of India. The role of ocean–atmosphere phenomena such as Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) and El Nino-Southern ...
  • Patra, S.K.; Mishra, P.; Mohanty, P.K.; Pradhan, U.K.; Panda, U.S.; RamanaMurthy, M.V.; SanilKumar, V.; Nair, T.M.B. (Natural Hazards, vol.82(2); 2016; 1051-1073)
    Long-term wave data play a crucial role in arriving the wave criteria for ports and harbors and shore protection structures. Seasonal and annual wave characteristics are studied based on wave data collected for the year ...
  • Amrutha, M.M.; SanilKumar, V.; Sandhya, K.G.; Nair, T.M.B.; Rathod, J.L. (Ocean Engineering, vol.119; 2016; 114-124)
    Waves in the nearshore waters (~15 m water-depth) of eastern Arabian Sea were simulated using SWAN nested in WAVEWATCH III (WW3) for the year 2014. The sensitivity of the numerical wave model WW3 towards different source ...
