(Scientific Reports, vol.6; 2016; no. 29838 doi: 10.1038/srep29838)
    The South Asian Monson (SAM) is one of the most intense climatic elements yet its initiation and variations are not well established. Dating the deposits of SAM wind-driven currents in IODP cores from the Maldives yields ...
  • 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 ...
