    • A reduction in marine primary productivity driven by rapid warming over the tropical Indian Ocean 

      Roxy, M.K.; Modi, A.; Murtugudde, R.; Valsala, V.; Panickal, S.; PrasannaKumar, S.; Ravichandran, M.; Vichi, M.; Levy, M. (American Geophysical Union, 2016)
      Among the tropical oceans, the western Indian Ocean hosts one of the largest concentrations of marine phytoplankton blooms in summer. Interestingly, this is also the region with the largest warming trend in sea surface ...
    • Dominant Biological Control Over Upwelling on pCO2 in Sea East of Sri Lanka 

      Chakraborty, K.; Valsala, V.; Gupta, G.V.M.; Sarma, V.V.S.S. (John Wiley & Sons, 2018)
      Upwelling enhances pCO2 levels due to injection of carbon-rich water to the surface despite the removal of carbon due to increase in primary production supported by enhanced nutrients. It is hypothesized that in the Bay ...
    • Sea–air CO2 fluxes in the Indian Ocean between 1990 and 2009 

      Sarma, V.V.S.S.; Lenton, A.; Law, R.M.; Metzl, N.; Patra, P.K.; Doney, S.C.; Lima, I.D.; Dlugokencky, E.; Ramonet, M.; Valsala, V. (European Geosciences Union, 2013)
      The Indian Ocean (44° S–30° N) plays an important role in the global carbon cycle, yet it remains one of the most poorly sampled ocean regions. Several approaches have been used to estimate net sea–air CO<sub>2</sub> fluxes ...
