Monitoring effects of simulated disturbance at INDEX site: Current status and future activities
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2003)
During the Indian Deep-Sea Environment Experiment (INDEX), greater than 6000 cu.m of sediment was resuspended 5 m above seafloor. Data collected from deep-towed photography, sediment traps, sediment coring and CTD operations ...
Impacts on surface productivity during sediment dispersal experiment in Central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
It is anticipated that in the case of mining of marine minerals, sea floor sediments will be brought up along with the mineral ores and discharged on the surface. These nutrient rich sediments would create a set of different ...
Microscale response of sediment variables to benthic disturbance in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2000)
The response of sediment bacteria and biochemical variables to benthic disturbance was investigated in the Central Indian Ocean Basin from cores at nine stations. Generally, bacterial density and biochemical variables ...
Microbial biomass and organic nutrients in the deep-sea sediments of the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2001)
In order to assess the impact of deep-sea mining on the in situ benthic life, the microbial standing stock and concentration of organic nutrients in the deep-sea sediments of the Central Indian Ocean Basin in the Indian ...
