Monsoons are familiar elements of tropical life, bringing rain to the crops that feed millions. The effects do not stop there, in the Arabian Sea, the twice-yearly monsoon winds enrich the fishing grounds, as well as setting ...
Carbonate mineralogy and faunal relationship in tropical shallow water marine sediments: Cape Comorin, India
The carbonate mineralogy of Recent sediments from the western and eastern continental shelves around Cape Comorin off the southern tip of India was determined by X-ray diffraction analyses. The results show that in the ...
