Lack of denitrification causes a difference in benthic foraminifera living in the oxygen deficient zones of the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea
(Elsevier Ltd, 2020)
Despite being located at the same latitudes, the Bay of Bengal oxygen deficient zone (ODZ) is markedly different than the Arabian Sea ODZ. The uptake of oxygen in the Bay of Bengal does not lead to denitrification as in ...
Effect of temperature and salinity on stable isotopic composition of shallow water benthic foraminifera: A laboratory culture study
(Bengaluru: Geological Society of India, 2013)
Quantitative estimation of past climatic parameters from stable isotopic composition of foraminifera relies on estimating the precise relationship between stable isotopic composition of the species analyzed and the ...
Indian monsoon variability in the last 2000 years as inferred from benthic foraminifera
The effect of ambient conditions on living (Rose-Bengal stained) benthic foraminifera has been studied from the shelf and slope of the central-western Bay of Bengal to assess the applicability of temporal changes in benthic ...
Dwarf foraminifera off Kerala, India: A response to mudbank formation
(Palaeontological Society of India, India, 2018)
During the monsoon season, a mudbank forms off Alleppey, a coastal district in Kerala. The mudbank forms in the littoral waters within 15 m water depth. It is a small coastal zone with water being unaffected by monsoon ...
Cluster analysis of benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups from the western margin of India reflects its depth preference
Q-mode and R-mode cluster analyses have been carried out on the census counts data of 68 genera and one �other genera� of benthic foraminifera from 32 stations off Mangalore-Cochin sector, west coast of India, to study the ...
Assessing the ecological preferences of agglutinated benthic foraminiferal morphogroups from the western Bay of Bengal
Agglutinated benthic foraminiferal morphogroups have often been used as a proxy in paleoecological studies. The response of various agglutinated morphogroups may, however, vary regionally. Here we report the ecological ...
