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 ...
Biodiversity of benthic polychaetes from the coastal waters of Paradip, Bay of Bengal
Polychaete communities of the subtidal waters off Paradip, Orissa, India (Lat, 20 degrees 05 minutes - 20 degrees 20 minutes N and Long. 86 degrees 35 minutes - 86 degrees 60 minutes E) in the Bay of Bengal were studied ...
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 ...
Organic enrichment and benthic fauna–Some ecological consideration.
In the present study, synoptic data on the structure of macroinfauna and total organic content of sediment collected from different sources were analyzed to look for patterns of association consistent with conceptual model ...
Monitoring the sedimentary carbon in an artificially disturbed deep-sea sedimentary environment
An area of 0.6 km sup(2) in the manganese nodule field of the Central Indian Basin was physically disturbed and sediments discharged in the near bottom waters to simulate seabed mining and study its impact on benthic ...
