Bolivina skagerrakensis, a new name for Bolivina cf. B. robusta with notes on its ecology and distribution
(Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research, 1985)
Regeneration and abnormality in benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei: Implications in reconstructing past salinity changes
(Universita' degli Studi di Milano, 2011)
A laboratory culture experiment has been conducted to assess the response of marginal marine benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei to salinity and associated pH changes. Live specimens of Rosalina leei were subjected to a range ...
Hydrographic changes in the Agulhas Recirculation Region during the late Quaternary.
(European Geosciences Union, 2014)
The strength of Southern Hemisphere westerlies, as well as the positions of the subtropical front (STF), Agulhas Current (AC) and Agulhas Return Current (ARC) control the hydrography of the southwestern Indian Ocean. ...
Intertidal foraminifera from Miramar-Caranzalem Shoreline, Goa
Quantitative analysis of foraminifera (entire and broken) revealed that Rotalina, composed of 29 species, constituted 95.18% while Miliolina, composed of 11 species, and Textulariina, with 5 species were poorly represented. ...
Need of paleoclimatic reconstructions to understand natural and anthropogenic climatic hazards
(National Institute of Oceanography, India, 2008)
To formulate the future plans for guarding against the furies of the nature, either due to natural or anthropogenic climatic disasters, understanding of paleoclimatic fluctuations, particularly of the Holocene is of immense ...
Paleogene reworked foraminifera in Recent sediments off Daman, Western India
The first record of reworked foraminiferal species in the Recent sediments off the coast of Daman is reported. Among others, @iQuadrimorphina advena, Uvigerina minuta, Gyroidinoides soldani, Bulimina aguafrescanensis@@ and ...
Plastic pellets on the Caranzalem beach sands, Goa, India
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1982)
Postmonsoonal survey of Caranzalem beach, Goa, India indicated the presence of plastic pellets. These pellets varied in shape, size and number, and are considered to be contaminants of marine environment
Foramgeographical affinities of the west and east coasts of India: An approach through cluster analysis and comparison of taxonomical, environmental and ecological parameters of Recent foraminiferal thanatotopes
(ONGC, India, 2000)
Q-Mode cluster analysis of one hundred sixty species of Recent foraminifera from twenty nine Recent littoral-thanatotopes from 4000 km long coastal-stretch of India reveals that its west and east coasts belong to two ...
Distributional pattern of benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups in the shelf region off Mangalore: Environmental implications
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
The foraminiferal population in 45 surface sediment samples (20-86 m water depth) off Mangalore, Karnataka, India, was divided into benthic and planktonic assemblages. Within the benthic community based on the external ...
Effect of salinity induced pH/alkalinity changes on benthic foraminifera: A laboratory culture experiment
The salinity of coastal waters in the vicinity of seasonally fresh water fed estuaries changes tremendously and reportedly affects the living calcite secreting organisms like foraminifera, as well as their dead remains. ...
