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. ...
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. ...
Sea level flactuations during last 15000 years and their impact on human settlements
(Hyderabad: Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), 2012)
Benthic ecological mapping of the Ayeyarwady delta shelf off Myanmar, using foraminiferal assemblages
(The Palaeontological Society of India, 2014)
Information on benthic ecologies is a prerequisite to evaluate marine resources, their management and monitoring the impact arising from their exploitation. In the present study, benthic foraminiferal distributions from ...
Assessing the effect of calcein incorporation on physiological processes of benthic foraminifera
Rosalina sp. was incubated in seawater spiked with calcein (5 mg/l to 20 mg/l calcein), a dye proposed as efficient marker to tag newly formed calcite, to understand its effect on benthic foraminifera. The experiment was ...
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 ...
Ancient Indians (Harappan settlement) were aware of tsunami/storm protection measures: A new interpretation of thick walls at Dholavira, Gujarat, India
(Current Science Association, 2016)
Dholavira, an archaeological site of Harappan times in Gujarat, had ‘city fortification’ as a unique aspect of its town planning. The thickness of the main city wall is alarming3, 9, 10. The probable cause of such massive ...
Deterioration of Early Holocene coral reef due to sea level rise along west coast of India: Benthic foraminiferal testimony
(China University of Geosciences (Beijing), 2012)
A total of 103 surface sediment samples collected from the water depth range of 15-3300 m along Vijaydurg-Karwar stretch of central west coast of India were analyzed for foraminiferal content. Relict benthic foraminiferal ...
Experiment to decipher the effect of heavy metal cadmium on coastal benthic foraminifer Pararotalia Nipponica (Asano)
(Palaeontological Society of India, 2013)
The response of benthic foraminifer Pararotalia nipponica to heavy metal cadmium is observed in laboratory experiment. The results indicate that under a given set of conditions, heavy metal cadmium is deleterious to benthic ...
