Nitrogen fixation rates in the eastern Arabian Sea
The Arabian Sea experiences bloom of the diazotroph Trichodesmium during certain times of the year when optimal sea surface temperature and oligotrophic condition favour their growth. We measured nitrogen fixation rates ...
Seasonal anoxia over the western Indian continental shelf
(American Geophysical Union, 2009)
The eastern Arabian Sea contains the only eastern-boundary-type upwelling environment in the entire Indian Ocean, albeit on a seasonal basis. During the southwest monsoon, when the surface current flows equatorward, upwelling ...
Sedimentary sulphate reduction and organic matter mineralization across salinity gradient of the Mandovi Estuary, West coast of India
The Mandovi Estuary, located along the tropical west coast of India, transforms from being a freshwater-dominated body during the monsoon season to a tide-dominated system during post-monsoon season, with a salinity gradient ...
Methane dynamics in the shelf waters of the West coast of India during seasonal anoxia
The Western Continental Shelf of India experiences water-column anoxia during late summer/early autumn, thereby providing conducive conditions for methane (CH4) accumulation. Measurements of CH4 along with other ancillary ...
Benthic mineralization and nutrient exchange over the inner continental shelf of western India.
(European Geosciences Union, 2014)
The western Indian continental shelf is one of the most productive coastal systems of the world ocean. This system experiences extreme changes in its oxygen regime, being normoxic from November to May and suboxic ...
Dissolved methane in Indian freshwater reservoirs
Emission of methane (CH4), a potent greenhouse gas, from tropical reservoirs is of interest because such reservoirs experience conducive conditions for CH4 production through anaerobic microbial activities. It has been ...
