Coastal versus open-ocean denitrification in the Arabian Sea
(The European Geosciences Union, 2006)
The Arabian Sea contains one of the three major open-ocean denitrification zones in the world. In addition, pelagic denitrification also occurs over the inner and mid-shelf off the west coast of India. The major differences ...
Benthic fluxes in a tropical estuary and their role in the ecosystem
In-situ measurements of benthic fluxes of oxygen and nutrients were made in the subtidal region of the Mandovi estuary during premonsoon and monsoon seasons to understand the role of sediment-water exchange processes in ...
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 ...
Spatial variation of phytoplankton pigments along the southwest coast of India
Phytoplankton composition and abundance were studied along the southwestern Indian coast toward the end of the upwelling season in October 2004. Phytoplankton pigment analyses, complemented by limited microscopic counts, ...
