Carbon dioxide emissions from Indian monsoonal estuaries
(American Geophysical Union, 2012)
Estuaries are known to be strong source for atmospheric CO sub(2), however, little information is available from Indian estuaries. In order to quantify CO sub(2) emissions from the Indian estuaries, samples were collected ...
Intensified oxygen minimum zone on the western shelf of Bay of Bengal during summer monsoon: Influence of river discharge
A study on biogeochemical cycling in the west coastal Bay of Bengal was undertaken during the peak discharge period to understand the influence of enhanced stratification and primary production on the possible intensification ...
Distribution and sources of particulate organic matter in the Indian monsoonal estuaries during monsoon
(American Geophysical Union, 2014)
The distribution and sources of particulate organic carbon (POC) and nitrogen (PN) in 27 Indian estuaries were examined during the monsoon using the content and isotopic composition of carbon and nitrogen. Higher phytoplankton ...
High CO2 emissions from the tropical Godavari estuary (India) associated with monsoon river discharges
(American Geophysical Union, 2011)
Estuaries have been under sampled to establish them as sources or sinks of the atmospheric carbon dioxide. Such poor coverage is well known for tropical, particularly monsoon driven, estuaries. In an attempt to study the ...
Spatial variations in dissolved inorganic nutrients in the groundwaters along the Indian coast and their export to adjacent coastal waters
Submarine Groundwater Discharge (SGD) is one of the main external nutrient sources to the coastal waters. The concentrations of nutrients in groundwaters are a few folds higher than that of adjacent coastal waters; therefore, ...
