Influence of atmospheric dry deposition of inorganic nutrients on phytoplankton biomass in the coastal Bay of Bengal
The aerosols from continents contain relatively higher amounts of inorganic nutrients than those of marine origin and can make a notable contribution to the coastal biological productivity. To test this hypothesis, the ...
Spatial and temporal variability in concentration and characteristics of aerosols at Visakhapatnam (east) and Goa (west) coasts of India
Knowledge on the variability in quantity and compositions of various size groups of aerosols is important to understand their sources and their role in biogeochemical and climate processes. Here, we studied total suspended ...
Acidification of the coastal Bay of Bengal by aerosols deposition
Polluted aerosol transport from South Asia containing oxides of nitrogen and sulphur and their deposition on surface may acidify coastal waters. To test this hypothesis, we have conducted experiments involving (a) variability ...
