Geochemical evidence of terrigenous influence in deep-sea sediments upto 8�S in the Central Indian basin
Thirty-two representative deep-sea sediment samples have been studied from three manganese nodule-bearing environments in the Central Indian Basin: diatomaceous-radiolarian ooze-clay, pelagic brown clay and calcareous ooze. ...
Origin and significance of high-grade phosphorite in a sediment core from the continental slope off Goa, India
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1995)
A phosphorite crust was found at 380-390 cm depth interval of a sediment core collected from the topographic high occurring on the continental slope off Goa. This crust is fragile and grey to light brown in colour. Carbonate ...
Clay minerals as palaeomonsoon proxies: Evaluation and relevance to the late Quaternary records from SE Arabian Sea
(NCAOR, Goa, 2005)
Palaeoclimatic studies are largely dependent on the quality of records and a prudent use of environmental proxy indicators. In this study, the factors affecting the detrital clay minerals in marine environment and their ...
Controls on organic carbon distribution in sediments from the eastern Arabian Sea margin
Sediment cores from the upper continental slope of the eastern Arabian Sea have high organic carbon (OC), CaCO sub(3), and sand content at the top. The values decrease with increasing depth in the Holocene and Upper ...
