Trace metal levels in nearshore sediments close to industrial discharges off Cuddalore (Bay of Bengal)
(ASTM International, 2003)
Trace metals in the sediment and in the overlying water column along with texture characteristics in the vicinity of industrial discharges at Cuddallore were analyzed, covering the seasonal changes to identify probable ...

(BUET, Bangladesh, 2003)
River Mandovi and Zuari, Goa (west coast of India) are flowing through iron and manganese mining areas and are heavily used for iron and manganese ore transport. This region generates 25-30 million tons of mining rejects ...
Biogeochemistry of the surficial sediments of the western and eastern continental shelves of India
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2008)
Even though continental margins cover only about 7-9 % of the world ocean area, they are important sites for organic carbon accumulation and hence play a major role in biogeochemical carbon cycling. Surface sediments from ...
