Monitoring effects of simulated disturbance at INDEX site: Current status and future activities
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2003)
During the Indian Deep-Sea Environment Experiment (INDEX), greater than 6000 cu.m of sediment was resuspended 5 m above seafloor. Data collected from deep-towed photography, sediment traps, sediment coring and CTD operations ...
Impacts on surface productivity during sediment dispersal experiment in Central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
It is anticipated that in the case of mining of marine minerals, sea floor sediments will be brought up along with the mineral ores and discharged on the surface. These nutrient rich sediments would create a set of different ...
Bacterial response to contrasting geochemistry in the sediments of central Indian Ocean basin
(Regional Research laboratory, Bhubaneswar, 2005)
The latitudinal differences in geochemical and physiographic nature could evoke varied biological/microbiological response in the deep-sea benthic ecosystem of the Central Indian Ocean. Sediment cores have been examined ...
Mixed response in bacterial and biochemical variables to simulated sand mining in placer-rich beach sediments, Ratnagiri, West coast of India
The influence of mechanical disturbance of sediment-akin to small scale mining on bacterial community and biochemical variables was investigated at Kalbadevi beach, Ratnagiri, a placer-rich beach ecosystem which is a ...
