Organic carbon and humic acids in sediments of the Arabian Sea and factors governing their distribution
Organic carbon and humic acids in the sediments of the Arabian Sea show distinct regional variations to the south and north of 15~'N latitude. Significant variations are also observed from the shelf to the slope regions. ...
Grain size studies on the nearshore sediments of Jaigad, Ambwah and Varvada Bays, Maharashtra
(Geological Society of India, 1997)
Bivariate plots of the textural parameter data suggest overlapping environments, such as river/beach to JB, beach/dune/river to AB and dune/beach to VB sediments.
Seabottom backscatter studies in the western continental shelf of India
(Academic Press, 1999)
The study is initiated to observe the interaction effects of the sound signal with three different sediment bottoms in the shelf area between Cochin and Mangalore in the western continental shelf of India. An echo signal ...
Studies on sup(226) Ra and sup(210) Pb activities and the concentration factors of sup(226) Ra in the surface organic layers of the estuarine sediments of Mindola and Purna rivers in India
The sediment samples have been collected from estuarine regions of Mindola and Purna of Gujarat State These samples are found to contain less than 3% of organic matter which scavenge and carry most of the activity of ...
Geochemistry of zinc in the sediments of the western continental shelf and slope of India
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1985)
The bulk geochemistry of zinc in the sediments of the western continental shelf and slope of India and also the partition geochemistry of the sediments of the shelf and slope regions between Ratnagiri and Mangalore have ...
Chemical composition of marine macrophytes and their surrounding water and sediments, from Minicoy, Lakshadweep
Among the marine algae studied, Herposiphonia spp showed highest concentration of nitrogen (6.55%). In seagrasses, Cymodocea rotundata was rich in nitrogen (6.19%) and organic carbon (30.8%). In general seagrasses were ...
Diagenetic remobilization of rare earth elements in a sediment core from the central Indian Basin
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1997)
Rare earth elements (REE) distribution in a 36 cm long sediment box core from the Central Indian Basin is studied. REE concentration is generally higher in the upper oxic zone than in intermediate suboxic zone suggesting ...
Clay mineral distribution on the Kerala continental shelf and slope
(Geological Society of India, 1983)
Seventy-five sediment samples collected from the Kerala continental shelf and slope during the 17th and 71st Cruises of @iRV gaveshani@@ were analysed by X-ray diffraction for clay mineral cntent. The distribution of total ...
Gypsum crystals in the inner shelf sediments off Maharashtra, India
(Geological Society of India, 1979)
Gypsum crystals have been found in the inner shelf silty clay/clayey silt off the Maharashtra Coast between Vengurla and Bombay. Generally these occur as euhedral single or twinned crystals of selenite. Very often shells ...
Manganese in the shelf sediments off the west coast of India
(Current Science Association, 1968)
The distribution pattern of manganese in the marine sediments of the west coast of India was studied in relation to the source and environmental factors. The progressive decrease in the manganese content of the sediments ...
