Macrobenthic communities of the coastal waters of Dabhol, west coast of India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 2002)
Macrobenthic community of a shallow subtidal (5-20 m) muddy deposit off Dabhol was investigated. Sediment comprised mainly of silt and clay with less of sand. Dominance of clayey-silt fraction reflects on active flocculation ...
Bacterial standing stock, meiofauna and sediment-nutrient characteristics: Indicators of benthic disturbance in the Central Indian Basin
As a part of the environmental impact assessment studies for polymetallic nodule mining, the effect of simulated "benthic disturbance" caused by a benthic hydraulic disturber was studied in the Central Indian Basin (CIB). ...
Response of deep-sea macrobenthos to a small-scale environmental disturbance
To assess the possible effect of nodule mining on deep-sea environment, the Indian deep-sea environment experiment (INDEX) was undertaken in the Indian Basin. The present investigation is a part of the disturbance and ...
Response of meiofauna to immediate benthic disturbance in the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2000)
Twenty-four stations (12 each, during pre- and postdisturbance studies) 5300 to 5330 m deep between 10 degrees 01 and 10 degrees 03'S latitude and between 75 degrees 59' and 76 degrees 02'E longitude were sampled to study ...
