Biogeochemistry of methane in a tropical monsoonal estuarine system along the west coast of India
Estuaries are known to be important sources of methane (CH4) to the atmosphere. However, a lack of adequate field studies in understanding the sources/sinks of CH4 in estuaries hampers the global atmospheric budgeting. ...
Benthic fluxes of methane along the salinity gradient of a tropical monsoonal estuary: Implications for CH4 supersaturation and emission
Observations in the Mandovi estuary, a typical tropical monsoonal estuary located on the west coast of India, revealed that waters were perennially supersaturated with CH4, indicating that the estuary could be a significant ...
Influence of upwelling induced near shore hypoxia on the Alappuzha mud banks, South West Coast of India
The results of the first time-series measurements spanning 18-weeks (22 April to 20 September 2014) from a coastal environment (Alappuzha, southwest India), where two process of upwelling and mud banks are concurrent during ...
Sedimentary sulphate reduction and organic matter mineralization across salinity gradient of the Mandovi Estuary, West coast of India
The Mandovi Estuary, located along the tropical west coast of India, transforms from being a freshwater-dominated body during the monsoon season to a tide-dominated system during post-monsoon season, with a salinity gradient ...
Anaerobic carbon mineralisation through sulphate reduction in the inner shelf sediments of eastern Arabian sea
Monsoon-induced coastal upwelling, land run-off, benthic and atmospheric inputs make the western Indian shelf waters biologically productive that is expected to lead to high rates of mineralisation of organic matter (OM) ...
