Release of significant fraction of primary production as dissolved organic carbon in the Bay of Bengal
(Elsevier Ltd, 2021)
Despite nutrients supply through river discharge, atmospheric deposition and eddy-driven mixing, low primary production in the Bay of Bengal (BoB) is attributed to light limitation and non-availability of nutrients during ...
Role of eddies on controlling total and size-fractionated primary production in the Bay of Bengal
(Elsevier BV, 2020)
In order to examine the role of eddies on total and size-fractionated primary production, two cyclonic (CE), one anticyclonic (ACE) and no-eddy (NE) regions were sampled in the BoB during pre-summer monsoon (June 2019). ...
Severe phosphate limitation on nitrogen fixation in the Bay of Bengal
(Elsevier BV, 2020)
Several anticyclonic (ACE) and cyclonic (CE) eddies constitute the circulation in the Bay of Bengal (BoB) and are associated with the downwelling and upwelling processes leading to oligotrophic and eutrophic conditions ...
Phosphate removal through adsorption on suspended matter in the Bay of Bengal: Possible implications to primary production
Low primary production in the Bay of Bengal (BoB) could not be explained as this region receives nutrients from atmospheric deposition, rivers, eddies, and mixing due to depression/cyclones. In addition to nutrients, BoB ...
Accumulation of dissolved organic carbon and nitrogen in the photic zone in the nitrogen-depleted waters of the Bay of Bengal
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) accumulates in the upper ocean for several days to years and supports both autotrophic and heterotrophic activities. To examine the source of DOM and its role in plankton metabolic processes, ...
Nitrogen fixation in the western coastal Bay of Bengal: Controlling factors and contribution to primary production
N2 fixation rates were measured at 18 stations in the western coastal Bay of Bengal (BoB) to evaluate its contribution to the external source of nitrogen and its controlling factors. During the study period (fall monsoon), ...
