Spatial and temporal variability in concentration and characteristics of aerosols at Visakhapatnam (east) and Goa (west) coasts of India
Knowledge on the variability in quantity and compositions of various size groups of aerosols is important to understand their sources and their role in biogeochemical and climate processes. Here, we studied total suspended ...
Elevated acidification rates due to deposition of atmospheric pollutants in the coastal Bay of Bengal
(AGU Wiley, 2021)
Human inputs of pollutants to the atmosphere and subsequent deposition may decrease pH in the coastal waters. Significant rate of decrease in pH and increase in pCO2 by 3-5 times is noticed in the coastal Bay of Bengal ...
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 ...
Acidification of the coastal Bay of Bengal by aerosols deposition
Polluted aerosol transport from South Asia containing oxides of nitrogen and sulphur and their deposition on surface may acidify coastal waters. To test this hypothesis, we have conducted experiments involving (a) variability ...
Decadal variations in natural and anthropogenic aerosol optical depth over the Bay of Bengal: the influence of pollutants from Indo - Gangetic Plain
Perennial increase in atmospheric pollution over the Bay of Bengal (BoB) and South China Sea is reported due to increase in human population and industrial activity in South and Southeast Asia. Based on total aerosol optical ...
