Texture, carbonate content and component composition of Mauritius beach sands, Indian Ocean
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1988)
Samples collected from beaches bordering the southern, southeastern, western and northwestern shores representing swell (windward) and non-swell (leeward) dominated environments of the island of Mauritius were studied in ...
Fluctuation in glacial and interglacial sediment discharge of the River Indus as seen in the core from the Arabian Sea
Sediment core from the upper continental slope off Saurashtra Coast has been analysed for CaCO sub(3) and coarse fraction contents in addition to planktonic foraminifera and clay mineralogy. Based on CaCO sub(3) and ...
Planktonic foraminifera from core tops of western equatorial Indian Ocean
(Calcutta: Geological Survey of India, 1989)
A set of seven core tops from western equatorial Indian ocean were analysed for planktonic foraminifera, which has yielded 20 planktonic foraminiferal species. Among them Globorotalia menardii, Globigerinoides sacculifer ...
Nannoplankton from RC9-156 in the southeastern Arabian Sea
(Geological Society of India, 1983)
A deep sea core RC9-156 collected in the Arabian Sea at a water depth of 4583 m was analysed for calcareous nannoplankton and dissolution studies. Twelve species of nannoplankton were identified and based on the assemblage, ...
Distribution of calcareous nannoplankton from the sediments of the northwestern continental shelf of India
(Geological Society of India, 1985)
Ooids in deep sea core from the western continental margin of India
Nannoplankton from the Bombay-Saurashtra continental shelf of India: An appraisal using cluster analysis
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1984)
Nannoplankton data from 28 stations in the northwestern continental shelf of India was subjected to Q-mode cluster analysis. Two biotopes A and B were identified. Although, Gephyrocapsa oceanica was by far, the most abundant ...
Authigenic gypsum in a deep sea core from Southeastern Arabian Sea
(Geological Society of India, 1980)
Authigenic gypsum has been encountered in a deep sea core RC9-157 from the southeastern Arabian Sea at a depth of 4111 m which is a zone of lysocline. The formation of gypsum in the deep sea region is attributed to the ...
Nannoplankton from Recent sediments off the Andaman Islands
Sixteen sediment samples have been investigated for the distribution of nannoplankton. Of the total 38 species encountered, 14 are modern and remaining 24 are reworked fossils ranging in age from Eocene to Pliocene. Majority ...
