Increased particle flux to the deep ocean related to monsoons
(Nature Publishing Group, 1989)
Monsoons cause seasonal reversals in the surface circulation of the northern Indian Ocean. In the Arabian Sea this results in the upwelling of nutrient-rich water along the coasts, making it one of the highly productive ...
Characteristics of monsoon waves off Uran, west coast of India
Waves were measured off Uran in the Dharamtar creek (lat. 18 degrees 50 minutes and long. 72 degrees 55 minutes) during monsoon months from 26 June to 20 September 1984 using a Datawell wave rider buoy. The wave records ...
Seasonal patterns of phytoplankton biomass and productivity in a tropical estuarine complex (west coast of India)
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1989)
Phytoplankton cell numbers and chlorophyll a determinations were made during the premonsoon, monsoon and postmonsoon periods in the Mandovi-Zuari estuarine complex (west coast of India). Primary productivity estimates ...
Sedimentation of particulate material in stratified and nonstratified water columns in the Bombay high area of the Arabian sea
Sedimentation of particulate material at 22, 42 and 62 m was recorded at a station in the Bombay High area of the Arabian Sea from September 1985 to March 1986. Diatom numbers and physical structure, especially thermal ...
Seasonal variation in the proximate composition of rock oyster Saccostrea cucullata from Bombay coast
(Indian Fisheries Association, 1989)
Changes in proximate composition of soft tissue of rock oyster Saccostrea cucullata inhabiting a polluted station at Bandra (stn. B) and a relatively clean area at Mudh Island (stn. M) were studied. An average protein ...
Evaporation over the Arabian Sea during two contrasting monsoons
Monthly mean surface fields of different meteorological parameters and evaporation are studied for the 1979 (poor monsoon) and 1983 (good monsoon) monsoon seasons over the Arabian Sea, in order to understand the role of ...
