Origin and biochemical cycling of particulate nitrogen in the Mandovi estuary
Mandovi estuary is a tropical estuary strongly influenced by the southwest monsoon. In order to understand, sources and fate of particulate organic nitrogen, suspended particulate matter (SPM) collected from various ...
Benthic polychaetes in the Ratnagiri bay, India: Influence of anthropogenic factors
(Triveni Enterprises, 2011)
Study of changes in macrobenthic community structure is an intrinsic part of many environmental monitoring programmes. Hence, it is pivotal to distinguish the effects of natural and anthropogenic factors on these sensitive ...
Suspended sediment dynamics on a seasonal scale in the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries, central west coast of India
Suspended particulate matter (SPM) collected at regular stations from the Mandovi and Zuari estuaries indicates that the peaks of high SPM coincide with peaks of high rainfall and low salinity and also with peaks of ...
Pre- and post-monsoonal changes in grain size and heavy minerals in the sediments from Kalbadevi Bay, Ratnagiri, west coast of India
(NISCAIR (CSIR), 2011)
Sediments from the Kalbadevi Bay, Ratnagiri collected during January, May and October have been studied for processes responsible for the observed grain size variations and heavy mineral distribution. The study shows ...
Carbon dioxide observations at Cape Rama, India for the period 1993–2002: implications for constraining Indian emissions
(Current Science Association, 2011)
India has the second largest population, one of fastest growing economies and is ranked third in greenhouse gas emissions by fossil-fuel burning in the world. However, there has been little monitoring of atmospheric CO ...
Processes controlling the surface temperature signature of the Madden–Julian Oscillation in the thermocline ridge of the Indian Ocean
During boreal winter, there is a prominent maximum of intraseasonal sea-surface temperature (SST) variability associated with the Madden–Julian Oscillation (MJO) along a Thermocline Ridge located in the southwestern Indian ...
