Distribution of strontium in sediments of the Minicoy atoll, Lakshadweep
Sr content in 67 sediment samples collected from the Minicoy reef and lagoon varies from 3960 to 7000 ppm (av. 5630 ppm). The concentration increases from the reef (c 4,000 ppm) in the north and west to the centre of the ...
Acoustic masking in sediments due to gases on the western continental shelf of India
Surveys carried out on the western continental shelf of India indicate that the inner and middle shelf to a depth of 50-60 m is covered by acoustically transparent clays. On the shelf off Bombay, the clays are thin near ...
Distribution of Al, Mn, Ni, Co & Cu in the non-lithogenous fractions of sediments of the northern half of the western continental shelf of India
Higher amounts of elements are associated with the nonlithogenous fractions of the fine grained terrigenous sediments of the innershelf region with low carbonate content than with the corresponding fractions of the coarse ...
Distribution of Fe, Mn, Ni, Co, Cu and Zn in non-lithogenous fractions of sediments of Gulf of Kutch
Contributions made by non-lithogenous fractions of sediments constitute a significant portion of the concentrations of the elements associated with the total sediment samples. The minor differences found in their distribution ...
Geochemistry of sediment cores of the western equatorial Indian Ocean
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1983)
Geochemical investigations including partition analysis have been carried out on nine sediment cores from the western equatorial Indian Ocean. The results show that a core from the Arabian Sea exhibits a greater terrigenous ...
