Studies on sup(226) Ra and sup(210) Pb activities and the concentration factors of sup(226) Ra in the surface organic layers of the estuarine sediments of Mindola and Purna rivers in India
The sediment samples have been collected from estuarine regions of Mindola and Purna of Gujarat State These samples are found to contain less than 3% of organic matter which scavenge and carry most of the activity of ...
Chemical composition of marine macrophytes and their surrounding water and sediments, from Minicoy, Lakshadweep
Among the marine algae studied, Herposiphonia spp showed highest concentration of nitrogen (6.55%). In seagrasses, Cymodocea rotundata was rich in nitrogen (6.19%) and organic carbon (30.8%). In general seagrasses were ...
Sediment depositional environment in some bays in Central west coast of India
Sediments in Kalbadevi and Mirya Bays are well sorted while those in Ratnagiri Bay are poorly sorted. Mean size of the sediments varies among the bays. Sediments in Kalbadevi Bay are both positively and negatively skewed ...
Physical factors related to the marine disposal of industrial effluents off Pondicherry
(Scientific Publishers, 1984)
Field studies were carried out during February and April, 1981 to collect the environmental data on the physical characteristics of the coastal waters and the sea bottom off Pondicherry, required for the planning and design ...
Living benthonic foraminifera in a tidal environment: Gulf of Khambhat (India)
Living benthonic foraminifera from the top one centimeter layer from 23 surface sediment samples have been studied. Samples were collected from the tidally affected inner shelf off the Daman Bombay sector of the Arabian ...
Phosphorus retention capacity of sediments in Mandovi estuary (Goa)
Experiments carried out under controlled conditions to study P retention capacity of sediments indicate that the processes of adsorption and desorption of P are pH dependent. Adsorption of P is maximum (58-99%) at pH 4. ...
