Hydrographic changes in the Agulhas Recirculation Region during the late Quaternary.
(European Geosciences Union, 2014)
The strength of Southern Hemisphere westerlies, as well as the positions of the subtropical front (STF), Agulhas Current (AC) and Agulhas Return Current (ARC) control the hydrography of the southwestern Indian Ocean. ...
Distributional pattern of benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups in the shelf region off Mangalore: Environmental implications
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1995)
The foraminiferal population in 45 surface sediment samples (20-86 m water depth) off Mangalore, Karnataka, India, was divided into benthic and planktonic assemblages. Within the benthic community based on the external ...
Can benthic foraminiferal morpho-groups be used as indicators of paleomonsoonal precipitation?
(Academic Press, 1992)
A technique is proposed for the quick and easy assessment of paleomonsoonal precipitation through the study of morphological groups of foraminifera in a shallow water (20 m water depth) sediment core collected off Karwar, ...
Ecological response of foraminiferal component in the sediments of Kharo Creek, Kachchh (Gujarat), west coast of India
(ONGC, India, 2000)
A total of seven surface sediment samples collected within 4.4 m to 13.9 m water depth (below chart datum) from Kharo Creek were studied for their foraminiferal content. The study reveals forty seven foraminiferal species ...
Growing need to study foraminifera in the laboratory culture experiments: An attempt from the central west coast of India
(K.D. Malaviya Institute of Petroleum Exploration, Dehra Dun (India), 1996)
In recent past much emphasis has been laid on the high resolution reconstruction of the paleoclimatic conditions to help in preparing the futuristic climatic model. Many such efforts have used foraminifera as proxy indicators ...
Can the possibility of some linkage of monsoonal precipitation with solar variability be ignored? Indications from foraminiferal proxy records
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2006)
Foraminiferal studies on a shallow water sediment core off Karwar, central west coast of India have revealed significant changes in the monsoonal precipitation during the last around 720 years. The results hint towards ...
Evidences of monsoon variability from marine sediments: A comparison with archaeological records
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa, India, 1997)
Revealing monsoonal variability of the last 2,500 years over India using sedimentological and foraminiferal proxies
A 2-m-long, shallow-water sediment core, representing the last 2,500 years, collected from the tropical Arabian Sea from the inner shelf (22 m water depth) off Karwar (Karnataka, India) near the mouth of the Kali River, ...
The reciprocity between coiling direction and dimorphic reproduction in benthic foraminifera
(The Geological Society Publishing House, 1992)
There are various opinions as to what parameter influences the coiling directions in foraminifera. "Do microspheric and megalospheric generations have different coiling ratios?" is an unanswered question in foraminiferal ...
Significance of correspondence between river discharge and proloculus size of benthic foraminifera in paleomonsoonal studies
Variations in the mean proloculus size (MPS) of the benthic foraminiferal species Rotalidium annectens were studied in a core collected off Karwar (20 m water depth), on the west coast of India. Comparison of downcore ...
