Particulate carbohydrate in the euphotic zone of the Bay of Bengal
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1981)
Particulate matter collected from the Bay of Bengal was analysed for carbohydrate and chlorophyll a. The distribution of chlorophyll a was different from that of carbohydrate. Chlorophyll a increased from north to south, ...
Distribution of iodate in the south western Bay of Bengal
Low concentration of iodate at surface (Ca. 0.2 mu M) and an increase in deeper waters (Ca, 0.55 mu M) were observed in south western Bay of Bengal. A nutrient like behaviour of iodate was also found and phosphate showed ...
Calcium phosphate saturation in the western Bay of Bengal
Temperature, inorganic phosphate concentration and pH seem to be the major factors influencing the degree of saturation of calcium phosphate in sea water. Two water regions can be demarcated in the study area based on the ...
Distribution of nutrients in the western Bay of Bengal
Distribution of phosphates and nitrates in relation to some physico-chemical features of the western Bay of Bengal during August-September 1976 indicated marked regional variations. The mixed surface layer which was ...
Dissolved and particulate trace metals in the western Bay of Bengal
Concentrations of Cu, Zn, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni and Pb, both in soluble and particulate forms were studied in the upper 200 m depth. Correlation between the trace metal concentration and the primary productivity was also investigated. ...
