Carbonate mineralogy and faunal relationship in tropical shallow water marine sediments: Cape Comorin, India
The carbonate mineralogy of Recent sediments from the western and eastern continental shelves around Cape Comorin off the southern tip of India was determined by X-ray diffraction analyses. The results show that in the ...
Beachrock and associated carbonate sediments on the fifty fathom flat, a submarine terrace on the outer continental shelf off Bombay
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1971)
Lack of cross-shelf transport of sediments on the western margin of India: Evidence from clay mineralogy
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1989)
The distribution of clay minerals on the inner shelf, outer shelf and in a 6 month sediment trap on the western continental shelf of India has been studied. Marked compositional differences in the inner shelf clays ...
Clay mineral distribution on the Kerala continental shelf and slope
(Geological Society of India, 1983)
Seventy-five sediment samples collected from the Kerala continental shelf and slope during the 17th and 71st Cruises of @iRV gaveshani@@ were analysed by X-ray diffraction for clay mineral cntent. The distribution of total ...
Mineralogy of the carbonate sediments - western continental shelf of India
An X-ray diffraction study of forty-six sediment samples and three oolitic limestone samples from the western continental shelf of India shows that aragonite is the dominant carbonate mineral (99% maximum), followed by ...
Distribution and dispersal of clay minerals on the western continental shelf of India
Sediment samples distributed over a distance of 1700 km from the inner continental shelf of western India were analysed for their clay-mineral content by X-ray diffraction. The clay minerals present in the sediments, in ...
Submarine canyons off the Coromandel coast
(National Institute of Sciences of India, 1968)
During the 26th Cruise of I.N.S. `KISTNA', a bathymetric survey was carried out in some detail off the Pondicherry coast. This survey has revealed the existence of three sets of distinctly separate canyons between Cuddalore ...
Influence of estuaries on shelf sediment texture
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1986)
Granulometric analyses of sediments on the western continental shelf of India demonstrate that the texture of inner continental shelf sediments (10 to 60 m water depth) appears to be determined by the size and number of ...
Heavy minerals in the sediments on the outer continental shelf between Vengurla and Mangalore on the west coast of India
(Geological Society of India, 1981)
Fifty-eight sediment samples from the outer continental shelf between Vengurla and Mangalore were analysed for heavy minerals consist of principally opaques, hornblende, epidote, garnet, sillimanite, hypersthene and zircon, ...
