Radiolarian fluxes from the southern Bay of Bengal: sediment trap results
A study of radiolarian fluxes collected during 1991-93 from time-series sediment traps deployed at 1071 and 3010 m water depth in the southern Bay of Bengal (SBBT) yielded 40 species/groups of radiolarians. Among the order ...
Summer monsoon rainfall prediction for India - Some new ideas
(Narosa Publishing, 2005)
Present methods of forecasting of mean Indian rainfall for summer monsoon season are critically examined. Considering the wide variations in mean seasonal rainfalls (more than 5 to less than 400 cm) and crops in various ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...

Mesozooplankton biomass, composition and distribution in the Arabian Sea during the fall intermonsoon: Implications of oxygen gradients
Mesozooplankton biomass and distribution of calanoid copepods were studied for the upper 500 m between 3 and 21 degrees N along an open-ocean transect in the Arabian Sea during the Fall Intermonsoon (September-October 1992, ...
Hydrographic characterization of southeast Arabian Sea during the wane of southwest monsoon and spring intermonsoon
Seasonal variation of the hydrography along the southeast Arabian Sea is described using data collected onboard FORV Sagar Sampada in September-October 2003 (later phase of Southwest monsoon, SWM) and March-April 2004 ...
The oxygen minimum zone in the Arabian Sea during 1995
This paper focuses on the characteristics of the oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) as observed in the Arabian Sea over the complete monsoon cycle of 1995. Dissolved oxygen, nitrite, nitrate and density values are used to delineate ...
Observed variability of sea surface salinity and thermal inversions in the Lakshadweep Sea during contrast monsoons
The sea surface salinity (SSS) of the Lakshadweep Sea (LS) shows large seasonal variability due to horizontal advection of low (high) salinity waters from south (north) during winter (summer) monsoon. The measurements made ...
Spatial distribution of upwelling off the central east coast of India
(Academic Press, 2002)
The spatial distribution of upwelling along the central east coast of India (13 degrees-18 degrees N) in the premonsoon and south-west monsoon seasons is described using data collected during cruises 193 (13-28 March 1988) ...
Monsoon oscillations of the Findlater Jet and coastal winds of India
(PORSEC 2002 Secretariat; Bogor; Indonesia, 2002)
Intraseasonal variability (ISV) of the Low Level Jet (LLJ) and its effects on coastal winds during the Indian summer monsoon are examined using National Centre for Environmental Prediction / National Centre for Atmospheric ...
