Propagation of tides in the Mandovi-Zuari estuarine network
(ICMAM-PD, Chennai (India), 1999)
The propagation of tides in the Mandovi-Zuari estuarine network was studied based on the hydrographic observations; mathematical modelling; and chemistry of estuaries. The data was collected during the dry and wet season. ...
Ocean currents structuring the mesozooplankton in the Gulf of Mannar and the Palk Bay, southeast coast of India
We hypothesis perceptible physical barriers that exist between the deep Gulf of Mannar and shallow Palk Bay located between India and Sri Lanka, and seasonally reversing surface circulation patterns in the region have a ...
Impact of atmospheric and physical forcings on biogeochemical cycling of dissolved oxygen and nutrients in the coastal Bay of Bengal
Time-series observations were conducted off Visakhapatnam, central west coast of Bay of Bengal, from October 2007 to April 2009 to examine the influence of physical and atmospheric processes on water column nutrients ...

Atypical behaviour of dissolved silicate in the Cochin backwater and Periyar river
Dissolved silicate was determined for 1 y (1982-83) covering a wide range of salinity from the estuarine mouth to the fresh water region. Silicate concentration ranged between 0.03 and 4.75 mgl/1. Silicate-salinity ...
Role of salinity in structuring the intertidal meiofauna of a tropical estuarine beach: Field evidence
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Community structure of meiofauna was studied for 12 months (July 1991-June 1992) on an estuarine intertidal beach at Siridao, Goa (India). The temperature of the surf zone water ranged from 26.5 degrees to 30.7 degrees C; ...
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 ...
Estuarine characteristics of the lower reaches of the River Periyar (Cochin backwater)
Lower reaches of river Periyar were studied to assess longitudinal extent of salt water intrusion into the system during different seasons and also its effect on the flushing of pollutants introduced by the industries. ...
Ecological studies on the seasonal production of the edible oyster, Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) in Cochin Backwater, Kerala
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1981)
Seasonal variation in the standing crop of intertidal oyster Crassostrea madrasensis at Ramanthuruth and Vallarpadom in the Cochin backwater for the period July 1974 to December 1975 showed that the maximum yield (whole ...
Benthic studies in Goa estuaries: Biomass and faunal composition in the Zuari estuary
Macrobenthos in Mandovi, Cumbarjua canal and Zuari estuaries, a physically interconnected tropical estuarine system which undergoes large seasonal changes in salinity distribution due to heavy monsoonal precipitation, is ...
