Organic carbon and humic acids in sediments of the Arabian Sea and factors governing their distribution
Organic carbon and humic acids in the sediments of the Arabian Sea show distinct regional variations to the south and north of 15~'N latitude. Significant variations are also observed from the shelf to the slope regions. ...
Grain size studies on the nearshore sediments of Jaigad, Ambwah and Varvada Bays, Maharashtra
(Geological Society of India, 1997)
Bivariate plots of the textural parameter data suggest overlapping environments, such as river/beach to JB, beach/dune/river to AB and dune/beach to VB sediments.
Seabottom backscatter studies in the western continental shelf of India
(Academic Press, 1999)
The study is initiated to observe the interaction effects of the sound signal with three different sediment bottoms in the shelf area between Cochin and Mangalore in the western continental shelf of India. An echo signal ...
Diagenetic remobilization of rare earth elements in a sediment core from the central Indian Basin
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1997)
Rare earth elements (REE) distribution in a 36 cm long sediment box core from the Central Indian Basin is studied. REE concentration is generally higher in the upper oxic zone than in intermediate suboxic zone suggesting ...
Geochemistry of deep-sea sediment cores from the Central Indian Ocean Basin
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Four sediment cores from the Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB) were studied to characterise the coarse fraction (less than 63 mu), transition metal and major oxide contents. Transition metals (Mn, Cu, Ni, Zn) show enrichment ...
Verdine and glaucony facies from surficial sediments of the eastern continental margin of India
The present paper reports the first mineralogical description of green grains (verdine and glaucony) from sediments of the eastern continental margin of India. Only 24 of the 82 sediment samples studied, at depths between ...
Beach processes between Mulgund and Shiroda, west coast of India
Study on beach processes for an year shows seasonal changes without annual net erosion. The beaches are stable and regain the maximum profiles during February to April. Distribution of longshore current direction is not ...
Granulometric analyses of pelites using a sedigraph: Examples from a Volcano-sedimentary environment
(Geological Society of India, 1993)
This article presents granulometric data of pelites (less than 40 microns) of mixed composition from a volcano-sedimentary environment. The sedigraph serves as an useful tool in the analyses of silt-clay fraction of marine ...
Structural characteristics of marine sedimentary humic acids by CP/MAS sup(13)C NMR spectroscopy
(Ifremer/ CNRS/ IRD/ Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS. Tous droits reserves, 1998)
Humic acids from sediments of different depositional environments have been studied by solid-state sup(13)C NMR and the results compared with the traditional wet chemical analysis. Results obtained are well in agreement ...
Lithological and mineralogical changes observed in a core from the western Bay of Bengal
(Allied, New Delhi (India), 1997)
Lithological and mineralogical studies were carried out on sediments from a 650 cm long core from the north western Bay of Bengal at a depth of 2700 m. These studies demarcate a boundary at 380 cm designated as unit 1 from ...
