Nature of the observed oscillatory flows in shelf waters of the western continental shelf of India
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1988)
Time series data on currents obtained from three Aanderaa current meters moored at a station depth of 92 m in the waters of the western continental shelf of India during May 1984 indicated the presence of oscillatory flows. ...
Upwelling along the western Indian continental margin and its geological record - a summary
(New York: Plenum, 1983)
Upwelling along the western Indian continental margin is recorded each year from Cape Comorin to Cochin and further north up to Goa from June to September during the southwest monsoon. During this upwelling heavy phytoplankton ...
Geoscientific investigations on the Indian coast: Their application to interpret the paleoclimates and future sea level changes with special reference to greenhouse effect
Objectives of this paper are: (1) To delineate the paleo sea level fluctuations and erosional environmental changes along the Indian Coast and their relationship with the changing coastline and human settlements in the ...
Shipboard and laboratory equipment
(New Delhi: Department of Ocean Development, 1988)
The polymetallic nodules occur at an average depth of 4500 m. Adequate equipment and techniques are required for the exploration at such depths. Shipboard and various laboratory equipments for the sampling of polymetallic ...
Exchange of fluxes across the air-sea interface during the onset phase of the southwest monsoon
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1985)
The fluxes of momentum, sensible and latent heat over the southwest coast of India for the period of 27th May-10th June, 1984 based on the surface meteorological data have been presented on the time scale. The latent heat ...
Foraminifera as climatic indicators in the sediments of Western Indian continental shelf
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1973)
Foraminifera are the single celled microscopic organisms found abundantly in the seas and oceans. The tests of these organisms are preserved in the present sediments of the ocean as in the past, sometimes constituting ...
A numerical wave prediction model dolphin: Theory and test results
This report gives the basic theory of ocean waves and ocean wave prediction and a description of the physical background and of tests of the wave hindcast model Dolphin
Surface temperature of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and the Indian rainfall
(Current Science Association, 1988)
The time variation of the monthly mean surface temperature of the equatorial Pacific Ocean during 1982-1987 has been studied in relation to summer monsoon rainfall over India The ENSO events of 1982 and 1987 were related ...
Scattering of Rossby and Poincare waves off rough lateral boundaries
Unified treatment of wave scattering from a rough boundary, which was originally developed by Nakayama et al. is presented. The stationary nature of the boundary process is used to show that the wave field is also stationary, ...
Determination of wave direction from linear and polygonal arrays
Two key issues that have militated against popular adoption of methods based on phase/time/path difference concepts for the determination of wave direction from array measurements are addressed in this paper: the first ...
