Oceanography of the northern Arabian Sea
The euphotic zone of the northern Arabian Sea ranges from 20-60 m with an average depth of about 40 m. Surface temperatures range from 22.5 to 28.5 degrees C, increasing from north to south. At 1000 m, the temperature is ...
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, ...
Physical forcing of biological productivity in the northern Arabian Sea during the northeast monsoon
Time-series observations at a nominally fixed location in the northern Arabian Sea (21 degrees N, 64 degrees E) during the Northeast Monsoon (winter, February) of 1997 showed the prevalence of cold sea-surface temperatures ...
Mesozooplankton of the Arabian Sea: Patterns influenced by seasons, upwelling, and oxygen concentrations
The intensive study of the Arabian Sea during the 1990s included mesozooplankton investigations by the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Germany and the United States. Several major discoveries resulted. First, ...
