High new production in the Bay of Bengal: Possible causes and implications
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
The first measurements of new production (sup(15) N tracer technique), the component of primary production that sustains on extraneous nutrient inputs to the euphotic zone, in the Bay of Bengal is reported. Experiments ...
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 ...
Carbon cycling in the northern Arabian Sea during the northeast monsoon: Significance of salps
Winter cooling and mixing brings nutrients (nitrate and phosphate) to the surface waters over large parts of the northern Arabian Sea, but the rates of primary production as well as carbon export from the euphotic zone are ...
Biogeochemical processes in the northern Indian Ocean
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, ...
Increased particle flux to the deep ocean related to monsoons
(Nature Publishing Group, 1989)
Monsoons cause seasonal reversals in the surface circulation of the northern Indian Ocean. In the Arabian Sea this results in the upwelling of nutrient-rich water along the coasts, making it one of the highly productive ...
Distribution of nutrients in the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1987)
Concentrations of nitrate and phosphate in the coastal waters of Goa varied from 0 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 and from 0.1 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 respectively, during post and premonsoon periods. In the estuarine region the nutrients ...
Relationship between particulate and extracellular carbon compounds of phytoplankton photosynthesis in a tropical estuary
The influence of seasonal environmental conditions on the formation and release of organic compounds by photosynthesizing phytoplankton was studied in a tropical estuary. The pattern of 14C fixation into the various ...
Particulate organic matter in shelf waters of Prinsesse Asrid Kyst, Antarctica
(Cambridge University Press, 1989)
In the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa, particulate organic carbon (POC) varied from 0.52 to 2.51 mg l-1 and from 0.28 to 5.24 mg l-1 and particulate phosphorus (PP) varied from 0.71 to 5.18 mu g l-1 and from 0.78 to ...
