Quaternary radiolarian faunal changes in the tropical Indian Ocean: Inferences to paleomonsoonal oscillation of the 10 degrees S hydrographic front
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, 1997)
The northern Indian Ocean is characterized by three distinct surface water masses, i.e. (1) highly saline (greater than 34.5 ppt) Arabian Sea, (2) low saline (less than 34.5 ppt) Bay of Bengal and (3) a moderate salinity ...
Radiolarian monsoonal index Pyloniid group responds to astronomical forcing in the last approx. 500,000 y ears: Evidence from the Central Indian Ocean
(Indian Society for Prehistoric and Quaternary Studies, 1999)
Pyloniid radiolarians, oceanic micro-zooplanktons (surface water dwelling), are sensitive to monsoon sea surface temperature and salinity, and their variation down a core may provide an insight into the proxy climatic ...
