A foraminiferal testimony for the reduced adverse effects of mining in Zuari Estuary, Goa
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
This paper demonstrates the potentiality of foraminifera in detecting mining pollution. Goa's Mandovi-Zuari estuarine complex is most vulnerable to deterioration caused by the mining industry. The objective of the present ...
Calcite dissolution along a transect in the western tropical Indian Ocean: A multiproxy approach
(American Geophysical Union, 2007)
Three paleocarbonate ion proxies, size index, planktonic foraminifera shell weight, and calcite crystallinity, have been employed here to a set of core top samples from the western tropical Indian Ocean in the water depth ...
Rock magnetic records of the sediments of the eastern Arabian Sea: Evidence for the late Quaternary climatic change
Rock-magnetic measurements along with grain size, acid-insoluble residue (AIR), organic carbon (OC), CaCO sub(3) and delta sup(18)O of the planktonic foraminifers of the sediments were determined for 15 gravity cores ...
Ammolagena clavata (Jones and Parker, 1860), an agglutinated benthic foraminiferal species - first report from the Recent sediments, Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean region
(Cushman Foundation for Foraminiferal Research, 2004)
The rare presence of the agglutinated foraminiferal species Ammolagena clavata is presented for the first time from the Recent sediments of the Indian Ocean region. This species has previously been reported in Recent ...
Do inverted depositional sequences and allochthonous foraminifers in sediments along the Coast of Kachchh, NW India, indicate palaeostorm and/or tsunami effects?
The study of 134 subsurface sediment samples from three cores collected along the Coast of Kachchh, off Gujarat Province, NW India, shows the presence of 151 foraminifer species. Q-mode cluster analysis on foraminifer data ...
