Grain size analysis of sediments from the northern Andaman Sea: Comparison of laser diffraction and sieve-pipette techniques
(Coastal Education and Reserch Foundation, 2006)
A comparison has been made of sand, silt, and clay percentage of 118 samples from the Ayeyarwady continental shelf, northern Andaman Sea, measured by the sieve-laser diffraction technique and by classical sieve-pipette ...
First phase monitoring studies of simulated benthic disturbance delineating movement of fine particles in the Central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
Benthic disturbance due to future deep-sea polymetallic nodule mining would involve extensive sediment plume generation and resedimentation on the sea floor. In order to evaluate the effects of resedimentation on benthic ...
Rare-earth elements and uranium in phosphatic nodules from the continental margins of India
(Society for Sedimentary Geology (SEPM), Tulsa, USA, 2000)
A sediment core collected from a bathymetric high off Goa on the western continental margin of India has yielded phosphatic nodules at various subsurface depths (at 110, 150, 305 355, 435, 500, 505 and 525 cm). The nodules ...
Clay minerals as palaeomonsoon proxies: Evaluation and relevance to the late Quaternary records from SE Arabian Sea
(NCAOR, Goa, 2005)
Palaeoclimatic studies are largely dependent on the quality of records and a prudent use of environmental proxy indicators. In this study, the factors affecting the detrital clay minerals in marine environment and their ...
Evidence of Himalayan erosional event at approx. 0.5 Ma from a sediment core from the equatorial Indian Ocean in the vicinityof ODP Leg 116 sites
A sediment core collected from an area _100 miles south of the ODP Leg 116 (distal Bengal Fan) in the equatorial Indian Ocean was investigated for microfossils, mineralogy, mineral chemistry, magnetic susceptibility, grain ...
