Radiolarian fluxes from the southern Bay of Bengal: sediment trap results
A study of radiolarian fluxes collected during 1991-93 from time-series sediment traps deployed at 1071 and 3010 m water depth in the southern Bay of Bengal (SBBT) yielded 40 species/groups of radiolarians. Among the order ...
Summer monsoon rainfall prediction for India - Some new ideas
(Narosa Publishing, 2005)
Present methods of forecasting of mean Indian rainfall for summer monsoon season are critically examined. Considering the wide variations in mean seasonal rainfalls (more than 5 to less than 400 cm) and crops in various ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...
Postglacial Indian Ocean
Variability of mixed layer depth in the northern Indian Ocean during 1977 and 1979 summer monsoon seasons
Influences of wind stress (tau) and wind stress curl (Grad Gamma) on the short term variability of the mixed layer depth at different locations in the northern Indian Ocean during different phases of summer monsoon activity ...
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, ...
Hydrographic characterization of southeast Arabian Sea during the wane of southwest monsoon and spring intermonsoon
Seasonal variation of the hydrography along the southeast Arabian Sea is described using data collected onboard FORV Sagar Sampada in September-October 2003 (later phase of Southwest monsoon, SWM) and March-April 2004 ...
Estuarine characteristics of the lower reaches of the River Periyar (Cochin backwater)
Lower reaches of river Periyar were studied to assess longitudinal extent of salt water intrusion into the system during different seasons and also its effect on the flushing of pollutants introduced by the industries. ...
Studies on beach changes at Visakhapatnam
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1981)
Various factors controlling the coastal processes at 7.5 km long Visakhapatnam Beach were investigated in detail. Studies reveal that the depositional and erosional phases differ from place to place along this coast. Major ...
The oxygen minimum zone in the Arabian Sea during 1995
This paper focuses on the characteristics of the oxygen minimum zone (OMZ) as observed in the Arabian Sea over the complete monsoon cycle of 1995. Dissolved oxygen, nitrite, nitrate and density values are used to delineate ...
