Mixed response in bacterial and biochemical variables to simulated sand mining in placer-rich beach sediments, Ratnagiri, West coast of India
The influence of mechanical disturbance of sediment-akin to small scale mining on bacterial community and biochemical variables was investigated at Kalbadevi beach, Ratnagiri, a placer-rich beach ecosystem which is a ...
Stable nitrogen isotopic ratios of sinking particles and sediments from the northern Indian Ocean
Delta sup(15)N values in modern sediments of the northern Indian Ocean range from less than 4 ppt in the northern Bay of Bengal to greater than 11 ppt in the central Arabian Sea due to the strong spatial variability of ...
Butyltins in the sediments of Kochi and Mumbai harbours, west coast of India
Surface sediment samples were collected from various locations in the Mumbai and Kochi harbours, west coast of India, to assess the presence of butyltin compounds. Tributyltin (TBT) and dibutyltin (DBT) varied from 16 to ...
(ASM Press, 2008)
The deep-sea environment, despite being rich in mineral nutrients and near-saturation levels of oxygen, because of its darkness is not conducive to photosynthesis, the process that sustains life on earth. If a liigh abundance ...
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 ...
Intra-annual variations of arsenic totals and species in tropical estuary surface sediments
Arsenic totals and species were found to vary during a one year period in the surface sediments of Godavari estuary (the third largest river in India). This study suggests that increasing salinity of overlying water column ...
