Geoscientific investigations on the Indian coast: Their application to interpret the paleoclimates and future sea level changes with special reference to greenhouse effect
Objectives of this paper are: (1) To delineate the paleo sea level fluctuations and erosional environmental changes along the Indian Coast and their relationship with the changing coastline and human settlements in the ...
Recent foraminifera from polluted marine environment of Velsao beach, South Goa, India
(Museum d'histoire naturelle de Geneve, 1986)
Effect of temperature and salinity on stable isotopic composition of shallow water benthic foraminifera: A laboratory culture study
(Bengaluru: Geological Society of India, 2013)
Quantitative estimation of past climatic parameters from stable isotopic composition of foraminifera relies on estimating the precise relationship between stable isotopic composition of the species analyzed and the ...
Benthic foraminifers as indices of diversity and hyposalinity in a modern clastic shelf regime, off Bombay, India
(New Delhi: Oxford & IBH, 1985)
A tidally energized clastic shelf regime at 25-45 m depth off Bombay-Daman composed of silty sand, silty clay, and clay fractions is located between a sand bar and the coast. The sand bar, running parallel to the coast, ...
Proloculus size variation in Recent benthic foraminifera: Implications for paleoclimatic studies
Ratios of dimorphic (microspheric/megalospheric) forms of Foraminifera are affected by temperature and hence are useful in paleoclimatic studies. In some cases, however, it is not possible to distinguish between the dimorphic ...
Signals of the change in monsoonal precipitation at around 2,000 years BP in a sediment core off central west coast of India
(Current Science Association, 1994)
A 4.80 m long shallow water sediment core, collected from the inner shelf (at 22 m water depth) off Karwar near Kali River mouth is studied for foraminiferal tracers of palaeomonsoons. The climatic history of this core ...
