A first look at past sea surface temperatures in the equatorial Indian Ocean from Mg/Ca in foraminifera
Sea surface temperature (SST) for the central equatorial Indian Ocean, has been reconstructed over the last approx. 137 kyr, from Mg/Ca of the planktonic foraminiferal species Globigerinoides ruber. According to our record ...
Effects of sudden stress due to heavy metal mercury on benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei: Laboratory culture experiment
Laboratory culture experiments were carried out to understand the response of benthic foraminifer Rosalina leei to gradual as well as sudden addition of heavy metal mercury into the media. When mercury was added suddenly, ...
Geoscientific investigations of the seabed for paleoclimatic inferences: Thrust area for priority research in the nineties
(Geological Society Of India, 1990)
Ancient Indians (Harappan settlement) were aware of tsunami/storm protection measures: A new interpretation of thick walls at Dholavira, Gujarat, India
(Current Science Association, 2016)
Dholavira, an archaeological site of Harappan times in Gujarat, had ‘city fortification’ as a unique aspect of its town planning. The thickness of the main city wall is alarming3, 9, 10. The probable cause of such massive ...
Deterioration of Early Holocene coral reef due to sea level rise along west coast of India: Benthic foraminiferal testimony
(China University of Geosciences (Beijing), 2012)
A total of 103 surface sediment samples collected from the water depth range of 15-3300 m along Vijaydurg-Karwar stretch of central west coast of India were analyzed for foraminiferal content. Relict benthic foraminiferal ...
Distribution of benthic foraminifera within oxygen minima zone, off central west coast, India
(Gondwana Geological Society, 2003)
A total of 128 surface sediment samples (76 grab and 52 core top samples) were analyzed for benthic foraminiferal contents from the region off Goa, India in the eastern Arabian Sea upto a water depth of 3300 m. 195 species ...
Ecological response of foraminiferal component in the sediments of Kharo Creek, Kachchh (Gujarat), west coast of India
(ONGC, India, 2000)
A total of seven surface sediment samples collected within 4.4 m to 13.9 m water depth (below chart datum) from Kharo Creek were studied for their foraminiferal content. The study reveals forty seven foraminiferal species ...
Planktonic percentage of foraminiferal fauna in surface sediments of the Arabian sea (Indian Ocean) and a regional model for paleodepth determination
The percentage of planktonic specimens in foraminiferal assemblages were determined in 126 surface sediment samples (depth range 13 to 1050 m) from the Arabian Sea along the western continental margin of India. The results ...
Remunerative role of foraminifera in coastal ecosystem
(M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation, Madras, India, 1994)
Due to the direct relationship between climate and economy (through agriculture), predictive models for climatic changes are very much needed. Climatic prediction is a delicate task and depends upon how well know the past ...
Growing need to study foraminifera in the laboratory culture experiments: An attempt from the central west coast of India
(K.D. Malaviya Institute of Petroleum Exploration, Dehra Dun (India), 1996)
In recent past much emphasis has been laid on the high resolution reconstruction of the paleoclimatic conditions to help in preparing the futuristic climatic model. Many such efforts have used foraminifera as proxy indicators ...
