Trigonium curvatus sp nov and Trigonium arcticum (Bacillariophyceae) from the surface sediments of Prydz Bay, east Antarctica
(Micropaleontology Press, 2015)
Here we propose a new species of genus Trigonium namely Trigonium curvatus from the surface sediments of coastal Antarctica A comparative study was done between Trigonium curvatus and Trigonium arcticum to find out the ...
Evidence for seafloor spreading in the Laxmi Basin, northeastern Arabian Sea
Marine magnetic anomaly data from the Laxmi Basin for the first time reveal the presence of fairly correlatable NNW-trending magnetic lineations. These magnetic lineations are symmetric about a central negative magnetic ...
Our changing coastlines
Our coastlines keep alive the sense of continuing creation and of the relentless drive of life In recent years, much has been done both to understand the processes that underlie their creation and to exploit their environment ...
Agglutinated foraminifera from the shelf of east coast of India
Of the benthonic foraminiferal species, the agglutinated forms form one of the distinctive elements by differing in type and the degree of their abundance in the several zones of the marine environment. The role played by ...
Manganese in the shelf sediments off the west coast of India
(Current Science Association, 1968)
The distribution pattern of manganese in the marine sediments of the west coast of India was studied in relation to the source and environmental factors. The progressive decrease in the manganese content of the sediments ...
Mineralogy of the carbonate sediments - western continental shelf of India
An X-ray diffraction study of forty-six sediment samples and three oolitic limestone samples from the western continental shelf of India shows that aragonite is the dominant carbonate mineral (99% maximum), followed by ...
Submerged terraces in the Laccadive islands, India
Studies on the sediments of Vembanad Lake, Kerala State: Part I - Distribution of organic matter
Distribution patterns of FE, Mn, Ti, Ni, Co and Cu in sediments of Vembanad Lake and adjoining river systems have revealed that (1) elemental concentrations follow closely the texture of the sediments, (2) river sands ...
Modelling of wave propagation over a submerged sand bar using SWASH
A non-hydrostatic numerical model "SWASH" (Simulating WAves till SHore) is used to study the wave propagation over a submerged sand bar in a wave flume The SWASH model is calibrated and further used to validate the wave ...
A petrographic study of Precambrian quartzites from Goa coast
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1980)
A petrographic and heavy minerals study of quartzites along the Goa Coast, India has been undertaken to decipher their sediment history. The quartzite outcrops exhibit well preserved primary sedimentary structures like ...
