Record decrease of sea surface temperature following the passage of a super cyclone over the Bay of Bengal
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2004)
A super cyclone with a central pressure of 912 hPa which was the lowest sofar in any tropical cyclone in Bay of Bengal, hit Paradeep coast on 29th October, 1999. The system was stationary for 30 hours after landfall and a ...
Long-chain alkaenone unsaturation index as sea surface temperature proxy in southwest Bay of Bengal
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2006)
As a proxy of the sea surface temperature (SST), C sub(37) long-chain alkenones (LCAs) preserved in sediments of the southwestern Bay of Bengal and dating back to the last glacial period, were identified in SIM GC-EI MS ...
Amino sugars in suspended particulate matter from the Bay of Bengal during the summer monsoon of 2001
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2006)
Amino sugars (AS)are important constituents of organic matter.However,very little is known about their cycling in marine waters.In this research,we assessed the distribution and cycling of these compounds in waters of the ...
Primary description of surface water phytoplankton pigment patterns in the Bay of Bengal
Spatial and temporal variations in surface water phytoplankton pigment distribution in the Bay of Bengal were studied during the spring intermonsoon (SpIM, February–April) and the commencement of the summer monsoon (CSM, ...
Thermohaline structure and circulation in the upper layers of the southern Bay of Bengal during BOBMEX-Pilot (October-November 1998)
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2000)
Hydrographic data collected on board ORV Sagar Kanya in the southern Bay of Bengal during the BOBMEX-Pilot programme (October -- November 1998) have been used to describe the thermohaline structure and circulation in the ...
Radiolarian abundance - A monsoon proxy responding to the Earth`s orbital forcing: Inferences on the mid-Brunhes climate shift
(The Society of Earth Scientists, 2009)
Radiolarian fluxes from the sediment traps moored in the southern Bay of Bengal suggested that radiolarians were invariably higher at times of higher sea surface temperature (SST greater than or equal to 28 degrees C) and ...
Seasonal variation of microzooplankton (20-200 mu m) and its possible implications on the vertical carbon flux in the western Bay of Bengal
Stratification (throughout the year) and low solar radiation (during monsoon periods) have caused low chlorophyll a and primary production (seasonal average 13-18 mg m sup(-2) and 242-265 mg C m sup(-2) d sup(-1), respectively) ...
Port Blair declaration pledged to establish and develop Andaman and Nicobar Ocean Biogeographic Information System - Meeting report
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2007)
Run-up and inundation limits along southeast coast of India during the 26 December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2005)
The recent Indian Ocean Tsunami had a devastating effect on the Indian coastline. Apart from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the Tamil Nadu coast was the most affected. Post-Tsunami survey was carried out during ...
Dominance of dinoflagellates in micro-zooplankton community in the oceanic regions of the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea
(Indian Academy of Sciences, 2003)
Studies on microzooplankton, phytoplankton biomass (chlorophyll a) and production were conducted at five oceanic stations in the Bay of Bengal and Andaman sea onboard FORV Sagar Sampada during intermonsoon (March 2001). ...
