Barium as a productivity proxy in continental margin sediments: A study from the eastern Arabian Sea
Barium, aluminium, cadmium and uranium were analyzed in 112 surface sediment samples from the western continental margin, of India. Excess Ba (Ba sub(xs)) concentrations are high at the SW margin of India, an area of high ...
Distribution and sources of organic matter in surface sediments of the eastern continental margin of India
(American Geophysical Union, 2013)
The sources and distribution of organic matter (OM) in surface sediments of the eastern continental margin of India, including the region influenced by river discharge, were investigated using content, molar C:N ratios and ...
Aeolian deposition of Arabia and Somalia sediments on the southwestern continental margin of India
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, India, 1996)
Kaolinite, smectite, illite and chlorite as major clay minerals and palygorskite and gibbsite in minor quantities have been recorded from the slope of southwestern continental margin of India. Contribution of kaolinite, ...
Ooid turbidites from the Central Western continental margin of India
Gravity displaced debris flows/turbidites have been observed in five box cores collected between water depths of 649 and 3,627 m from the Central Western continental margin of India. Studies on grain size, carbonate content, ...
Partitioning and speciation of trace metal diagenesis in differing depositional environments in the sediments of the Oman margin
Organic-rich sediment samples collected from a transect within, and below, the Oman Margin oxygen minimum zone (OMZ)were analysed using a sequential leaching technique to characterise the diagenetic behaviour and speciation ...
Distribution patterns of Recent planktonic foraminifera in surface sediments of the western continental margin of India
Study of Recent plankton foraminifera from the surface sediment samples of western continental margin of India reveals the ecological preferences of the different planktonic foraminifera species in the area. Higher absolute ...
