Zooplankton studies in Visakhapatnam harbour and nearshore waters, east coast of India
Distribution of zooplankton biomass in the waters studied showed remarkable variations. The faunal composition was very diverse and the number of species present was more especially during late pre- and post-monsoon seasons ...
Sediment texture, distribution and transport on the Ayeyarwady continental shelf, Andaman Sea
The Ayeyarwady continental shelf is a complex sedimentary system characterized by large sediment influx (N360 million ton/yr), a wide shelf (N170 km), a strong tidal regime (7 m maximum tidal range), and incised by the ...
High new production in the Bay of Bengal: Possible causes and implications
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
The first measurements of new production (sup(15) N tracer technique), the component of primary production that sustains on extraneous nutrient inputs to the euphotic zone, in the Bay of Bengal is reported. Experiments ...
Oceanography of Wadge bank - current measurements over a tidal cycle off the south coast of India
Direct current measurements made during the onset and termination of SW monsoon indicate wide fluctuations in space and time. The nearshore current decreases in magnitude from the onset to the termination of the monsoon. ...
Vertical distribution of mesozooplankton in the central and eastern Arabian Sea during the winter monsoons
(Cambridge University Press, 1998)
The vertical distribution of mesozooplankton in the central and eastern Arabian Sea was investigated during the winter monsoon in 1995. Samples were analysed from discrete depth zones defined according to oxygen and ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...
Response of Barrier beaches along the southwest coast of India to monsoonal forcing
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1987)
The response of a small stretch of barrier beach along the southern part of the west coast of India to the southwest wind and wave climates showed wide variations when examined through empirical Eigen function analysis. ...
Biodeterioration of wood in estuarine ecosystem of Goa
(US Office of Naval Research, 1997)
An assessment of macrofouling and wood boring community at different localities of Zuari and Mandovi estuaries of Goa carried out. Wood panels of Mangifera indica of 10 x 15 x 2.5 cm size were exposed in this investigation. ...
Postglacial Indian Ocean
Hydrography and circulation in the western Bay of Bengal during the northeast monsoon
(American Geophysical Union, 1996)
The Bay of Bengal, a semienclosed tropical basin that comes under the influence of monsoonal wind and freshwater influx, is distinguished by a strongly stratified surface layer and a seasonally reversing circulation. We ...
