Shoreline stability in the vicinity of Cochin Harbour
A small stretch of barrier beach on either side of Cochin harbour along the west coast of India has been investigated for its stability through systematic surveys. The observed erosion of the beaches during the southwest ...
Climatic aridity over India 11,000 years ago: Evidence from feldspar distribution in shelf sediments
Feldspars and quartz contents of sand and silt fractions of forty three samples from the western continental shelf of India were determined by the X-ray diffraction method. The results indicate that the feldspar content ...

Mesoscale process-induced variation of the West India coastal current during the winter monsoon
This manuscript presents the analysis of current meter records at Kollam and Kannur along the 20-m isobaths during November�December 2005 Currents in the coastal waters are strongly influenced by winds (both local and ...
Currents and siltation at Dharamtar creek, Bombay
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1980)
Hydrographic data collected in Dharamtar Creek during 1976-77 have been analysed. This showed that the waters in the Creek are well mixed and the salinity varied with the tide. The tidal currents are found to be generally ...
ENSO-induced inter-annual sea level variability in the Singapore strait
Sea level data from four tide gauge stations in the SS (Tanjong Pagar, Sultan Shoal, Sembawang and Raffles Lighthouse) for the period 1970-2012 were extracted to study the ENSO-induced interannual sea level variability Sea ...
Influence of eastern Arabian Sea on summer monsoon rainfall over west coast of India
(Indian Meteorological Society, 1989)
Sea surface temperature (SST) anomalies have been assigned as one of the boundary conditions in the global circulation models for simulation of climatic changes. The effects of SST anomalies on the summer monsoon simulations ...
