Wave modelling for the North Indian Ocean using MSMR analysed winds
(Taylor & Francis, 2006)
NCMRWF (National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecast) winds assimilated with MSMR (Multi-channel Scanning Microwave Radiometer) winds are used as input to MIKE21 Offshore Spectral Wave model (OSW) which takes into ...
Tide dependent seasonal changes in water quality and assimilative capacity of anthropogenically influenced Mormugao harbour water
Water quality data from Mormugao harbour area at the mouth of Zuari estuary in Goa have been obtained over two tidal cycles monthly for the year 2003 to 2004. R-mode factor analyses of the data indicated strong positive ...
Identification of sources of tar balls deposited along the Goa coast, India, using fingerprinting techniques
Deposition of tar balls along the coast of Goa, India is a common phenomenon during the southwest monsoon. Representative tar ball samples collected from various beaches of Goa and one Bombay High (BH) crude oil sample ...
Estimation of carrying capacity of the Gulf of Kachchh, west coast of India in relation to petroleum hydrocarbon through oil spill modeling
(Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore, 2007)
The Gulf of Kachchh (GoK) is a semi-enclosed basin located in the northern part of the west coast of India, and opens to the Arabian Sea. GoK is about 170 km long and 75 km wide at the mouth, and encompasses several ...
Microplastic pollution: A serious threat to the marine ecosystem
(Indian Coast Guard, 2017)
Morphological changes at Godavari delta region due to waves, currents and the associated physical processes
(Geological Society of India, 1991)
Wave conditions, the most important in coastal modification, prevailing in the region of Godavari Delta for different seasons are illustrated. The analysis of GEOSAT altimeter data for the period November 1986 to October ...
Backtrack modeling to locate the origin of tar balls depositing along the west coast of India
Tar ball (TB) deposition along the West Coast of India (WCI) is a common phenomenon during the southwest monsoon season, particularly along the coast of Goa and Gujarat, and it is a major concern to the stake holders. Our ...
Coastal circulation off Ratnagiri, west coast of India during monsoon seasons: a numerical model study.
Present study is the coastal circulation modelling off Ratnagiri under the influence of winds and tides. A two-dimensional hydrodynamic model MIKE 21HD has been used to simulate tides and currents, and model results are ...
Seasonal sea level variability and anomalies in the Singapore Strait
(IIT; Madras, 2009)
Measured sea level data and extracted sea level anomalies (SLAs) for the Singapore Strait for the last 24 years have been analyzed. We have also analysed NCEP winds over the South China Sea for the same period in order to ...
Role of grounded ship 'MV River Princess' in triggering erosion: A case study from Candolim Sinquerim Coast, Goa.
(Centre for Earth Science Studies, 2010)
Multi-temporal satellite imageries of 1997, 2001 and 2006, wave model results and field observations were used to evaluate effect of the grounded vessel MV River Princess. Erosion was triggered along the Candolim-Sinquerim ...
