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 ...
Seasonal variations of total suspended matter (TSM) in the Gulf of Khambhat, west coast of India
Total Suspended Matter (TSM)is an important parameter for determining the water quality in coastal regions as it is responsible for the reduction in the light available to the aquatic vegetation which subsequently alters ...
Assessment of the land use/land cover (LU/LC) and mangrove changes along the Mandovi–Zuari Estuarine complex of Goa, India
Land use/land cover change dynamics along the estuarine complex of Mandovi–Zuari in the coastal state of Goa, India is studied by the application of multi-temporal remote sensing data. This tropical estuarine region has ...
Simulation of coastal winds along the central west coast of India using the MM5 mesoscale model
A high-resolution mesoscale numerical model (MM5) has been used to study the coastal atmospheric circulation of the central west coast of India, and Goa in particular. The model is employed with three nested domains. The ...
