Research and development for coastal zone
(International Ocean Institute, Madras, India, 1996)
A simple estimation of equatorial Pacific response from windstress to untangle Indian Ocean dipole and basin influences on El Nino
Sea Surface Temperature (SST) anomalies that develop in spring in the central Pacific are crucial to the El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) development. Here we use a linear, continuously stratified, ocean model, and its ...
Use of a chiA probe for detection of chitinase genes in bacteria from the Chesapeake Bay
PCR primers specific for the chiA gene were designed by alignment and selection of highly conserved regions of chiA sequences from Serratia marcescens, Alteromonas sp., Bacillus circulans and Aeromonas caviae. These primers ...
Hypoxia in the changing marine environment
(IOP Publishing, 2013)
The predicted future of the global marine environment, as a combined result of forcing due to climate change (e.g. warming and acidification) and other anthropogenic perturbation (e.g. eutrophication), presents a challenge ...
Zooplankton characteristics of the coastal ecosystem off Bombay, India
(Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, 1998)
The nearshore waters of Bombay sustain a rich and diverse zooplankton fauna. Continuous observations for a period of 15 months indicated a variation from 0.4 to 19.9 mg C.m sup(3) (av. 4.3 mg C.m sup(-3)) in zooplankton ...
Methane stimulates massive nitrogen loss from freshwater reservoirs in India
(Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
The fate of the enormous amount of reactive nitrogen released to the environment by human activities in India is unknown. Here we show occurrence of seasonal stratification and generally low concentrations of dissolved ...
Phylogenetic characterization of culturable bacteria and fungi associated with tarballs from Betul beach, Goa, India
Tarballs are semisolid blobs of crude oil, normally formed due to weathering of crude-oil in the sea after any kind of oil spills. Microorganisms are believed to thrive on hydrocarbon-rich tarballs and possibly assist in ...
Characteristics and genesis of phillipsite grains in a sediment core from the Central Indian Ocean Basin
Present study is the phillipsite grains present in a siliceous sediment core (water depth 5100 m) recovered near a seamount from the Central Indian Ocean Basin (CIOB). Phillipsite occurs as single grains, cruciform crystals ...
Measurement and modeling of bed shear stress under solitary waves
Direct measurements of bed shear stresses (using a shear cell apparatus) generated by non-breaking solitary waves are presented. The measurements were carried out over a smooth bed in laminar and transitional flow regimes ...
Distribution of Mercury in different abiotic and biotic sectors of the Mandovi-Zuari estuary (Goa)
This study highlights the behaviour of Mercury in the abiotic and biotic segments of the Mandovi-Zuari estuarine system Spatia l, seasonal (Premonsoon and Postmonsoon) and tidal, distribution of THg in dissolved/particulate ...
