(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1993)
Metapenaeus moyebi contributed a good share of penaeid prawn population in the Mandovi Estuary of Goa, India throughout the year. Both males and females of this species with fully mature gonads were observed in the estuary, ...
Mesozooplankton biomass, composition and distribution in the Arabian Sea during the fall intermonsoon: Implications of oxygen gradients
Mesozooplankton biomass and distribution of calanoid copepods were studied for the upper 500 m between 3 and 21 degrees N along an open-ocean transect in the Arabian Sea during the Fall Intermonsoon (September-October 1992, ...
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 ...
Role of salinity in structuring the intertidal meiofauna of a tropical estuarine beach: Field evidence
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1998)
Community structure of meiofauna was studied for 12 months (July 1991-June 1992) on an estuarine intertidal beach at Siridao, Goa (India). The temperature of the surf zone water ranged from 26.5 degrees to 30.7 degrees C; ...
Hydrographic characterization of southeast Arabian Sea during the wane of southwest monsoon and spring intermonsoon
Seasonal variation of the hydrography along the southeast Arabian Sea is described using data collected onboard FORV Sagar Sampada in September-October 2003 (later phase of Southwest monsoon, SWM) and March-April 2004 ...
Time-dependent stratification in the Gauthami-Godavari Estuary
(Estuarine Research Federation, 2001)
The time-dependent salinity stratification in an environment of highly variable turbulence of Gauthami-Godavari Estuary, Andhra Pradesh, India is described. From time series observations at three stations over two tidal ...
Pollutant dispersion studies - An update on the problems in Indian coastal waters
(Indian Inst. of Technol., New Delhi and NIO, India, 1994)
Pollutant dispersion problems along the Indian coastal waters are characterisEd. by site-specificity, as a result of seasonal and physiographic variabilities. Presence of large rivers, estuaries and backwaters add to the ...
Apportionment of sources affecting water quality: Case study of Kandla Creek, Gulf of Katchchh
(Taylor & Francis, 2009)
This study examines a large dataset collected over various seasons of the year in Kandla Creek, Gulf of Katchchh, India, to identify and assess the contributions of the sources affecting the water quality. Principal ...
Observed coherency in the seasonal sea level fluctuations along the coastline of the Indian subcontinent
(School of Naval Oceanology and Meteorology, 2007)
Seasonal sea level fluctuations result from oceanographic, meteorological and hydrological forcings. The largest seasonal signals of sea level, however, are primarily caused by hydrological forcings. The climatological ...
