Denitrification rates and excess nitrogen gas concentrations in the Arabian Sea oxygen deficient zone
Rates of canonical, i.e. heterotrophic, water-column denitrification were measured by sup(15)N incubation techniques at a number of coastal and open ocean stations in the Arabian Sea. Measurements of N2 :Ar gas ratios were ...
Coastal versus open-ocean denitrification in the Arabian Sea
(The European Geosciences Union, 2006)
The Arabian Sea contains one of the three major open-ocean denitrification zones in the world. In addition, pelagic denitrification also occurs over the inner and mid-shelf off the west coast of India. The major differences ...
Severe fish mortality associated with 'red tide' observed in the sea off Cochin
(Current Science Association, 1998)
Severe fish mortality associated with the "red tide" phenomenon caused by Noctiluca blooms was observed in the sea off Cochin, Kerala, India at depths less than 40 m. The dead fish, almost entirely comprised of the threadfin ...
The Arabian Sea as a high-nutrient, low-chlorophyll region during the late southwest monsoon
(European Geosciences Union, 2010)
Extensive observations were made during the late southwest monsoon of 2004 over the Indian and Omani shelves, and along a transect that extended from the southern coast of Oman to the central west coast of India, tracking ...
Seasonal oxygen deficiency over the western continental shelf of India
The North Indian Ocean contains about two-third of the global continental-margin area affected by natural oxygen deficiency (O2 less than 0.2 mL L sup(-1)) in the water column. Also, the littoral countries of this ...
Increased marine production of N sub(2)O due to intensifying anoxia on the Indian continental shelf
Eutrophication of surface waters and hypoxia in bottom waters has been increasing in many coastal areas, leading to very large depletions of marine life in the affected regions. These areas of high surface productivity and ...
