Monitoring effects of simulated disturbance at INDEX site: Current status and future activities
(International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers, 2003)
During the Indian Deep-Sea Environment Experiment (INDEX), greater than 6000 cu.m of sediment was resuspended 5 m above seafloor. Data collected from deep-towed photography, sediment traps, sediment coring and CTD operations ...
Impacts on surface productivity during sediment dispersal experiment in Central Indian Basin
(Taylor and Francis, 2005)
It is anticipated that in the case of mining of marine minerals, sea floor sediments will be brought up along with the mineral ores and discharged on the surface. These nutrient rich sediments would create a set of different ...
Monitoring the sedimentary carbon in an artificially disturbed deep-sea sedimentary environment
An area of 0.6 km sup(2) in the manganese nodule field of the Central Indian Basin was physically disturbed and sediments discharged in the near bottom waters to simulate seabed mining and study its impact on benthic ...
Seafloor and sediment characteristics in INDEX AREA
(Metal Mining Agency of Japan, 1997)
Seafloor surveys and sediment sampling during the INDEX (Indian Deep-Sea Environmental Experiment) studies in the Central Indian Basin, resulted in identification of Test and Reference Areas, as well of establishment of ...
