Carbonate mineralogy and faunal relationship in tropical shallow water marine sediments: Cape Comorin, India
The carbonate mineralogy of Recent sediments from the western and eastern continental shelves around Cape Comorin off the southern tip of India was determined by X-ray diffraction analyses. The results show that in the ...
Distribution and dispersal of clay minerals on the western continental shelf of India
Sediment samples distributed over a distance of 1700 km from the inner continental shelf of western India were analysed for their clay-mineral content by X-ray diffraction. The clay minerals present in the sediments, in ...
Beach changes at Visakhapatnam due to the cyclone of May 1979
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1982)
The impact of the May, 1979 cyclonic storm on Visakhapatnam beach, India and the observations made on beach profiles, waves and littoral currents prior to and during the storm are discussed. In general, at Visakhapatnam ...
Palynological investigation of the sediment cores from the Arabian Sea 2: Dinoflagellate cysts and acritarchs
(Palaeobotanical Society, Lucknow, 1982)
The present paper incorporates the study of dinoflagellate cysts and acritarchs recovered from five sediment cores from the Arabian Sea This assemblage is represented by 15 genera and 22 species Of these, 14 species belonging ...
Geomorphology of the Goa Coast
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1982)
This paper is based on the observations and interpretations of aerial photographs (1;25, 000 and 1:15, 000) of the Goa Coast. Aerial photocharacters like zonal differences, texture, shape, size, form, pattern, vegetation, ...
Magnetic anomalies and their possible relation with heavy mineral placers and basement configuration in Mirya bay, Konkan coast, Maharashtra, India
(Oslo: Institutt for geologi, Universitetet i Oslo, 1982)
The offshore ilmenite placers off the Konkan coast have been explored in detail by echosounding, shallow seismic profiling and magnetic measurements followed by extensive sea bed sampling. The magnetic data show two different ...
Recent marine microfauna from the continental margin, west coast of India
(NISCAIR, CSIR, 1982)
Recent sediments of the continental margin of west coast of India yielded @iGlobigerina hexagona@@ and @iGloboquadrina conglomerata@@ which disappeared from the Atlantic 50,000 to 1 million years ago. The bipolar species ...
Lineaments in the coastal zone of Goa
(Indian Society of Remote Sensing, Deharadun, 1982)
Foraminiferal assemblages and organic carbon relationship in benthic marine ecosystem of Western Indian Continental Shelf
Foraminiferal assemblages in the sediment and their relation to organic carbon have been studied in selected nearshore areas on the west coast, namely, Gulf of Kutch, Bombay-Daman sector, Vengurla-Dabhol sector, Cola Bay ...
On the possibility of high-velocity tidal sterams as dynamic barriers to longshore sediment transport: evidence from the continental shelf off the Gulf of Kutch, India
Differences in the bathymetry, bottom topography and the abundance of mica and clay minerals on the continental shelf north and south of the Gulf of Kutch, a macrotidal bay, indicate the presence of two distinct sedimentary ...
