Application of longshore transport equations to Andhra coast, East coast of India
Ship-reported waves published in the Indian Daily Weather Report are compiled for a period of 16 years and are used for the estimation of the longshore transport rate. Using the two well known longshore transport equations, ...
Nature of the observed oscillatory flows in shelf waters of the western continental shelf of India
(Tirunelveli: JCSONLINE, 1988)
Time series data on currents obtained from three Aanderaa current meters moored at a station depth of 92 m in the waters of the western continental shelf of India during May 1984 indicated the presence of oscillatory flows. ...
Variability in wave refraction and resultant nearshore current patterns: Exposed versus sheltered beaches along north Karnataka, west coast of India
For predominant waves approaching from directions varying between SW and WNW and periods varying from 6 to 11 sec, the refraction function (Kd) shows amplification of wave heights resulting in concentration of wave energy ...
Satellite-tracked drifting buoy observations in the south equatorial current in the Indian Ocean
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1988)
Three satellite-tracked drifting buoys released in the south equatorial current in the Indian Ocean followed the path of the current moving westward approximately zonally in the vicinity of 10 degrees S latitude. On nearing ...
Geoscientific investigations on the Indian coast: Their application to interpret the paleoclimates and future sea level changes with special reference to greenhouse effect
Objectives of this paper are: (1) To delineate the paleo sea level fluctuations and erosional environmental changes along the Indian Coast and their relationship with the changing coastline and human settlements in the ...
Shipboard and laboratory equipment
(New Delhi: Department of Ocean Development, 1988)
The polymetallic nodules occur at an average depth of 4500 m. Adequate equipment and techniques are required for the exploration at such depths. Shipboard and various laboratory equipments for the sampling of polymetallic ...
Link node model for the simulation of tides in the Gironde estuary, France
Effect of phase coupling on surface amplitude distribution of wind waves
Nonlinear features of wind generated surface waves are considered here to be caused by nonrandomness (non-Uniform) in the phase spectrum. Nonrandomness in recorded waves, if present, would be generally obscured within the ...
Absence of terraces on a submerged carbonate bank and its implications to Holocene sea level transgression on the western continental margin of India
(Goa: National Institute of Oceanography, 1988)
