Enhanced export of carbon by salps during the northeast monsoon period in the northern Arabian Sea
A drifting sediment trap was deployed and sup(234)Th activity in the water column was measured to calculate export flux of carbon at a time-series station in the northern Arabian Sea (lat. 21 degrees 30 minutes N; long. ...
Radiolarian fluxes from the southern Bay of Bengal: sediment trap results
A study of radiolarian fluxes collected during 1991-93 from time-series sediment traps deployed at 1071 and 3010 m water depth in the southern Bay of Bengal (SBBT) yielded 40 species/groups of radiolarians. Among the order ...
Seasonal sea surface temperature contrast between the Holocene and last glacial period in the western Arabian Sea (Ocean Drilling Project Site 723A): Modulated by monsoon upwelling
Annual, summer, and winter sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the western Arabian Sea were reconstructed through the last 22 kyr using artificial neural networks (ANNs) based on quantitative analyses of planktic foraminifera. ...
An investigation into the conditions leading to monsoon onset over Kerala
Monsoon onset over the Kerala (MOK) coast has been studied using the recently released high resolution Hamburg Ocean Atmosphere Parameters and Fluxes from Satellite data (HOAPS 3). Columnar water vapour content, sea surface ...
Summer monsoon rainfall prediction for India - Some new ideas
(Narosa Publishing, 2005)
Present methods of forecasting of mean Indian rainfall for summer monsoon season are critically examined. Considering the wide variations in mean seasonal rainfalls (more than 5 to less than 400 cm) and crops in various ...
Monsoon driven changes in phytoplankton populations in the eastern Arabian Sea as revealed by microscopy and HPLC pigment analysis
Like the rest of the Arabian Sea, the west coast of India is subject to semi-annual wind reversals associated with the monsoon cycle that result in two periods of elevated phytoplankton productivity, one during the northeast ...
Sediment texture, distribution and transport on the Ayeyarwady continental shelf, Andaman Sea
The Ayeyarwady continental shelf is a complex sedimentary system characterized by large sediment influx (N360 million ton/yr), a wide shelf (N170 km), a strong tidal regime (7 m maximum tidal range), and incised by the ...
High new production in the Bay of Bengal: Possible causes and implications
(American Geophysical Union, 2004)
The first measurements of new production (sup(15) N tracer technique), the component of primary production that sustains on extraneous nutrient inputs to the euphotic zone, in the Bay of Bengal is reported. Experiments ...
Hydrological structure and biological productivity of the tropical Indian Ocean
(NIO, Dona Paula, Goa (India), 2000)
Hydrological structure analyses of regions in the tropical Atlantic Ocean have consistently revealed the existence of a typical tropical structure characterized by a nitrate-depleted mixed layer above the thermocline. The ...
