Mesozooplankton biomass, composition and distribution in the Arabian Sea during the fall intermonsoon: Implications of oxygen gradients
Mesozooplankton biomass and distribution of calanoid copepods were studied for the upper 500 m between 3 and 21 degrees N along an open-ocean transect in the Arabian Sea during the Fall Intermonsoon (September-October 1992, ...
Physical forcing of biological productivity in the northern Arabian Sea during the northeast monsoon
Time-series observations at a nominally fixed location in the northern Arabian Sea (21 degrees N, 64 degrees E) during the Northeast Monsoon (winter, February) of 1997 showed the prevalence of cold sea-surface temperatures ...
Living coccolithophores during the northeast monsoon from the Equatorial Indian Ocean: Implications on hydrography
Water samples collected at five stations along 931E section (1 degrees N-4 degrees S) during the northeast monsoon (12-15 February 2000) at five depths (surface, 50, 100, 150 and 200 m) in the eastern equatorial Indian ...
Carbon cycling in the northern Arabian Sea during the northeast monsoon: Significance of salps
Winter cooling and mixing brings nutrients (nitrate and phosphate) to the surface waters over large parts of the northern Arabian Sea, but the rates of primary production as well as carbon export from the euphotic zone are ...
Observations of barrier layer formation in the Bay of Bengal during summer monsoon
(American Geophysical Union, 2002)
Time series of temperature and salinity in the upper ocean, measured at 17 degrees 30'N, 89 degrees E in the northern Bay of Bengal, from 27 July to 6 August 1999 captured an event of upper layer freshening. Initially, the ...
Deep ocean fluxes and their link to surface ocean processes and the biological pump
Intense studies of upper and deep ocean processes were carried out in the Northwestern Indian Ocean (Arabian Sea) within the framework of JGOFS and related projects in order to improve our understanding of the marine carbon ...
