Influence of physical processes and freshwater discharge on the seasonality of phytoplankton regime in the Bay of Bengal
The seasonality of phytoplankton was examined in the western and northern Bay of Bengal using shipboard data collected during three seasons as well as ocean colour imagery from OCTS and Sea WiFS. Seasonal changes in the ...
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 ...
Nitrogen uptake by size-fractionated phytoplankton in mangrove waters
(Inter Research, 2005)
Seasonal changes in the uptake of nitrogenous nutrients (nitrate, nitrite, ammonium and urea) in 2 size fractions (netplankton: 20 to 200 Mu m; and nanoplankton: 0.8 to 20 Mu m) were studied in relationship to the phytoplankton ...
Natural isotopic composition of nitrogen in suspended particulate matter in the Bay of Bengal
(The European Geosciences Union, 2004)
The first measurements of nitrogen isotopic composition (delta sup(15) N) in suspended particulate matter (SPM) of the surface Bay of Bengal (BOB) at 24 different locations during pre- (April-May 2003) and post- ...
Assimilation potential of water column biota: Mesocosm-based evaluations
(Tata Energy Research Institute, India, 2003)
This chapter presents a generalized picture of various aspects of assimilation by native biota and underscores the importance of safeguarding the environment from excessive discharge of nutrient-rich effluents, even though ...
