An atlas of mean distribution of precipitable water vapour over the tropical Indian Ocean for the year 1979
The monthly mean maps of the precipitable water (PW) over the tropical Indian Ocean are prepared using the data derived from the Nimbus 7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) sensor for the period January to ...
Sea level flactuations during last 15000 years and their impact on human settlements
(Hyderabad: Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), 2012)
Salt balance and mixing in the Bay of Bengal
Basic fields of temperature salinity, density and currents in the Bay of Bengal are investigated using data archieved at the National Oceanographic Data Centre (NODC) Washington, D.C. and the Indian National Oceanographic ...
Study of longshore current equations for currents in Visakhapatnam beach
Longshore currents were measured along the Visakhapatnam Beach, Andhra Pradesh, India at weekly intervals from March 1978 to March 1979. Visual observations on breaker characteristics were also made during this period. ...
Spatial tidal asymmetry of Cochin estuary, West Coast, India
An intensive one-month long observational campaign of tides and currents during dry season were used to describe the tidal dynamics and the spatial evolution of tidal asymmetry in Cochin estuary The estuary is described ...
Role of Effective Density in improving the accuracy of bottom pressure based sea level measurements - A case study from Gulf of Guinea
(Singapore: IEEE Singapore Section Secretariat, 2006)
Seasonal observations of a set of bottom pressures and concurrent tide-staff measurements from Takoradi harbour located in the Gulf of Guinea indicated that the effective depth-mean density value, rho sub(eff) of this clear ...
Recent studies on wind seas and swells in the Indian Ocean: A review
(SAGE Publications, 2013)
Winds and waves measured at a few locations along the west coast of India were analysed to study the wave characteristics in the deep as well as near shore regions during different seasons The potential generation of swells ...
Evidence for the existence of Persian Gulf water and Red Sea water in the Bay of Bengal
The high-salinity water masses that originate in the North Indian Ocean are Arabian Sea High-Salinity Water (ASHSW), Persian Gulf Water (PGW), and Red Sea Water (RSW). Among them, only ASHSW has been shown to exist in the ...
Longshore currents and associated sediment transport in the nearshore areas of Kerala and Goa, west coast of India
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1985)
The field observations on the longshore currents at selected locations along the coasts of Goa and Kerala on the western seaboard spanning over a period of five years revealed high variability in their direction and speed. ...
