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 ...
Air-sea interaction over the Indian Ocean during the two contrasting monsoon years 1987 and 1988 studied with satellite data
The air-sea interaction processes over the tropical Indian Ocean region are studied using sea surface temperature data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer sensor onboard the NOAA series of satellites. 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 ...
Postglacial Indian Ocean
On the role of surface heat budget parameters over the tropical Indian Ocean in relation to the summer monsoon
(IAPSO Commission for Vickbura Oceanogr. Co-Operation in Dev. Countries, 1996)
This study presents the role of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal, cloud motion vector winds in the Equatorial Indian Ocean, and the cold fronts in the South Africa-Malagassy region on the ...
Predicting monsoon rainfall and pressure indices from sea surface temperature
(Current Science Association, Bangalore, 1997)
The relationship between the sea surface temperature (SST) in the Indian Ocean and monsoon rainfall has been examined by using 21 years data set (1967-87) of MOHSST.6 (Met. Office Historical Sea Surface Temperature data ...
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 ...
Assessment of water quality of a river-dominated estuary with hydrochemical parameters: A statistical approach.
This study was aimed (1) to evaluate the water quality of Chalakudy river, the fifth longest (145.5 km) river of Kerala (South India), by assessing the general hydrochemical parameters like temperature, dissolved oxygen ...
