Mesozooplankton community in the Bay of Bengal (India): Spatial variability during the summer monsoon
This study addresses the spatial variability in mesozooplankton biomass and composition in the Central and Western Bay of Bengal (India) during the summer monsoon season of 2001. Perennially warmer sea surface temperatures ...
Preponderance of a few diatom species among the highly diverse microphytoplankton assemblages in the Bay of Bengal
The microphytoplankton assemblages were studied from water samples collected at eight discrete depths in the top 120 m at five central [open ocean] and four western [shelf/slope region] locations in the Bay of Bengal. The ...
The effect of semi-permanent eddies on the distribution of mesozooplankton in the central Bay of Bengal
(Yale University, 2008)
Five locations in the central Bay of Bengal (BoB) along a longitudinal transect at 88E were sampled during the Fall Intermonsoon, 2002 for mesozooplankton biomass, abundance, groups and copepod species composition. Stations ...
Strong variability in bacterioplankton abundance and production in central and western Bay of Bengal
With large influx of freshwater that decreases sea-surface salinities, weak wind forcing of less than 10 m s sup (-1) and almost always warm (greater than 28 degrees C) sea-surface temperature that stratifies and shallows ...
Is the biological productivity in the Bay of Bengal light limited?
(Current Science Association, 2010)
Recent measurements of chlorophyll, primary productivity (PP) and nutrients along the central Bay of Bengal (BOB) during summer, fall and spring intermonsoons showed that the northern bay becomes less productive compared ...
