Morphology of an uncharted seamount from Central Indian Basin
The morphology of a seamount at 12 degrees 35'S and 76 degrees 16'E is studied. This conical seamount has a maximum height of 1275 m (water depth 4135 m) and covers an area of about 189 sq km. The maximum basal extension ...
Underwater geomorphology as a function of the variations in ferromanganese nodule characters in the Indian Ocean
(Current Science Association, 1989)
Ferromanganese nodules from three areas in the northern part of the Central Indian Ocean Basin have been studied. Statistical analysis shows significant variations in morphological and physical characters of nodules between ...
Basinal seamounts and seamount chains of the Central Indian Ocean: Probable near-axis origin from a fast-spreading ridge
(American Geophysical Union, 1994)
Hydrosweep mapping of crust in the Central Indian Ocean Basin reveals abundant volcanoes occurring both as isolated seamounts and linear seamount chains parallel to flow lines. Their shapes, sizes and overall style of ...
