Estuarine characteristics of the lower reaches of the River Periyar (Cochin backwater)
Lower reaches of river Periyar were studied to assess longitudinal extent of salt water intrusion into the system during different seasons and also its effect on the flushing of pollutants introduced by the industries. ...
Increased particle flux to the deep ocean related to monsoons
(Nature Publishing Group, 1989)
Monsoons cause seasonal reversals in the surface circulation of the northern Indian Ocean. In the Arabian Sea this results in the upwelling of nutrient-rich water along the coasts, making it one of the highly productive ...
Behaviour of boron in Mandovi estuary (Goa)
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1985)
Boron in the waters of Mandovi Estuary, Goa, India varied with tides and seasons with concentrations decreasing from mouth towards upstream. Higher concentrations of 0.51-5.83 mg kg1 and 0.03-4.42 mg kg-1 respectively were ...
Variations of dissolved oxygen in Mandovi and Zuari estuaries
During non-monsoon months the estuaries were well mixed showing uniform oxygen concentrations from surface to bottom. However, during monsoon months both the estuaries showed stratified conditions with surface water showing ...
Hydrochemistry of the Bay of Bengal: Possible reasons for a different water-column cycling of carbon and nitrogen from the Arabian Sea
A study on biogeochemical cycling in the western Bay of Bengal was undertaken during two seasons (pre-southwest monsoon and northeast monsoon of 1991). Relationships of the conservative tracers NO and PO with potential ...
Distribution of nutrients in the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1987)
Concentrations of nitrate and phosphate in the coastal waters of Goa varied from 0 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 and from 0.1 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 respectively, during post and premonsoon periods. In the estuarine region the nutrients ...
