Study of Sediment Transportation in the Gulf of Kachchh, using 3D Hydro-dynamic Model Simulation and Satellite Data
A 3D hydrodynamic model ‘COSMOS’ is applied to the Gulf of Kachchh to predict tidal variation, ocean currents, residual tidal current, sea surface temperature distribution etc. The model is based on the hydrostatic and ...
Environmental studies on mangrove cover changes in Goa and its resident Crassostrea population
Mangroves form one of these major habitats, sustaining various types of fauna and flora of socioeconomic values. The physical structure of fishes and invertebrates is greatly influenced by mangroves. These habitats support ...
Environmental studies of the Arabian Sea using remote sensing, GIS and GPS techniques
The Arabian Sea, situated in the western part of the northern Indian Ocean is a tropical basin. It is bounded on the east by the Indian peninsula, on the north by Baluchistan and Sindh provinces of Pakistan and on the west ...
Analysis of chlorophyll pigment concentration in the northern Arabian Sea using remote sensing and GIS
The phytoplankton in the ocean plays an important role not only because it produces food that sustains the marine life, but also it is capable of regulating CO2 and there by influencing the climate of the earth system. It ...
Seasonal variability of the upper ocean driven by the atmospheric forcing and its regulation of nutrients and chlorophyll in the Bay of Bengal
The upper ocean is the most variable and dynamically active part of the marine environment that couples the underlying ocean to the atmosphere above through the transfer of mass, momentum and energy. The thickness of mixed ...
Role of eddies in the Bay of Bengal circulation and hydrography and in the distribution of nutrients and chlorophyll
Eddies are ubiquitous in the ocean and are products of geophysical turbulence. They develop from the hydrodynamic instabilities and are known to alter the physical and biochemical properties of the ocean. In the north ...
