Forty-two substrate sediment samples and three cores procured from the shelf region between Chennai and Cuddalore were analyzed to understand the spatial and vertical sediment distribution. Samples subjected to grain size, bulk and clay mineralogical analyses, REE and trace element geochemistry yielded interesting results about the sediment charact...
A fully comprehensive work comprising the systematics of benthic and planktonic foraminifera is attempted for the first time from the continental shelf-slope region between Chennai and Cuddalore on the east coast of India. A total of 45 surface sediment samples and 75 subsamples from three gravity cores obtained from various depths (10–300m) were a...
A total of 45 seafloor sediments procured from shelf-slope region off Chennai–Cuddalore in the Bay of Bengal and analyzed for ostracod population revealed the presence of 41 species in 30 genera. Based on the results, the dominant species include Cushmanidea spp., Actinocythereis scutigera, Caudites javanus, Neomonoceratina iniqua, Spinoceratina sp...
The ecological record of bryozoans from the continental shelf-slope region of the southwestern Bay of Bengal is very sparse, prompting this investigation. Forty-five sea-floor sediment samples were collected along eight transects during the cruise on R/V Sagar Paschimi from the offshore region between Chennai and Cuddalore in the southwestern Bay o...
The ecological record of bryozoans from the continental shelf–slope region of the southwestern Bay of Bengal is very sparse, prompting this investigation. Forty-five sea-floor sediment samples were collected along eight transects during the cruise—R/V Sagar Paschimi from the offshore region between Chennai and Cuddalore in the southwestern Bay of B...
An attempt has been made to know the distribution of planktonic foraminifera in the continental shelf-slope region between Chennai and Cuddalore in the Bay of Bengal collected during a cruise. Fifteen species were identified from forty five grab samples. The total population is found to increase significantly from 30 m to the deeper region with max...
Benthic foraminifera from both surface and core sediments collected along two transects in the offshore region of Cuddalore were studied in parallel to environmental variables and sediment characteristics. Altogether 95 species belonging to 47 genera and 6 orders were identified. Analysis revealed that species richness is high in the inner shelf wh...
The present study aims to understand the distribution of benthic foraminifera in the surface sediments collected from the offshore region between Mahabalipuram and Marakkanam along the east coast of India. Analysis reveals the presence of 89 species belonging to 16 families and 5 orders. Faunal assemblage in the fine grained sediments are character...
Apart from Taxonomy, Identification of Forams, Can anyone suggest applications of Estuarine Foraminifera in relation to Geology and Ecology?
