Influence of climatic factors on Sargassum arrivals to the coasts of the Dominican Republic

Since 2011, the coasts of North America, Mexico, and the Caribbean have experienced an unusual increase in the arrival of Sargassum. A large amount of Sargassum has caused significant economic losses in the tourism sector of the Dominican Republic as well as the entire Caribbean region. The present article discusses the possible factors contributing toward this unusual increase. Large Sargassum masses are generated in the...

Applications of Support vector machine learning in Oceanography

Support vector machine is a supervised machine learning (ML) algorithm which splits cases of different class labels. SVM supports both regression and classification purposes and can handle multiple continuous and categorical variables. SVM Algorithm has proven to be a powerful tool for analysing ocean data, recognizing patter oceanographic phenomenon with high accuracy in an efficient way. ML has a wide spectrum of real...

Seasonally Reversing West India Coastal Current Balance Genetic Variation along the South-Eastern Arabian Sea

The honeycomb worm Sabellaria chandraae is the most common reef-building polychaete along the west coast of India, living in the intertidal area. Understanding factors that control the larval dispersal and larval supply of intertidal populations is a fundamental issue on the conservation biology, measuring connectivity patterns, and these methods often assume the dispersal patterns. We used the Cytochrome c Oxidase subunit...

Studies on Carbon Sequestration in Chlorella Vulgaris

Carbon sequestration was investigated using microalgae of Chlorella vulgaris in photo bioreactors (PBR). Culture was maintained at 24±1°C in a thermo-statically controlled room and illuminated with cool white inflorescence lamps (Philips 40W, Cool daylight 6500K) at an intensity of 2000 lux in a 12 h: light dark regime. In the present study, sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) used as a carbon source and their effect was...

The influence of sea surface temperature on tropical cyclones formed in the Bay of Bengal

The influence of sea surface temperature (SST) on tropical cyclones formed in the Bay of Bengal (5.5 to 21.5°N; 80.5 to 95.5°E) was examined, using 84 months (January 2008 to December 2015) of National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Optimum interpolation version 2 daily SST data. The formation of cyclonic storm (CS) was dominated during the monsoon and post monsoon periods where as the formation of severe...
