Benthic biodiversity in the Pichavaram mangroves, Southeast Coast of India

An attempt was made to study the benthic biodiversity in Pichavaram mangrove ecosystem, Southeast coast of India. Monthly (duplicate) sampling was done in 3 stations, (Station I - fresh water zone, Station II - core mangrove zone and Station III - marine zone) for a period of one year from January 2008 to December 2008.

Morphodynamics and features of littoral cell circulation observed from sequential aerial photographs and Davies drifter along a section of the strand coast East of the Niger Delta, Nigeria

Sequential aerial photographs taken along a section of the Strand coast (longitude 07°35’00” and latitude 8°30’ 20”E)  East of the Niger Delta Nigeria were anaylsed to understand tidal inundation and resulting morphodynamic features as well as the littoral cell circulation patterns. Records from a Davis drifter deployed in the Qua Iboe River that traveled parallel to the...
