The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrora-diometer (MODIS) onboard EOS Terra measures global aerosol optical depth and optical properties since 2000. MODIS aerosol products are freely available and are being used for numerous studies. In this paper, we present a comparison of aerosol optical depth (AOD) retrieved from MODIS with Aerosol Robotic Network(More)
A model stomach system was used to investigate disintegration of various foods in simulated gastric environment. Food disintegration modes and typical disintegration profiles are summarized in this paper. Mechanisms contributing to the disintegration kinetics of different foods were investigated as related to acidity, temperature, and enzymatic effect on(More)
a1 b a b and cladocera and 2 to protozoa. Rotifera was the most dominant group throughout the study period. Seasonal variations were observed in the distribution of zooplanktons. Seasonally, the number was highest during summer, followed by monsoon and lowest during winter. Zooplanktons are minute aquatic organisms that are non-motile or are swimmers and(More)
Water masses of different temperature and salinity partially govern the distributions of chlorophyll concentration. In the present paper, chlorophyll concentration has been deduced over the northeastern Arabian Sea and the southern Bay of Bengal using Ocean Color Monitor (OCM) data onboard Indian Remote Sensing Series Polar satellite (IRS-P4). The(More)
The monitoring of terrestrial carbon dynamics is important in studies related with global climate change. This paper reports the inter-annual variability of Net Primary Productivity (NPP) from 1981-2000 derived using observations from NOAA-AVHRR data using GloPEM model. The GloPEM model is based on physiological principles and uses the production efficiency(More)
