Abstract Water samples collected at five stations along 93°E section (1°N–4°S) during the northeast monsoon (12–15 February 2000) at five depths (surface, 50, 100, 150 and 200 m) in the eastern equatorial Indian Ocean (EEIO) were studied for coccolithophores. This study has yielded 30 species of coccospheres, showing more diversity compared to coccoliths represented by only 18 taxa. High diversity and abundance of coccospheres were observed at the equator and at 2°S. High concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
