Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM) data gathered onboard Indian Remote Sensing satellite (IRS P4), in eight VNIR bands covering Gulf of Kutch and adjoining regions were digitally processed using an image processing system. False colour composite images of actual data and principal components were generated to study sediment transport, depth variation and associated processes by mapping coastal and underwater geomorphic features and suspended sediment plumes. Submerged shoals, located as deep as 20 m… 

Sediment concentration and bed form structures of Gulf of Cambay from remote sensing

The continental shelf on the west coast of India is the widest off Mumbai and leads to a strongly converging channel, the Gulf of Cambay (GoC). Tides in this Gulf are the largest on the Indian coast.

Modeling and remote sensing of suspended sediments in the Gulf of Kachchh, India

Abstract This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of OCEANSAT-1 OCM (Ocean Color Monitor)-derived suspended sediment concentration (SSC), MIKE 21-simulated SSC, bathymetry, and tidal current

Sediment Characteristics of Tidal Deposits at Mandvi, Gulf of Kuchchh, Gujarat, India: Geophysical, Textural and Mineralogical Attributes

The textural and mineralogical characteristics of subsurface sediments along with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data collected along the Western margin of India were used to understand the

Geomorphological study of intertidal mudflats using RISAT-1 SAR images

ABSTRACT The coastal zone of the Gulf of Kachchh (GoK) is well known for their large tidal range and a vast expanse of intertidal mudflats. Since monitoring of the intertidal mudflats with field

Simulation of suspended sediment transport initialized with satellite derived suspended sediment concentrations

Suspended sediment transport in the Gulf of Kachchh is simulated utilizing the suspended sediment concentration (SSC) derived from Oceansat OCM imagery, as the initial condition in MIKE-21 Mud

Application of GPR in the study of shallow subsurface sedimentary architecture of Modwa spit, Gulf of Kachchh

The coastline constitutes a very sensitive geomorphic domain constantly subjected to dynamic coastal processes. The study of its ever-changing physiography and stratigraphy provides a wealth of

Influence of the macrotidal environment on the source to sink pathways of suspended flux in the Gulf of Kachchh, India: evidence from the Ocean Colour Monitor (IRS‐P4)

A series of tide‐synchronous satellite images, obtained from the Ocean Colour Monitor (OCM) onboard the Indian Remote Sensing Satellite (IRS‐P4), in situ measurements and hydrodynamic model

Understanding the sediment routing system along the Gulf of Kachchh coast, western India: Significance of small ephemeral rivers

The present study is an attempt towards understanding the sediment routing system in the semi-arid margin of the Gulf of Kachchh, which is one of the largest macrotidal regimes in the northern

Digital sensing systems, on board remote sensing satelites, have provided a very powerful tool for conducting earth resources studies using digital computers. This paper mainly describes various

Current Regime in the Gulf of Kutch

Long term in situ current data have been collected for a number of locations in the Gulf of Kutch and analysed. Tides in the area are of mixed type and are predominantly semidiurnal with a large

Micro-fluctuations of temperature and salinity in the Gulf of Kutch

Vertical distributions of temperature and salinity in the Gulf of Kutch show nearly homogeneous conditions in the water column. Though, variations in the vertical distributions with tide are very
