Book Description :

The Indian Ocean Nodule Field: Geology and Resource Potential, Second Edition, provides a view of the most recent studies along with classical theories starting from the 1960s. New concepts, hypotheses and critical appreciation of the state-of-the-art knowledge on nodule formation and resource management are featured in this new edition. The economy of the Indian Ocean has vast potential and yet it is one of the least studied oceans. Garnering economic advantage out of mineral resources from deep oceans has been a long cherished dream for the mining community. The availability of 5-metal rich polymetallic (manganese) nodules in specific areas of the Indian Ocean has lured researchers to discover more about their processes of formation, growth, distribution and enrichment. Collates, discusses and succinctly presents voluminous and scattered information from various books and journals for easy understanding and dissemination Features two new chapters: statistical modeling of the formation, growth, distribution and metal enrichment of nodules; and biogeochemistry of the Central Indian Ocean Basin Includes an assessment of Indian Ocean nodules, one of the least studied oceans in comparison to samples analyzed from the world’s oceans

Book Description :

The book includes a synthesis of research findings on the structure and evolution of the Central Indian Ocean Basin and its ferromanganese deposits, in particular, on the exploration campaign since 1980s. A comprehensive mixture of recent studies along with classical theories starting from the 1960s is the hallmark of the book. Recent concepts and hypotheses, and also critical appreciation of the state-of-the-art knowledge on nodule formation and resource management are incorporated. After limiting the geographical extension of the nodule field and describing its physiographic, geological, biological, physical and chemical characteristics in chapter 1, the various structural, tectonic and volcanic elements are described in chapters 2 and 3. The bottom sediment characteristics that floor the nodules and crusts are dealt with in chapter 4. The nodules and crusts are described in detail in chapter 5, and their process of formation in the light of variable source material, local and regional tectonic activities, and midplate secondary volcanisms are discussed. The mining, environment, metallurgy, legal and economic aspects of the nodule resources are discussed in chapter 6. This title fulfils the growing need to bring voluminous, but scattered information in the form of a book for easy dissemination to students and researchers. * First dedicated book on the Indian Ocean manganese nodule resources * Comprehensively discusses the dynamics of nodule formation in the Indian Ocean Nodule Field (IONF) * Independently assesses the influence of tectonics and volcanism on the manganese nodule resource potential in local and regional scales

Book Description :

The economic paradigms currently dominating the world are not sustainable. The threats from climate change, exploitation-based approaches to commerce, and the excess acquisition of resources loom large as well as the possibility of military flare-ups. Maintaining a balance between development and ecosystems, aspirations for growth, and the need for sustainability is a prescient challenge. The Indian Ocean Region (IOR) encompasses some of the poorest countries in the world and those that will bear the brunt of the negative impacts from climate change. This book explores the immense potential of the IOR and how best to maintain sustainable and responsible economic and strategic activities. The combination of science, innovation, and entrepreneurship will create a new blue economy business model, which has the potential to transform society. Based on critical analysis of the model and its practical applications, including risks as well as opportunities, the topics discussed range from food security, energy, and resilience to climate change, trade and investments, and improved maritime connectivity to tourism, poverty alleviation, and socioeconomic growth, encompassing a wide range of interests and expertise. FEATURES Examines the geo-politics, geo-resources, and geo-hazards of the IOR and identifies opportunities and methods to achieve success Covers a detailed assessment of available resources (fisheries, minerals, energy), threats such as pollution (plastic, acoustic, carbon, bio-invasion), geo-politics (maritime security, military invasion), and strategic vision (determining carrying capacity, ethical governance, and responsible ecosystem) of the Indian Ocean Analyzes the economics of the blue economy, the global scenario including the Pacific and Caribbean islands, and the aspect of the Chinese geo-political invasion in the Indian Ocean Inspires entrepreneurs to adopt new ways of creating economic benefits, reducing energy use, and increasing revenue while simultaneously helping the communities involved Discusses the threat and security perspectives of the IOR and the collective responsibility for a sustainable use of resources Crossing a wide range of interests and expertise, this book explores topics and ideas that will be essential to researchers and professionals in marine sciences, economics, business, geography, and political sciences. Graduate students in the same fields as well as any and all organizations that maintain a presence in the IOR will likewise find this book to be a valuable resource.

Book Description :

The Indian Ocean: Basics of Marine Geology, Physics and Chemistry begins with a short introduction to the and origin of water and formation of oceans on Earth. This is followed by the history of Oceanography / Marine Sciences, including international and Indian scenarios. In subsequent chapters marine instruments, sampling equipment, coastal features, offshore and deep-sea feature, and structures are discussed. Oceanic volcanism, formation of different rocks and geotectonics (continental drift, plate tectonics, seafloor spreading) are detailed, as these play important roles in the evolution of Earth. Sediments of the coasts and deep sea are presented in terms of their classifications, granulometry, chemical compositions and other parameters. The properties of sea water, oceanic circulation and cycling of nutrients form the crux of physical oceanography. The Indian Ocean: Basics of Marine Geology, Physics and Chemistry includes a chapter on the biology of the oceans, and their importance to sediment formation and palaeoceanography form another chapter. A chapter on mineral wealth of the coasts (near- and off-shore) and deep sea is included and contains beach sands, placer deposits, polymetallic nodules, phosphorites, hydrothermal polymetallic sulphides. In addition, the economics of mining these deposits are covered. Information related to harnessing various energies from the sea such as from tides, waves, currents and winds are incorporated. The Indian Ocean also deals with the important aspects of territorial waters, exclusive economic zones and coastal regulation zones together with international maritime laws, rules and regulations. A chapter pertaining to blue economy and green technology of the oceans are also presented. The highlight of the book is the inclusion of details, examples and photographs from Indian coasts and neighboring seas (especially Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal) and the Indian Ocean. Presents the Indian Ocean in the context of global ocean circulation and climate Includes a modern, comprehensive, coherent treatment of the Indian Ocean's physical, chemical and biological oceanography Provides examples and case studies related to India, that can also be applied elsewhere
