Title: Marine geology and oceanography of Arabian Sea and coastal Pakistan

Abstract

This volume is a collection of papers presented at the first US-Pakistan workshop in marine science held in Karachi, Pakistan, in November 1982. Of the twenty-four contributions in this book, fourteen cover topics specific to the Arabian Sea-coastal Pakistan region. These include six papers on the geology, tectonics, and petroleum potential of Pakistan, four papers on sedimentary processes in the Indus River delta-fan complex, and four papers on the biological oceanography of the Arabian Sea and coastal Pakistan. The additional ten papers are overviews of shelf sedimentation processes, paleoceanography, the marine nutrient cycle, and physical and chemical oceanography.

  • Hearings were conducted to examine the potential sources of energy from the ocean, focusing first on OTEC. Witnesses were from government, industry, and academia, testifying that OTEC is the most promising and the most advanced of all ocean energy technologies. An additional session examined ocean biomass conversion. The text of H.R. 6154 is presented and testimony of witnesses at hearings on the bill is presented. (MCW)
  • This book provides a treatment of both theoretical and observational aspects of the interaction between the sea-floor and the near-sea-floor dynamics; the effect this has on the distribution of internal and seabed stress; and the relevance of the associated dynamics to sedimentation processes. The theoretical work described involves both analytical and numerical modelling studies of a wide range of near-shore and shelf processes. These provide information on the interaction between the sea-floor and the dynamics of the overlying water. The book also includes an account of tidal analysis techniques and how these are being applied in the analysis of tidalmore » current measurements. The observational studies relate to measurements of near sea-floor turbulence and sand-transport in the littoral zone.« less
  • This book provides a thought-provoking, succinct presentation of the geologic evolution and hydrocarbon potential of the world's most prolific petroleum province. The fascinating subjects discussed and documented include: What are the unique geologic factors that make the Middle East such a prolific province Where are the future Mesozoic and Tertiary plays What is the virtually untapped potential of the Paleozoic section What are the play potentials for underexplored areas such as Jordan, Syria, Yemen How are deeper drilling results shaping and modifying concepts of the Arabian plate history and pointing the way to future hydrocarbon targets
  • This series has the following objects: to consider annually basic aspects of marine research, returning to each in future volumes at appropriate intervals; to deal with subjects of special and topical interest; and to add new ones as they arise. Contents: Phytoplankton dynamics in marginal ice zones. Sampling and description of spatial pattern in marine ecology. Flumes: theoretical and experimental considerations for simulation of benthic environments. Larval settlement of soft-sediment invertebrates: the spatial scales of Pattern explained by active habitat selection and the emerging role of hydrodynamic processes. Aplysia: its biology and ecology. A review of the comparative anatomy ofmore » the males of Cirripedes. The Benguela ecosystem: part IV: the major fish and invertebrate resources.« less
  • Representatives from the EPA, environmental agencies, and fishery personnel were among those testifying at a hearing on marine protection issues. An attempt was made to characterize the environmental problems in coastal waters and to provide the foundation necessary to consider appropriate measures to respond to these problems. Witnesses agreed that coastal waters face significant environmental problems. The growing evidence of decline in the quality of coastal water is especially troubling in light of the tremendous environmental and economic value of this marine resource. The mechanics of the Marine Research Act of 1988 was evaluated. The bill provides general authority tomore » establish 10 multi-state regional marine research centers. The basic objective of the marine research centers will be to support and coordinate marine research at the regional level.« less
