Abstract:

The researcher continues to investigate geographic and seasonal distributions of hydrographic, chemical, and planktological phenomena in the northern, central, and eastern Arabian Sea, including the continental shelf. Occasionally he comments on general oceanographic or ecological principles. The arranging for publication of translations of monographs by Russian-language authors continues. The objectives of this research are as follows 1 to comment on the seeming controversy in ecology of bottom-up versus top down regulation of marine and terrestrial plant communities 2 to study the ventilation of the upper thermocline in the northernmost Arabian Sea by winter convection and 3 to open windows to the Russian oceanographic literature by arranging for publication of translations of monographs by Russian-language authors.
