... of Pliocene deep-sea foraminifera of Car Nicobar, Indian Ocean. A revised generic subdivision of the Stilostomellidae is proposed based primarily on apertural features, and Myllostomella n.gen. described. Traditionally the dark, near-freezing environment of the deep oceans is regarded as one of the most...

... formed potential aquifers. One such valley fill at Beadonabad tested by a 17 m deep well had a discharge of 72 000 L/hour. Limestone formations on Car Nicobar, Katchal, Neil and Havelock islands have shallow aquifers. These are developed by digging 4–5 m diameter wells up to 6 m in depth. Typical yields...

The western part corresponds to a large (120×50 km oval-shaped) bathymetric depression between Little Andaman and Car Nicobar islands. The hinge of the basin lies at the centre of the bathymetric depression, and sediments are tilting towards this centre...
