Jayaraman, R (1951) Observations on the chemistry of the waters of the Bay of Bengal off Madras city during 1948-1949. Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences , 33 B (2). pp. 92-99.
The study of the fundamental problem of the productivity of the sea involves knowledge of the composition of the sea water, particularly with reference to those inorganic compounds which form a valuable link in the food chain of life in the sea. The most important among these are th~ compounds of phosphorus, nitrogen and silicon. Studies on the distribution and seasoml varia tion of these compounds, commonly referred to as 'nutrients', form an essential preliminary to a more detailed biological investigation of the sea.
