Summary: Planktonic foraminifer abundances, fluxes, test sizes, and coiling properties are influenced in various ways by the south-west monsoon winds and associated upwelling in the western Arabian Sea. The influence of monsoon driven upwelling on the planktonic foraminifer species abundances, coiling directions of Globigeriroides bulloides and Neogloboquadrina pachyderma and size variations of selected planktonic foraminifer species and carbon isotopic composition of Globigerina bulloides is summarized here.
