Surekha N. Dhumal, Anjali B. Sabale

Abstract :

Analysis of the physico–chemical parameters of five estuaries from Sindhudurg district was carried out during the post monsoon season (December, 2012), with respect to temperature, EC, pH, DO, alkalinity, hardness, salinity, TDS, nitrate and phosphate content. During the study period dissolved oxygen and nutrients content was high at different estuaries. Pigment concentration did not exhibit much variation among selected water bodies. Physico–chemical status of the coastal waters under investigation was found normal.
