dc.description.abstract Flushing time scales of the Azhikode Estuary, Kerala, India showed pronounced dry season and wet season signals as well as large inter-annual variation. Cumulative flushing time of the estuary varies from 4.8 tide cycles in April to 1.22 tide cycles in August. Longitudinal eddy diffusion which is a measure of pollution dispersion lies between 2 x 10 sup(6) cm sup(2) s sup(-1) in January and 42 x 10 sup(6) cm sup(2) s sup(-1) in August.
