dc.description.abstract Sediment organic carbon, total nitrogen, total phosphorous and hydrography of the overlying waters of the estuarine region in Mandovi Estuary, Goa, India have been studied. The relationship of carbon and nutrients with sediment characteristics indicated a significant linear variation with clay and silt. The organic carbon varies from 1.04 to 32.77 mg.g sup(-1) and the total nitrogen and total phosphorous varies from 3.81 to 32.71 mg.g sup(-1) and from 0.46 to 6.74 mg.g sup(-1) respectively. A highly significant correlation between the phosphorous and nitrogen in sediments indicated a common source for both. The significant variations of the N/P and C/N and their variations are discussed.
