dc.description.abstract The total phosphorus content in the sediment samples collected from different stations on the continental shelf along five sections normal to the coast near Bombay, Karwar, Mangalore, Cochin and Alleppey has been determined and the distribution studied. The study reveals that the sediments off the Kerala coast are uniformly rich in phosphorus while those off Karwar and Mangalore are relatively poor with those off Bombay coming in between. The distribution of phosphorus in these sediments has been discussed in relation to upwelling and biological productivity
