dc.description.abstract The probable movement and mixing of contaminants within and through the Amba river estuary, a tidal estuary along the westcoast of India are studied Neutrally buoyant bipelane drogues, floats and dye were tracked at different stages of the tide for the qualitative assessment of the flow pattern and possible behaviour of the contaminants released in the estuary The studies have shown that contaminants if released in the inner estuary tend to accumulate in the upstream and would not be flushed out effectively The region downstream of Dharamtar experienced larger tidal displacements with wider float trajectories revealing better dispersion and transport over a larger area
