Seasonal variation of the salinity in the Zuari estuary, Goa
(Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, 1987)
The annual salt budget of the Zuari is examined. The characteristics of the estuary differ markedly from the low run off season during November - May to the heavy run off period of the southwest monsoon from June to October. ...
Distribution of nutrients in the coastal and estuarine waters of Goa
(Indian Association for Limnology and Oceanography, 1987)
Concentrations of nitrate and phosphate in the coastal waters of Goa varied from 0 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 and from 0.1 to 2.4 mu g at 1-1 respectively, during post and premonsoon periods. In the estuarine region the nutrients ...
Estuarine characteristics of the lower reaches of the River Periyar (Cochin backwater)
Lower reaches of river Periyar were studied to assess longitudinal extent of salt water intrusion into the system during different seasons and also its effect on the flushing of pollutants introduced by the industries. ...
Variations of dissolved oxygen in Mandovi and Zuari estuaries
During non-monsoon months the estuaries were well mixed showing uniform oxygen concentrations from surface to bottom. However, during monsoon months both the estuaries showed stratified conditions with surface water showing ...
Benthic Studies in Goa Estuaries. Part 3. Annual Cycle of Macrofaunal Distribution, Production and Trophic Relations
Macrobenthos in Mandovi, Cumbarjua canal and Zuari estuaries, a physically interconnected tropical estuarine system which undergoes large seasonal changes in salinity distribution due to heavy monsoonal precipitation, is ...
Seasonal Variations in Secondary Production of the Mandovi-Zuari Estuarine System of Goa
Mean rates of secondary production in the Mandovi, Zuari and Cumbarjua canal, Goa, India were 16.9, 35.9 and 32.4 mg C/m2/day respectively. The general hydrographic conditions of the Zuari were responsible for the higher ...
