Estuarine response of fluoride - Investigations in Azhikode Estuary
MetadataShow full item record
Concentrations of fluoride in Azhikode estuarine region (Kerala, India) were measured as a function of chlorinity during the different seasons. The type of behaviour indicated that fluoride was regulated by sea water incursion alone. Fluoride behaved conservatively during the postmonsoon season. However, during the premonsoon season 25% removal of fluoride was observed due to estuarine mixing. The possible mechanisms for the removal are explained.
