dc.description.abstractThe probable movement and mixing of contaminants within and through the Kundalika river estuary along the west coast of India are studied Neutrally buoyant biplane drogues, floats and dye were tracked at different stages of the tide to assess the behaviour of the contaminants released in the estuary The studies have shown that contaminants if released in the inner estuary trend to accumulate in the upstream regions and would not be flushed out effectively However, downstream regions expressed larger tidal displacements with wider trajectories revealing better dispersion and transport over larger areas
