Abstract

Some of the physico-chemical parameters like temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, ammonia-nitrogen, nitrite-nitrogen, nitrate-nitrogen, phosphate-phosphorus and silicate-silicon were investigated at the Mulki estuary under under high and low tide conditions during monsoon, post and pre-monsoon periods. pH and salinity increased during high tides while dissolved oxygen trend is independent of tidal effects. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate and silicate increased during low tide. Higher values of all the nutrients during monsoon season suggest the freshwater influx as a vital source of nutrients for the estuary.
