Abstract:

The seasonal variations of physico-chemical parameters were studied during January 2009 to December 2010 in the Champavathi estuary (Lat. 18° 01′ N Long. 83° 56′ E) Northeast coast of India. The atmospheric and water temperature ranged from 26.3±1.42 to 33.2±1.66ºC and 23.2±2.89 and 29.6±0.85ºC respectively. The pH ranged between 7.8±0.65 and 9.1±0.77. The DO was ranged from 3.05±0.73 to 8.94±0.97 ml/l. Salinity fluctuated between 16.62±1.08% and 30.38±1.63%. The rainfall was ranged between 5.5±0.58 and 293.0±0.67. The transparency was fluctuated between 0.31±0.12 and 0.75±0.37.
