Littoral currents in relation to the mud bank formation along the coast of Kerala

P.G. Kurup

Abstract


The mud bank formations in the inshore waters of the Kerala coast influence the shoreline changes along this coast considerably. Studies have shown that converging littoral currents play an important role in the formation of the mud bank south of Alleppey. More laboratory studies and field observations are necessary to arrive at a final explanation to the complex phenomena of mud bank formation.
