F.P. DeSouza, V.N.K. Dalal

Abstract



An assessment has been made of effects of mixing processes on distribution of fluoride in Mandovi and Zuari estuaries (Goa, India). Percentage of seawater and freshwater in the estuaries has been calculated on the basis of fluoride levels in water; these values agree with those obtained from determinations of water salinity. The data obtained are in accordance with the nature of fluoride as a conservative constituent of seawater
