S.S. Sawant, A.C. Anil, A.B. Wagh


A device developed for studying the bio-ecological processes in an estuary in relation to the tidal flow is described. The deployment of this device could provide continuous and reliable data which will, not only minimize the field trips and economise the cost of the project, but would also help in modelling of the estuarine environment. The results of a trial made in the Mandovi Estuary, Goa, India are also given
