S. Naik, C.F.M. Dias

Abstract



The distribution of fluoride, calcium and magnesium was studied in the waters off the central west coast of India. The averages F/Cl, Ca/Cl and Mg/Cl ratios observed are (6.83 plus or minus 0.023) x 10(to the power -5), (0.02194 plus or minus 0.00068) and (0.06332 plus or minus 0.0027) respectively. The depthwise variations of fluoride, calcium and magnesium and their ratios to chlorinity have been discussed
