Coastal and nearshore circulation off Mangalore

A.D. Gouveia, V.V.R. Varadachari

Abstract



Studies on currents off Mangalore (west coast of India) showed a strong tidal influence very near the shore which decreased with increasing distance from the shore. At 2 km and further offshore, the onshore component of the current was mostly absent and the currents showed some seasonal variation. The implications of these findings in relation to the disposal of any industrial effluent discharged in the area, have been discussed
