A note on the textural variation of beach sediments in the vicinity of Gangavali river mouth near Ankola, West Coast of India

V.C. Chavadi, V.S. Hegde


Sediment samples collected from beaches in the vicinity of Gangavali river mouth over a period of 18 months between September 1985 and February 1987 revealed that the sediments are coarse to fine grained (0.27-2.67 theta), moderate to well sorted (0.03-0.97 theta), coarse (-ve) to fine (+ve) skewed and mesokurtic. The observed variations in textural parameters are both spatial and time dependent and gives signatures of changes in oceanographic conditions.
