Physical characteristics of Chapora estuary

K.K. Varma, T. Cherian


Variation of current, salinity, suspended load and temperature are discussed for three seasons. This part of the estuary is situated in the tidal section of the river in monsoon and could be classified as type 2 corresponding to partially mixed during post and pre-monsoon seasons. Suspended load was maximum during monsoon. A linear dependence of mean attenuation coefficient on suspended load has been observed during post-monsoon season
