    SEASONAL VARIATIONS IN PHYSICO-CHEMICAL PARAMETERS IN WATER CHARACTERISTICS OF THENGAITHITTU ESTUARY IN PUDUCHERRY SOUTHEAST COAST OF INDIA
    T Sudhakar*, S Ajmal Khan, P S Lyla, M Victorraj

    Seasonal variations in the physico-chemical characteristics studied in the estuary showed significant changes. The surface water temperature (°C) was found to vary from 35.07±2.54 to 21.54±0.12, rainfall (mm) from 236.93±168.91 to 9.66±16.74, salinity (PSU) from 35.22±0.14 to 7.47±2.63, pH from 8.30±0.03 to 6.86±0.15, dissolved oxygen (DO-ml/l) from 6.18±0.02 to 0.92±0.06 and petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC μg/l) from 14±1.63 to 1.4±0.37. Temperature, salinity and pH decreased during monsoon season, rainfall, DO and PHC levels were higher during this season. The water quality in this estuary was found to have been impaired due to anthropogenic activities.
