  • Indian estuaries have special features that are derived from occurrence of the wet Indian Summer Monsoon (JuneSeptember) and hence have been called monsoonal estuaries. High runoff during the wet season and a 8-month long dry season with tittle runoff lead to striking temporal changes in salinity and velocity fields in these estuaries. A Number of habitats that have adapted to such changes are found in the estuaries. The Climate Change will have an adverse impact on the habitats. So will local… CONTINUE READING
