The present study was carried out to determine the physicochemical characteristics of water and sediment and the textural aspects of sediments in western mangroves of Kachchh-Gujarat, west coast of India, for a period of two years during 1999-2000. Surface water and sediment temperatures varied from 17 degrees C to 37 degrees C and from 18.4 degrees C to 37 degrees C respectively. Tidal amplitude varied from 0.03 m to 3.78 m. Salinity varied from 34.0 to 44 per thousand and the pH in water and… CONTINUE READING
