Water quality data from Mormugao harbour area at the mouth of Zuari estuary in Goa have been obtained over two tidal cycles monthly for the year 2003 to 2004. R-mode factor analyses of the data indicated strong positive loadings of coliforms, nitrogenous substances, PHc and some heavy metals during post-monsoon, suggesting their dominance and significant increase relative to other seasons. Water quality index (WQI) studies showed overall index of pollution (OIP) values of 1.41 to 3.52… CONTINUE READING
