Abstract: Present study deals with the physico-chemical parameters in three main estuaries of Gulf of Khambhat (The Narmada, Mahi and Sabarmati). Parameters like the Dissolved Oxygen, Biological oxygen demand, Salinity, all major nutrients and Petroleum Hydrocarbons have been studied in detail. Comparison between the three estuaries for the nutrient load is discussed in detail. One-way ANOVA suggests the significant difference between the three estuaries which are discussed in detail. The correlation between various parameters is also discussed. It is concluded from the present study that out of the three estuaries Sabarmati estuary is having high and Narmada estuary is least nutrient load.
