Abstract: <span style="font-size:9.0pt;mso-bidi-font-size:11.0pt" lang="EN-GB">A total of 482 Benthic foraminifera belonging to 23 species have been identified in the sediment samples of Gosthani estuary. The<i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal"> Ammonia beccarii, Anomalina </i>sp.<i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">, Asterorotalia dentata, Ammonia tepida, <span style="mso-bidi-font-style:italic">Quinquloculina seminulum, Asterorotalia trispinosa, </span></i>and<i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal"> <span style="mso-bidi-font-style:italic">Elphidium crispum<span style="mso-bidi-font-weight:bold"> </span></span></i>are abundant<i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">. Anomalina</i> sp., represent the shelf environment and it is a good indication of flooding or marine water incursion into the estuary. Q-mode cluster analysis revealed that the foraminifera could be grouped into 6 clusters. Occurrence and distribution of foraminiferal assemblages studied in the Gosthani estuary sediments, infers that these sediments were deposited in marine environment. </span>
