Abstract: A total of 482 Benthic foraminifera belonging to 23 species have been identified in the sediment samples of Gosthani estuary. The Ammonia beccarii, Anomalina sp., Asterorotalia dentata, Ammonia tepida, Quinquloculina seminulum, Asterorotalia trispinosa, and Elphidium crispum are abundant. Anomalina 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.
