Abstract: An analysis  of salinity, salt budget and diffusion coefficients based on the salinity data of Gauthami Godavari estuary for three different months (Nov. '95 Jan. '96, April '96) representing different seasons has been carried out. Diffusion coefficients vary quite randomly with distance between 90 - 4050 m2/s for consecutive months during Nov. '95 - Jan. '96 and between 10-869 m2/s for Jan. '96 - April. '96. The mean values of diffusion coefficients are found to be 1510 m2/s for consecutive months during Nov. '95 - Jan. '96, 174 m2/s for Jan. '96-April '96 and are attributed to the river run-off. The undulations in diffusion coefficients reflect the topographic features. The estuarine salt budget shows an increase of salt content by 62% from Nov. '95 - Jan. '96 and 32% from Jan. '96 - April.
