Abstract: Flushing time scales of the Azhikode estuary showed pronounced dry season and wet season signals as well as large inter-annual variation. Cumulative flushing time of the estuary varies from 4.8 tide cycles in April to 1.22 tide cycles in August. Longitudinal eddy diffusion which is a measure of pollution dispersion lies between 2 x 106 cm 2 s-1 in January and 42 x 106 cm 2 s-1 in August.
