|Title:||Hydrochemical constituents in the Alleppey mudbank area, southwest coast of India|

|Abstract:||A monthly survey(1987) was conducted in the mudbank area, for data on temperature, salinity, pH, Eh, dissolved oxygen, dissolved organic carbon, chlorophyll -a, sediment organic matter and trace metal content. The seasonal variability of DO and chlorophyll -a has been highlighted. pH values from these highly productive waters justify the basis of interlinkage to changes in oxygen and carbonate concentrations in the "zone of bio-rhythm". The oxidation of organic compounds reduces the oxygen content of subsurface waters which was predominantly noticed beyond the mid-mudbank region. The decay of organic detritus during the propagation of mudbanks plays a significant role in the turbidity linked processes.|
