Abstract: Drift bottle and dye discharge studies from a jetty at a point 180 m (A) away from the shore showed that the discharges moved shoreward and breaking waves appeared to be the dominant factor affecting water movement. Similar studies at 270 (B) and 320 m (C) from the shore showed that wind and wind driven currents were the factors affecting water movement. Detailed observations at B showed it to be the most suitable location for the discharge of radioactive effluents. Studies on vertical distribution of density showed density stratification during the rainy season. Density stratification is likely to be strengthened with warm water discharges. The values of central, calculated using a given model and dilution availability during the rainy season were shown to be half of those available during the other seasons.
