Abstract: Analysis of current meter data collected in the Cochin estuarine system (southwest coast of India) has been made, to understand variations of currents in the estuary for spring and neap tidal phases during March 2000. The currents were strongest at an interior station as compared to stations close to the mouth of the estuary. The currents were also found to be rectilinear in nature at most of the stations. The observed currents were dominated by tidal signals - spring phase was dominated by semi-diurnal and neap phase by diurnal tidal currents.
