Abstract: Present study provides a systematic method for delineating the CRZ-VI zone according to the salinity gradient and tidal variation of the Rasalpur estuary, West Bengal, India. The difference in tidal influence with respect to low tide and highest high tide (spring) of the Rasalpur estuary is estimated. About 3.20 km difference was noticed between highest high tide (spring) and low tide salinity boundaries. From the present study, changes in salinity (5.0ppt) boundary line with respect to highest high tide (spring) and low tide were recorded.
