    Abstract

    The present study is centered around aspects o f microbio-chemical supply and consumption of Oxygen in the Mangalvanam waters in relation to associated environmental characteristics of the biotope located as part in the Cochin backwater system at Emakulam (Kochi) during the southwest postmonsoon (September-December) period o f 1998. Mangalvanam is one of the remnants o f the past mangrove forest o f the Cochin backwater system having connection with the Cochin backwater by way of a narrow feeder canal where water exchange takes place through tidal influence. The dredging operations and reclamation processes carried out by the Greater Cochin Development Authority during 1970-80 along the side o f the Shanmugam road in the Cochin backwater resulted in heavy siltation and accumulation o f sediments in the Mangalvanam water body which has reduced the average depth of the water body from three to one metre; and as such there is no specific map o f the present Mangalvanam with its boundary demarcations although it is declared as the ‘Bird Sanctuary’ and steps have been taken to protect the sanctuary by the Kerala Forest Department.
