Abstract

Observations were made cm salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, phosphate, nitrate, nitrite and silicate of the inshore surface waters of the Madras coast, from September 1967 to July 1970. The changes observed in salinity follow a pattern without much variations from year to year. The surface layers are rich in dissolved oxygen and the pH remains around 8.4 throughout. The fluctuations of phosphate, nitrate and nitrite show almost similar trends and those of silicate exhibit an inverse relationship to changes in salinity.
