Sumitra, Vijayaraghavan and Joseph, K J and Easterson, D C V and Balachandran, V K (1972) Studies on dissolved carbohydrate content (DCHO) in a tropical estuary. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 14 (2). pp. 864-866.



Variations in dissolved carbohydrate content in the Cochin Backwater over a period of 24 hours have been given. The DCHO was measured at 2-hour intervals. Its maximum concentration was recorded at 1630 hrs and the minimum at 0430 hrs. Carbon assimilation as a percentage of carbon released in DCHO was 45.29 % as determined by the experimental method and 84.11 % by direct sampling method.
