Author(s): Dhinamala K, Pushpalatha M, Samuel T, Raveen R

Abstract: Seasonal variation in the distribution of nutrients in the surface waters of Pulicat lake, Tamil Nadu, India was assessed from January 2011 to December 2012. The nutrients investigated were nitrate, nitrite, free ammonia, phosphate, sulphate and silica. Data revealed that the amount of nitrate was high during pre monsoon and low during monsoon during the study period. Nitrite content was found to be high during pre monsoon and post monsoon in 2011 and 2012 respectively. High values of free ammonia were recorded during summer in both the years and low values during pre monsoon and post monsoon in 2011 and 2012 respectively. High concentrations of inorganic phosphate were recorded during pre monsoon and low phosphate during summer, post monsoon and monsoon. Minimum sulphate values were observed during post and pre monsoon whereas maximum values were recorded during pre monsoon and summer in both the years. Silica content in the study area showed maximum values during post monsoon and monsoon in 2011 and 2012 respectively and low values were recorded during pre and post monsoon in 2011 and 2012 respectively.
