Mangroves, BOD, COD, physicochemical factors, analysis.

Mangroves are the fragile and highly productive ecosystem occurring along the coastal belt of our country. The water analyses revealed that the pH was high during the summer and was found to be low during the winter season. The BOD was also showed the same pattern. The Co2 status was negligible. The total hardness was high during the summer season and showed decline trend during the winter season. The heavy metals and the trace elements were found to be trace throughout the study period. The analyses revealed that the physico chemical factors showed significant variation between the seasons.
