Abstract

In the coastal waters of Kalpakkam, a water body characterized by high salinity, rich nutrients and low temperature (southern-sub surface water SSW) was seen during the early half of September when the pole-ward current prevailed. This was replaced by low saline, low nutrient and relatively high temperature water (northern-surf;tce water NSW) during early October when thecurrent was equator-ward, This reversal in current direction is induced bythe north-east monsoon winds during the SW to NE monsoon transition. It isalso observed that SSW in the Kalpakkam coast during the later half of September was characterized by the presence of pennate diatoms Nitzschia closterium, Asterioilella glacialis and Thalassionema nitzschiodes. However, NSWin this coast in early October is characterized by the presence of centricdiatom Skeletonema costatum. The two water bodies also have a characteristic zooplankton population, the SSW is rich in meroplankton and the NSW is poor in meroplankton. Thus, the pennate diatom N. closterium, A. glacialis and T. nitzschiodes would be considered as indicators of SSW and centric diatom S. costatum as the indicator of NSW.
