Speciation study on zinc have been camed out over a period of one year in the Rushikulya Estuary, Bay of Bengal. The percentage of dissolved and particulate fractions of zinc showed significant variations in different seasons because of their involvement in the biogeochemical cycles. The transport processes of 'these fractions of zinc into the estuary have been explained on the basis of adsorptioddesorption mechanisms using theoretical dilution line (TDL).
