Abstract

An attempt has been made to study the spatial distribution of pH, EC and TDS of ground water of Udupi district, Karnataka State, India during pre monsoon and post monsoon seasons. The mean value of pH in the ground water varies from 6.7 in the pre monsoon to 5.8 in the post monsoon. The ground water is slightly acidic in nature during post monsoon season. The EC values range from 22.1 μmhos/cm in the hinterland area to maximum of 10650 μmhos/cm in coastal area during pre monsoon season. The TDS values range from 12.6 mg/L to as high as 5934 mg/L in some regions of coastal area. In general most of the study area has good quality of ground water for domestic and agricultural practices which can be seen from the thematic maps presented. Copyright © Enviromedia
