Abstract

This study is an attempt to examine the textural and compositional characteristics of sediments along the entire coast of Gulf of Kachchh for understanding their pathways and accomadation within different landforms along the Gulf of Kachchh coast, in response to the active coastal dynamics observed in the offshore. Results and discussion about the 2 major sources of theses sediments : the Indus river and the hinterland. The coast betwen Mandvi and Mundra is acting as a transition zone for the sandy coast to its west and mud-dominated coast to its east. The coastal segment between Mundra and Vadinar acts as a prominent sink for suspended sediments
