Abstract

Study on water fluxes and suspended solids distribution in the water column of Menggatal estuary, Kota Kinabalu had been conducted on 15th and 16th October 2009 (Sampling 1) and 18th and 19th February 2010 (Sampling 2). This study was conducted to identify total suspended solids, total suspended solids fluxes and water fluxes during high tide and low tide during spring tides. This study was also conducted to measure water parameters such as pH, salinity (psu), dissolved oxygen (mg/l) and temperature °C in the study area. Sampling stations were divided into three area across the width of the estuary. Water samples were collected using water sampler, current velocity and direction data were collected using current meter (Model AEM 213-0) and data for water parameters were collected using Hanna Multiparameter (Model HI 9828). Total suspended solids and suspended solids fluxes was higher during flood tide, as well as total water fluxes. Water parameters are also affected by tides. For Sampling 1, the highest level of total suspended solids, suspended solids flux and water fluxes was 0.0431 g/l, 0.233 kg/m2/s and 213.36 m3/s respectively. The highest level of pH, salinity, dissolved oxygen and temperature recorded at the study area were 8.41, 31.11 psu, 5.46 mg/l and 31.58°C respectively. For Sampling 2, the highest level of total suspended solids, suspended solids fluxes and water fluxes was 0.443 g/l, 0.222 kg/m2/s and 173.11 m3/s respectively. The highest level of pH, salinity, dissolved oxygen and temperature recorded was 8.41,28.80 psu, 6.38 mg/l and 30.86 °C respectively.
