Results of the studies on circulation in Velsao Bay and adjoining areas are presented. In the near shore regions of the head of the Bay, strong tidal influence was observed and the tidal variations in currents decreased with increasing distance from the shore. At 2 km and further offshore, the onshore component of the current was mostly absent and the circulation pattern showed some seasonal variations in the coastal current system. The implications of these findings in relations to the dispersal of any pollutants discharged in the area, are discussed.
