Comparative Statistical Analysis of some Hydrobiological Parameters in Upstream and Downstream of River Asan
Keywords:Temperature, Water flow, Turbidity, Conductivity
Today world is facing a number of challenges affecting the availability, accessibility, use and sustainability of its freshwater resources. Water is the most vital resource for living beings because there is no life without water as cellular activities never occur. Water is essential for the socio-economic development of human beings. Industrialization, urbanization, population explosion and green revolution have deteriorated the various sources of water. Keeping these points in mind, this study is designed to comparatively analyze the water quality of river Asan at upstream and downstream sites.
