Abstract

A comprehensive chemical analysis study was conducted to assess the sediment properties of two important fresh water bodies: beels (Hilna beel and Beel Kumari beel) of Rajshahi division, Bangladesh from July 2007 to June 2008. Average pH, organic matter, organic carbon, total nitrogen, phosphorus, available sulphur, zinc, and potassium of the bottom sediment were 6.33±0.431, 1.426±0.642%, 0.83±0.372%, 0.082±0.027%, 11.92±4.014 ppm, 24.05±7.85 ppm, 1.95±0.449 ppm and 0.404±0.14 me 100g-1 in Hilna beel and 6.78±0.684, 1.338±0.504%, 0.78±0.292%, 0.068±0.02%, 16.02±3.548 ppm, 22.17±7.24 ppm, 1.64±0.804 ppm and 0.39±0.121 me 100g-1 in Beel Kumari beel, respectively. The chemical parameters obtained from this study except pH of soil of both beels were within the preferable range and were average productive. The study underlines the baseline information for better understanding the sediment chemistry and productivity of these commercially important freshwater resources of Bangladesh.
