  1. 1)TDS - Total Dissolved Solids.
  2. 2)EC - Electric Conductivity.
  3. 3)DO - Dissolved Oxygen.
  4. Salinity, TDS, EC, temperature, and DO were measured as parts per thousand (ppt), parts per million (PPM), millisemen/centimeter (mS/cm), centigrade (°C) and milligram/litre (mg/L), respectively.
