Abstract:

An intensive study was made of the suspended sediment of the northern Chesapeake Bay from 21 March 1966 through 31 March 1967. Samples were collected routinely at 16 stations for determinations of both the concentrations of total suspended solids and the concentrations of combustible organic matter. At selected stations samples were collected for mineral identification by X-ray diffraction and for size analysis both by a photomicrographic technique and by sedimentation. Author
