ON THE CONCENTRATION AND SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF PARTICULATE MATTER IN SEA WATER,
NAVY MINE DEFENSE LAB PANAMA CITY FLA
Sea water samples were collected from St. Andrew Bay and from the Gulf of Mexico approximately one mile seaward of the harbor entrance to Panama City, Florida. Surface, mid-depth and near bottom samples were obtained. The samples were filtered through a molecular filter and the amount and size distribution of the particulate matter determined. Using secchi disc data, an attempt was made to correlate the attenuation of light with particulate content. A theoretical sound attenuation coefficient at 1 megacycle was computed based on average particle content for Gulf and Bay waters. Author
