Proceedings include 19 papers examining the problems of sampling and concentrating suspended materials and of in situ instrumentation. The contributors delineate the results of nearshore and offshore studies, including the effect of tropical storm Agnes on suspended solids in the northern Chesapeake Bay and turbidity distribution in the deep water of the Western Atlantic Trough. There are also thorough treatments of principles underlying the study of settling velocities of suspended materials and of theories of various optical techniques employed in this research.
