Abstract : The distribution of suspended particulate matter in Monterey Bay, California, was characterized by the ratio of light scattering at 45 degrees to that at 135 degrees, by particle volume distributions, and by constituent distributions. X-ray methods were used to identify the mineral constituents. Distributions were highly variable with time and locations. Although high scattering ratios and high volume distributions were found in the same vicinity, there appeared to be a lack of correlation between their absolute values. Scattering ratios were found to vary greatly with depth. (Author)
