from the introduction, "Between 1971 and 1973, we made opportunistic measurements of the concentrations of total suspended solids at a series of stations along the axis of the Potomac River estuary. For a twelvemonth period, January 1971 - February 1972, we also made daily observations of the concentration of total suspended solids at the Woodrow Wilson (Highway 495) Bridge which spans the Potomac River just below Washington, D.C. The sampling depth -- 2. 5 m -- at the bridge was fixed by the available pump intake. Because neither sampling program was directly supported, we had little control over the frequency of sampling in time or space. The primary purpose of this report is to summarize our suspended solids observations to tabular and graphical forms. . . "
