Abstract

A deckmounted non-submersible suspended sediment sampler is described which is capable of reliably extracting several grams of particulate matter from shallow water (0-25 m) in a brief period of time (<1 hr). The pump and filtration apparatus, which collects suspended matter by serial filtration on nylon screens and membrane filters, is relatively inexpensive, and easily accommodated by a small research vessel.
