A gravimetric method for determining suspended matter in sea water using millipore filters

Author(s): Banse K, Falls C, Hobson L


A modification of earlier methods for the determination of the weight of suspended matter in 0·5 to 51. of sea water is presented. Filter pore size can be selected to meet the requirements of the experiment. The precision is ± 0·15 mg at the 95 per cent level. The material can be subjected to subsequent analysis if the presence of the filter does not interfere.
