Summary
Abstract: Sources of Organic Matter in the Chesapeake Bay were determined by
several stations over a one year period. Tables have been created for
various sampling stations in raw tables. Data for selected dates in 1995 and
1996 are summarized in three categories of data. The categories are as
follows:

A: Temperature, Salinity and Density (Sigma) Data Tables
Particulate Organic Carbon, Chlorophyll, and Suspended Particulate

B: Matter Data Tables

C: Dissolved Oxygen Data Tables
