This report summarizes data obtained during summer, 1962 on suspended solids profiles at Hog House Bar (Rappahannock, directly out from Urbanna Creek to 30 ft depth), the productivity buoy (York, 30 ft) and Wreck Shoal (James, adjacent to buoy 12 at edge of channel, 30 ft). Water samples obtained the same day from the three stations at s, 2 (ft), 61 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, B were analyzed for total, organic and inorganic seston by the gravimetric procedure described in VIMS Special Scientific Report No. 20 (1961). Temperature, chlorinity and extinction coefficient profiles were recorded, as well as Sand B dissolved oxygen.
