The Periodic Cycle of Particulate Matter in a Shallow, Temperate Estuary

Franz E. Anderson


The concentration of particulate matter in the Bellamy River estuary, New Hampshire has been observed to be strongly periodic over tidal cycles in the spring and early summer months and weakly periodic or aperiodic during the rest of the year. The variation in periodicity appears to be a function of changing estuarine circulation patterns with river discharge, and the protection of the tidal flat by ice and slush during the winter months.
