Description 
Summary

The data set contains a value for the momentary sediment (particles finer than 63 microns) concentration at one metre water depth. The value is established on the basis of simultaneously obtained sea water samples and digital airborne multispectral scanner registrations. The method guarantees a fast coverage of large areas. Surveys were performed in the following situations: 1) Low Water (4 September 1987); 2) High Water (8 April 1989); 3) at 5 successive stages in the tidal cycle (10 July 91).
