Paper Abstract

Knowledge the suspension concentration is basic for realisation of the ecological as well as technical purposes in a water area but its direct measurement is difficult. In the paper the authors present the estimation methods of volume suspension concentration in natural waters when the function of dispersion distribution of size parameter is known and unknown and the light attenuation coefficient of the suspended matter is known, too. The measure of the total concentration or the concentration considering only the large suspended particles may be a useful comparative device for different water areas as for the quantitative and statistical structure of the suspended matter in their waters.
