Abstract: To monitor suspended particles (seston) in the ocean in conjunction with optical properties, we have developed an instrument to sample water with seston in situ at a steady rate for several days. The results of calibration tests and field deployments are described. The major limits on accuracy appear to be set by reactions in the sample bag after collection.
