Abstract: The major objective of the first years research has been to investigate the dispersion and assimilation of high dissolved phosphorus concentrations entering Charlotte Harbor, Florida, in the Peace River drainage. A full understanding of the nutrient cycles in the Harbor and the possible effects of the impending development by man will be necessary for the conservation of this valuable marine resource. During the present study, the area was sampled extensively in August 1969, December 1969 and March 1970. The initial period was devoted to an exhaustive sampling program of the entire bay system for salinity, temperature and dissolved phosphorus in surface, bottom water, and interstitial water. The other periods were primarily devoted to concentrated sampling of the Peace River and central portion of the Harbor.
