Abstract
    The sorption of benzene on particulate material occurring naturally in sea water before, during and after a plankton bloom was studied. Sorption was significant, ranging from 4 8 to 28 4 g benzene sorbed per mg of particulate material. The greatest amount of sorption took place during the plankton bloom, when the number of particles was also greatest. At other times the relationships between the amount of benzene sorbed, the amount of particulate material present and the degree of biological activity were not clear.
