Data on nutrients and suspended matter concentrations of the river Rhone have been collected twice a month during 1984 and 1985. Good correlations were shown to exist between particulate phosphate, nitrogen and carbon and flow rate of the Rhone; a weaker one was found between dissolved phosphate and flow rate, while no relation existed between dissolved nitrogen and flow rate. Granulometric analyses were done on the suspended matter collected from the Rhone water once a month, from February to May 1985. The percentages of clay and fine silt were the highest among the different grain sizes.
