Abstract

The authors' investigations of humic and fulvic acid fluorescence of various aquatic ecosystems indicate that the dependence of the intensity of fluorescence on the concentrations of humic and fulvic acids differs not only from one water body or watercourse to another, but also in different areas of the same water body whenever the organic matter is derived from several different sources. This paper discusses a type of dependence of the fluorescence and optical characteristics on the identity, structure and composition of the dissolved organic matter that has not previously been described. It proposes approaches for rapid monitoring, including remote monitoring, of organic matter in aquatic ecosystems.
