Carbon loss and optical property changes during long‐term photochemical and biological degradation of estuarine dissolved organic matter
Terrestrially derived dissolved organic matter (DOM) impacts the optical properties of coastal seawater and affects carbon cycling on a global scale. We studied sequential long-term photochemical andExpand

Role of photoreactions in the formation of biologically labile compounds from dissolved organic matter
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) can be degraded by sunlight into a variety of photoproducts that stimulate the growth and activity of microorganisms in aquatic environments. All biologically labileExpand

Dissolved organic fluorophores in southeastern US coastal waters: correction method for eliminating Rayleigh and Raman scattering peaks in excitation–emission matrices
Abstract Fluorescence-based observations provide useful, sensitive information concerning the nature and distribution of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in coastal and freshwaterExpand

Determination of apparent quantum yield spectra for the formation of biologically labile photoproducts
Quantum yield spectra for the photochemical formation of biologically labile photoproducts from dissolved organic matter (DOM) have not been available previously, although they would greatlyExpand

Synthesis and Evaluation
What has been depicted in the preceding chapters is a portrait of the Hudson River under somewhat haphazard management. Three distinct types of threats to the Hudson ecosystem were at issue,Expand

Biodegradation of riverine dissolved organic carbon in five estuaries of the southeastern United States
The biological turnover of riverine dissolved organic carbon (DOC) discharged into five southeastern United States estuaries was examined in long-term respiration bioassays. Measures of bacterialExpand

Linking a Bacterial Taxon to Sulfur Cycling in the Sea: Studies of the Marine Roseobacter Group
Evidence from culture-independent molecular studies indicate that members of the Roseobacter group are ubiquitous in marine environments, and bacteria in this taxon have now been isolated from andExpand

Oxygen and carbon dioxide mass balance for the estuarine-intertidal marsh complex of five rivers in the southeastern U.S.
We measured dissolved O2 concentrations, pCO2 values, and respiratory rates in five estuaries of the southeastern U.S. in October 1995 and July 1996. In the low-salinity sections of the coastal plainExpand

Terrestrial inputs of organic matter to coastal ecosystems: An intercomparison of chemical characteristics and bioavailability
Dissolved and particulate organic matter (DOM and POM) collected from rivers or groundwater feeding five estuaries along the east and west coasts of the USA were characterized with a variety ofExpand

The role of nitrogen in chromophoric and fluorescent dissolved organic matter formation
Abstract Microbial and photochemical processes affect chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) dynamics in the ocean. Some evidence suggests that dissolved nitrogen plays a role in CDOMExpand
