Dynamics of dissolved organic carbon concentration (DOC) and capacity to absorb light (color) are determined by in-lake and external properties and processes. In this study, the influence of external factors such as rainfall and solar radiation on DOC and color dynamics was assessed for a small forested lake. DOC and absorption coefficients at 440 nm (a440) ranged 4-fold from 0.46 to 1.62 mM and from 3.4 to 14.8 m, respectively. DOC and a440 varied synchronously, but an important percentage of… CONTINUE READING
