Photochemical degradation of chromophoric-dissolved organic matter (CDOM) by UV-B radiation decreases CDOM absorption in the UV region and fluorescence intensity, and alters CDOM composition. CDOM absorption, fluorescence, and the spectral slope indicating the CDOM composition were studied using 0.22-μm-filtered samples of Meiliang Bay water from Lake Taihu that were exposed to short-term (0–12 h) simulated UV-B radiation and long-term (0–12 days) natural solar radiation in summer. CDOM… CONTINUE READING
