The optical properties of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in surface waters are visible from space and observable throughout the water column in real time using in situ sensors. Due to their ease of measurement, CDOM optical properties are used as proxies for the quantity, quality and processing of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in natural waters. This talk will focus upon the use of these optical signatures to provide insight into the cycling of DOM. Examples will include the use of color to estimate quantitative fluxes and the molecular composition of organics in natural waters.
