Dissolved Organic Carbon — Why It Matters
Thursday, November 14, 2013
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is an important driver of geochemical and ecological processes. It is important for ecosystem function, including drinking water provision. Changes in DOM concentration and chemistry have important ecological and chemical consequences. DOM concentration, composition, flux, and yield observations can aid understanding of watershed processes and river and stream biogeochemistry. Dr. Aiken will present examples from studies of eighteen large North American rivers.
