Dissolved organic matter (DOM) is an important component of the total carbon in aquatic ecosystems. DOM composition is also a factor in the chemical reactions of organic matter in the environment. Multiple-wavelength excitation of DOM fluorescence is explored as a means of resolving some of the different general chemical structures of DOM, with the goal of making an estimate of DOM composition, based on the fluorescence properties alone. This laboratory study is aimed at specifying the most appropriate choice of excitation by a two or three wavelength laser fluorosensor.
