Characterising the nature, origins and ecological significance of dissolved organic matter in freshwater ecosystems
Field Monitoring and Sampling
The origins, nature and metabolic pathways controlling the impact of dissolved organic matter (DOM) on aquatic ecosystem and human health are poorly understood, undermining our ability to develop appropriate policy and planning to bring adverse effects under control. The DOMAINE project, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) aims to assess the origins and rates of Dissolved Organic Carbon (DOC), Dissolved Organic Nitrogen (DON) and Dissolved Organic Phosphorus (DOP) flux to aquatic ecosystems from the surrounding landscape.
