The distribution of dissolved organic matter in the near-shore waters of the Texas coast.
MetadataShow full item record
Dissolved organic matter concentrations in the coastal waters, estuaries, and shelf were measured. Zones of high and low concentration were found on the shelf. Concentrations in the estuaries (2-5.3 mg/L) were higher than those for shelf waters (1-3.7 mg/L). A new analytical method based on persulfate oxidation and gas chromatographic detection was developed.
