Dissolved organic carbon in the East China Sea in autumn
- 54 Downloads
Dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the East China Sea in autumn was determined using the UV/persulphate method. DOC distribution tended to decrease gradually from northwest to soubeast. DOC concentration varied from 40 μmmol/L to 170 μmmol/L. DOC distribution in the East China Sea is mainly affected by continental input and mixing of water masses. It was found that DOC and salinity in the 32°N section correlated obviously.
