Field collection of surface and groundwaters across Canada for characterization of dissolved organic matter (DOM). DOM was characterized using UV-visible absorbance, size-exclusion chromatography, and elemental ratios (dissolved organic carbon to dissolved organic nitrogen). Measures were compared in all samples to determine which select measures give us the best representation of DOM composition. These were then used to develop a simple visualization tool (Composition Wheel).
