CDOM and FDOM full-depth Nisken profiles from high-resolution surveys of DOM optical properties conducted during the R/V Melville cruise MV1310 in the Gulf of Alaska (August 4–21, 2013).  CDOM and FDOM (w/5 EEMS/PARAFAC components).

This dataset page provides data access for optical data in a data table with select wavelengths and specific calculations.  Text files containing each CDOM spectra for every scan used in the optical data table calculations are available in a zip file in the "Data Files" section on this page. [Note 2020-08-17, access to optical data table is pending]

CDOM = colored dissolved organic matter
FDOM = fluorescent dissolved organic matter
EEMS = excitation-emission matrix spectrum 
PARAFAC = parallel factor analysis
