Characteristics of colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM) in the Western Arctic Ocean: relationships with microbial activities

Abstract : Colored dissolved organic matter (CDOM), a significant fraction of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), plays various roles in physical and biogeochemical processes in natural waters. In the Arctic Ocean, CDOM is abundant because of major input by large rivers. To better understand the processes that drive variations in CDOM, light absorption coefficients of CDOM [aCDOM(λ), m−1] were extensively documented together with temperature, salinity, chlorophyll a, nitrate concentrations, and bacterial production (BP) and abundance (BA) in the Western Arctic Ocean (WAO) from early to late summer as part of the MALINA and the ICESCAPE expeditions. The data set covered contrasting situations, from bloom to post-bloom conditions and from river-influenced to oceanic water masses. While CDOM photobleaching occurred in the surface layer (< 20 m), we observed significantly lower spectral slopes for CDOM absorption spectra (SCDOM) in addition to higher aCDOM(4 4 0) in the layer below (intermediate layer: 30.7
