NETLAKE STSM to Lammi Biological Station, Univeristy of Hensinki, host Prof. Lauri Arvola.

The purpose of this STSM was to write a review on the use of optical measurements for the management of dissolved organic carbon, including fluorescence and absorbance methods, with a focus on the limitations of current practice. The work included a literature study and data analysis on UV-absorption datasets collated following a call to NETLAKE members. The correlation and comparison of the optical measurements with the DOC measurements will be carried out using principle component analysis, correlation calculations, cluster analysis, and trend analysis.
