Dissolved Organic Matter is biochemically resistant organic matter providing a source for: nutrient regeneration, ion exchange capacity, and light and heat absorption.
Hansell and Carlson have assembled a team of international experts to produce the definitive, authoritative reference work on the chemistry and ecology of marine DOM. Anyone requiring a key to the literature of marine organic geochemistry and contemporary DOM research should have this volume within easy reach! --Donald L. Rice, Chemical Oceanography Program, National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia, U.S.A. "...essential reading and a valuable reference book for marine scientists from a wide number of disciplineschemists, microbiologists and specialists in optics of natural waters. Hansell and Carlson are to be congratulated for their vision of the structure of the book and its timing, and the authors for thoroughness of coverage in the chapters. --Peter J. LeB. Williams, School of Ocean Sciences, University of Wales, Bangor, U.K. "This book is both an excellent textbook for students wishing to study the biogeochemical role of DOM in the oceans, as well as an outstanding reference text for researchers wishing to consult a well-written, well-edited text that is both informative and interesting...I am sure that many of the chapters will soon become essential reading for many oceanography and biogeochemistry courses." --Emma J. Rochelle-Newall, Laboratoire d'Oceanographie de Villefranche sur Mer EGS Newsletter, 31-January 2003
