Abstract
Seawater samples were collected monthly in surface waters (2 and 5 m depths) of the Bay of Marseilles (northwestern Mediterranean Sea; 5°17'30" E, 43°14'30" N) during one year from November 2007 to December 2008 and studied for total organic carbon (TOC) as well as chromophoric dissolved organic matter (CDOM) optical properties (absorbance and fluorescence). The annual mean value of surface CDOM absorption coefficient at 350 nm [<i>a</i><sub>CDOM</sub>(350)] was very low (0.10 ± 0.02 m<sup>−1</sup>) in comparison to values usually found in coastal waters, and no significant seasonal trend in <i>a</i><sub>CDOM...
