Abstract
Instantaneous amounts of organic carbon, both particulate and dissolved, in a number of freshwaters ranging from unproductive tarns to moderately productive reservoirs were measured by acid-persulfate digestion and infrared absorption. Organic carbon was designated as net seston carbon, filter seston carbon, or dissolved carbon based on filtering techniques. Repeated sampling showed amounts of organic carbon, either dissolved or particulate, fluctuated considerably over short periods of time; the dissolved fraction probably varying less than particulate forms. Almost daily measurements in samples incubated over three week periods also revealed erratic changes, with no clear reduction in total organic carbon. The data have descriptive value, although they cannot, at this time, be related satisfactorily to the general limnological knowledge.
