The influence of temperature variations on the determined concentrations of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in water was investigated by laser induced fluorescence (LIF) technique in laboratory. The effect of temperature on CDOM fluorescence was investigated in freshwaters of Xixi River and in aqueous standards. The total luminescence spectra (TLS) of CDOM in several types of water samples with laser-induced fluorescence (LIF) measurements using a 405 nm wavelength excitation source were measured in the laboratory. A temperature calibration equation was derived to standardize CDOM fluorescence measurements to a specific reference temperature. Laboratory experiments with a portable LIF LiDAR showed that CDOM fluorescence intensity decreased as ambient water temperature increased. High correlation (R2=0.91) was observed between concentration of CDOM and fluorescence normalized to water Raman scattering with the temperature calibration method. The results demonstrated that temperature calibration is a necessary and important aspect of CDOM monitoring using in situ fluorescence sensors.
