The dissolved organic components of marine waters were studied using an inverse flow glass filter system to separate the particulate and dissolved constituents. Cell rupture was prevented by the use of a gentle positive hydraulic head. Concentrations of humic acids were obtained by a nylon adsorption column which also desalted the sample. The process provided concentrations up to 10,000 times. Paper chromatography and ultra-violet spectrometry were used to characterize the dissolved humic content of water from Monterey Bay and offshore ocean stations. The correlations between sources indicated the relative importance of organic acids, amino acids, phenols, and carbohydrates in sewage outfalls, kelpbeds, harbor areas, river mouths, rip currents and industrial discharges.
