The desirability of routinely measuring the quality of natural waters has increased with increasing sources of industrial and domestic pollutants. Clearly it would be advantageous to monitor water quality remotely; thus avoiding the time consuming and limited usefullness of hand sampling. Before water quality measurements can be made from data collected remotely from infrared systems the characteristic manner in which solutes in water reflect electromagnetic radiation must be known. In this research project the authors have determined the characteristic way in which some solutes and oil reflect infrared radiation. The research is a part of a larger goal to monitor water quality remotely.
