Abstract Organic matter is ubiquitous in surface waters and its presence is generally recognized as being detrimental to water quality. This paper is the first part of a study of the distribution of organic carbon in Lake Superior Basin waters. Temporal and spatial distribution of organic carbon in open waters and in the vicinity of pollution inflows are described. Base line concentration levels have been established, and the use of organic carbon measurements as an overall indicator of water quality is discussed.
