Fluorescence spectroscopy is a very promising tool for the identification of organic substance fingerprints in water resource systems. It is rapid, sensitive and relatively inexpensive. Knowledge gaps and challenging interpretation of large and complex datasets are currently hindering the full exploitation of its potential. Within this project, we aim to develop and test a novel systemic approach coupled with Bayesian statistical techniques to overcome existing obstacles. We will explore different applications of this tool in different water systems in Austria.
