Aquatic organic matter is constanatly changing its characteristics under the interaction with different components which enter the water body through soil leaching, surface runoff for pollution. Complex processes also lead to the formation of nitrate. In order to determine the quantity of nitrate and the correlation With dissolved organic matter a continuous monitoring experiment of an urban river has been performed. This study has been conducted by measuring the fluorescence of organic matter and physiochemical parameters. Surface runoff had a great impact on the river water quality triggering after each precipitation event high quantities of nitrate and organic matter.
