Abstract. The production of fluorescent dissolved organic matter (FDOM) produced from phytoplankton and its subsequent degradation both of which occur constantly under diurnal-day time sunlight and by night time dark-microbial processes, influence markedly several biogeochemical processes and functions in aquatic environments and can be feasibly related to global warming (GW). In this work sunlight-mediated high-temperature was shown to accelerate the production of FDOM, but also its complete disappearance over a 24-h diurnal period in July, but not in lower temperature months. In July, extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), an early-state DOM, were produced from phytoplankton in early morning (06:00–09:00), then were degraded into four FDOM components over midday (10:00–15:00), which was followed by simultaneous production and almost complete degradation of FDOM with reformation of EPS during night time (02:00–06:00). Such transformations occurred simultaneously with the fluctuating production of nutrients (NH4+, NO3, NO2, PO43− and dissolved Si), dissolved organic carbon (DOC), dissolved organic nitrogen (DON) and the two isotopes (δ15N and δ18O) of NO3. The FDOM components identified by fluorescence excitation-emission matrix (EEM) spectroscopy combined with parallel factor (PARAFAC) analysis consisted of EPS, autochthonous humic-like substances (AHLS) of C and M types distinctly, a combined form of C and M types of AHLS, protein-like substances (PLS), newly-released PLS, tryptophan-like substances (TLS), tyrosine-like substances (TYLS), a combined form of TYLS and phenylalanine-like substances (PALS), as well as their degradation products. Finally, stepwise degradation and production processes are synthesized in a pathway for FDOM components production and their subsequent transformation under different diurnal temperature conditions, which provided a broader paradigm for future impacts on GW-mediated DOM dynamics in lake water.
