The aim of the paper is to analyze the fluorescence characteristics of the neritic water on the Romanian Black Sea coast under anthropogenic influences. A fluorescence LIDAR, based on excimer (308 nm) and a dye laser (367, 460 nm) was used in order to map the Dissolved Organic Matter (DOM) and chlorophyll variations in a marine area. Onboard ship campaign was performed during spring time to evidence the algal blooming. Physicochemical parameters of water and chlorophyll concentration were determined also by laboratory measurements of collected samples. The organic compounds and phytoplankton were characterized based on Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) and Raman scattering. Highly polluted areas were noted and mapped along the ship trajectory.
