Processing Steps
  • Parameter or Variable: Dissolved Inorganic Carbon; Abbreviation: DIC; Observation type: discrete; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: In-situ observation; Measured or calculated: Calculated; Replicate information: Duplicate pairs tripped at the maximal depth throughout the cruise show a mean difference of 0.1 +/- 2.1 ╬╝mol/kg (n = 93).; Standardization description: The coulometers were each calibrated by injecting aliquots of pure CO2 (99.995%) by means of an 8-port valve outfitted with two sample loops. The loop volumes were calibrated at BNL (Wilke, 1993) prior to, and following, the cruise, and no significant difference was found between the pre- and post-cruise calibrations.; CRM batch number: 12.
  • Parameter or Variable: Total alkalinity; Abbreviation: TA; Observation type: discrete; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: In-situ observation; Measured or calculated: Measured; Type of titration: Single point titration; Cell type (open or closed): Closed; Curve fitting method: The TAlk titration system was similar to the one used in previous studies (Thurmond and Millero, 1982; Bradshaw and Brewer, 1988) and consisted of a Metrohm 665 DosimatJ titrator and an Orion 720A pH meter operated by a personal computer. The titration was made by adding HCl to seawater past the carbonic acid end point. A typical titration records the emf reading after it becomes stable (0.09 mV) and adds enough acid to change the voltage by a pre-assigned increment (13 mV). The electrodes used to measure emf consisted of a ROSSJ glass pH electrode and an OrionJ double junction Ag/AgCl reference electrode.; Method reference: Thurmond, V.L., and F.J. Millero (1982): The ionization of carbonic acid in sodium chloride solutions at 25C. J. Solution Chem., 11, 447B11,456. Bradshaw, A.L., and P.G. Brewer (1988): High precision measurements of alkalinity and total carbon dioxide in seawater by potentiometric titration. Presence of unknown protolyte(s)? Mar. Chem., 23, 69B86..
  • Parameter or Variable: pH; Abbreviation: pH; pH scale: total pH scale; Observation type: discrete; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: In-situ observation; Measured or calculated: Measured; Temperature of pH measurement: 25C; Detailed sampling and analyzing information: All spectrophotometric pH measurements were made using the indicator m-Cresol Purple. Sample cells (10-cm pathlength spectrophotometric cells, 30-cm3 volume) were filled directly from the NiskinJbottle.; Uncertainty: Na.
  • Parameter or Variable: pCO2 (fCO2) discrete; Abbreviation: fCO2; Observation type: discrete; In-situ / Manipulation / Response variable: In-situ observation; Measured or calculated: Measured; Seawater volume: 500 mL; Headspace volume: 60 mL; Temperature of measurement: 20.00 +/- 0.02C,; Detailed sampling and analyzing information: The AOML discrete fCO2 system is patterned after the design described in Chipman et al. (1993) and is discussed in detail in Wanninkhof and Thoning (1993). The major difference between the two systems is that the AOML system uses a LicorJ (model 6262) non-dispersive infrared analyzer, while the Chipman et al. system utilizes a gas chromatograph with a flame ionization detector and a methanizer, which quantitatively converts CO2 into CH4 for analysis. The headspaces of the two flasks are equilibrated simultaneously in channels A and B. While headspace from the flask in channel A goes through the IR analyzer, the headspace of the flask in channel B is recirculated in a closed loop. The sample in the A channel is equilibrated for 17 minutes while the air from the headspace of the flask flows through the IR analyzer.; Uncertainty: Precision of the fCO2 analyses shown in Table 3 of the cruise report at: http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov/ftp/oceans/eqpac92noaa/.; Method reference: Chipman, D.W., J. Marra, and T. Takahashi (1993): Primary production at 47N and 20W in the North Atlantic Ocean: A comparison between the 14C incubation method and mixed layer carbon budget observations. Deep-Sea Res.
