High-resolution ocean and atmosphere pCO2 time-series measurements from Mooring CCE2_121W_34N (NODC Accession 0084099)

browse graphicPreview graphic
NCEI Accession 0084099 includes chemical, meteorological, physical and time series data collected from MOORING CCE2_121W_34N in the North Pacific Ocean from 2010-01-17 to 2015-04-30. These data include AIR-SEA DIFFERENCE - PARTIAL PRESSURE (OR FUGACITY) OF CARBON DIOXIDE, BAROMETRIC PRESSURE, OXYGEN - PERCENT SATURATION, Partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide - atmosphere, Partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide - water, SALINITY, SEA SURFACE TEMPERATURE and pH. The instruments used to collect these data include Bubble type equilibrator for autonomous carbon dioxide (CO2) measurement and Carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analyzer. These data were collected by Adrienne Sutton, Christopher Sabine, Stacy Maenner and Sylvia Musielewicz of US DOC; NOAA; OAR; Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory and Uwe Send of University of California - San Diego; Scripps Institution of Oceanography. The Global CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project involves international groups from 18 countries who have mounted sensors on moored buoys to provide high resolution time-series measurements of atmospheric boundary layer and surface ocean CO2 partial pressure (pCO2). The CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project is coordinated by UNESCO International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP).
