pH, alkalinity, temperature, salinity and other variables collected from discrete sample and profile observations using Alkalinity titrator, CTD and other instruments from the BELGICA in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2008-05-07 to 2008-05-23 (NODC Accession 0112840)

browse graphicPreview graphic
NODC Accession 0112840 includes chemical, discrete sample, physical and profile data collected from BELGICA in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2008-05-07 to 2008-05-23. These data include ALKALINITY, DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, PHOSPHATE, Potential temperature (theta), SALINITY, WATER TEMPERATURE and pH. The instruments used to collect these data include Alkalinity titrator, CTD, bottle and pH meter.

These data were collected by Alberto Borges of University of Liege and Lei Chou [affiliation unknown] as part of the COASTAL_Belgica_2008_12 data set. CDIAC assigned the following cruise ID(s) to this data set: COASTAL_Belgica_2008_12.

The Global Coastal Carbon Data Project data includes the bottle (discrete) and surface (underway) carbon-related measurements from coastal research cruises, the data from time series cruises and coastal moorings. The coastal regions data are very important for the understanding of carbon cycle on the continental margins.
