NODC Accession 0112886 includes chemical, discrete sample, physical and profile data collected from Celtic Explorer in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2009-02-06 to 2012/01/10. These data include DISSOLVED INORGANIC CARBON (DIC), DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, NITRATE, NITRATE + NITRITE CONTENT (CONCENTRATION), NITRITE, PHOSPHATE, SALINITY, SILICATE, TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA) and WATER TEMPERATURE. The instruments used to collect these data include Alkalinity titrator, CTD, Coulometer for DIC measurement and bottle.

These data were collected by Triona McGrath, Caroline Kivimae, Rachel R. Cave, Evin McGovern, Triona Dr. McGrath, Evin Dr. McGovern and Rachel R. Dr. Cave of National University of Ireland - Galway as part of the COASTAL_Rockall_Trough_2009_2010 and COASTAL_Rockall_Trough_2011_2012 data set. CDIAC assigned the following cruise ID(s) to this data set: CE11001, CE12001 and COASTAL_Rockall_Trough.

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.

The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) was a major component of the World Climate Research Program with the overall goal of better understanding the ocean's role in climate and climatic changes resulting from both natural and anthropogenic causes. The CO2 survey took advantage of the sampling opportunities provided by the WOCE Hydrographic Program (WHP) cruises during this period between 1990 and 1998. The final collection covers approximately 23,000 stations from 94 WOCE cruises.

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; Detailed sampling and analyzing information: TCO2 is measured by acidification of the sample with phosphoric acid followed by coulometric titration on a VINDTA-3C (Versatile Instrument for the Determination of Titration Alkalinity) system with UIC coulometer.; Standardization description: A known volume of sample is acidified with phosphoric acid in order to transfer all dissolved inorganic carbon to CO2. The resulting CO2 is forced out of the sample by a continuous flow of pure nitrogen through the sample and the extracted CO2 is passed into a titration cell in the coulometer. The CO2 is titrated coulometrically with a dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) based absorbent containing ethanolamine. The CO2 reacts quantitatively with the ethanolamine to produce hydroxyethylcarbanic acid. The pH of the titration is monitored by measuring the transmittance of the thymolphthalein indicator which shows when the titration is finished. The thymol blue indicator fades to the original colour due to generation of hydroxide ions at the cathode to maintain the transmittance of the solution at a constant value. The change in colour is monitored by the photodetector as a percentage of transmittance (%T). The amount of CO2 extracted from the sample is determined by the time integrated current of the hydroxide ions generated. Once the endpoint is reached, the current stops and the VINDTA LabVIEWTM software calculates the TCO2 concentrations.; CRM batch number: 97, 99, 102.
