NCEI Accession 0113917 includes discrete sample and profile data collected from THALASSA in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2002-06-11 to 2002-07-11. These data include DISSOLVED OXYGEN, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, NITRATE, Potential temperature (theta), SALINITY, TOTAL ALKALINITY (TA), WATER TEMPERATURE, pH, phosphate and silicate. The instruments used to collect these data include Alkalinity titrator, CTD, bottle and spectrophotometer.

These data were collected by H. Mercier of Institut Français de Recherche Pour L'Exploitation de la Mer and F. Pérez and M. Alvarez of Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas de Vigo as part of the CARINA_35TH20020611_OVIDE 2002 data set. CDIAC associated the following cruise ID(s) with this data set: OVIDE 2002

The CARINA (CARbon dioxide IN the Atlantic Ocean) data synthesis project is an international collaborative effort of the EU IP CARBOOCEAN, and U.S. partners. It has produced a merged internally consistent data set of open ocean subsurface measurements for biogeochemical investigations, in particular, studies involving the carbon system. The original focus area was the North Atlantic Ocean, but over time the geographic extent expanded and CARINA now includes data from the entire Atlantic, the Arctic Ocean, and the Southern Ocean.

  • 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: potentiometric; Cell type (open or closed): Closed; Curve fitting method: TALK was measured using an automatic potentiometric titrator Titrino Metrohm, with a Metrohm 6.0233.100 combination glass electrode and a Pt-100 probe to check the temperature.; TA blank correction: see Table 3 in the report: the pH (Delta pH) correction applied to each batch and the mean value of the CRM determinations after applying the former correction.; Uncertainty: The standard deviation of all the TALK determinations for 23 bottles was 0.8 μmol/kg. TA was determined during the OVIDE cruise with an uncertainty of +/- 1 μmol/kg.; Method reference: Pérez, F.F. and F. Fraga. (1987).
