This archival package contains gridded data of aragonite saturation state across the global oceans (spatial distributions with a resolution of 1x1 degree latitude and longitude) at depth levels of 0m, 50m, 100m, 200m, 500m, 1000m, 2000m, 3000m and 4000m. Ocean station data with at least dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and total alkalinity (TA) measurements were obtained from the Global Ocean Data Analysis Project (GLODAP), the Carbon Dioxide in the Atlantic Ocean (CARINA), the Pacific Ocean Interior Carbon (PACIFICA), and some recent cruise data sets. Aragonite saturation state was calculated using a Matlab version of CO2SYS from in-situ temperature, pressure, salinity, dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total alkalinity (TA), silicate and phosphate with the dissociation constants for carbonic acid of Lueker et al. [2000], potassium bisulfate (KHSO4-) of Dickson [1990a], boric acid of Dickson [1990b], and with the total borate concentration equations of Lee et al. [2010]. Aragonite saturation state was correct to January 1, 2000 before it was gridded to a world-wide grid with 1x1 degree latitude and longitude resolution. The Longitude values used in this data set are from 20 to 380 degrees. For more information about the data set, please read the below paper: Jiang, L.-Q., R. A. Feely, B. R. Carter, D. J. Greeley, D. K. Gledhill, and K. M. Arzayus (2015), Climatological distribution of aragonite saturation state in the global oceans, Global Biogeochem. Cycles, 29, 1656-1673, doi:10.1002/2015GB005198.

[2000], potassium bisulfate (KHSO4) of Dickson [1990a], boric acid of Dickson [1990b], and with the total borate concentration equations of Lee et al. [2010]. Aragonite saturation state was correct to January 1, 2000 before it was gridded to a world-wide grid with 1x1 degree latitude and longitude resolution.; Uncertainty: 6% for the calculated aragonite saturation state, the uncertainty for the gridded data is larger.; Researcher name: Li-Qing Jiang; Researcher institution: Cooperative Institute of Climate and Satellites, University of Maryland.
