Partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide, temperature, salinity and other variables collected from surface underway observations using carbon dioxide gas analyzer, shower head equilibrator and other instruments from SOOP C/S Allure of the Seas in the Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico and North Atlantic Ocean in 2017 (NCEI Accession 0161619)

In 2015, the Ocean Carbon Group at NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) installed an autonomous instrument to measure CO2 levels in surface water and air on the Cruise Ship (C/S) Allure of the Seas. This data set archive is the Sea Surface and Atmospheric fCO2 data measured in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea during the C/S Allure of the Seas 2017 SOOP cruises.
