  • Parameter or Variable: Total alkalinity; Abbreviation: ALKALI; Unit: UMOL/KG; Observation type: Discrete, bottle; Measured or calculated: Measured; Sampling instrument: Niskin Bottles; Detailed sampling and analyzing information: ALKALI samples were taken from 55 SOCCOM stations. Approximately 10% of samples were duplicates. Nominal 500 mL samples were drawn from the Niskin bottles, preserved with mercury (II) chloride and packed for shipping via air freight back for analysis at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.; Quality flag convention: WOCE quality control flags are used: 2 = good value, 3 = questionable value, 4 = bad value; Researcher name: Andrew Dickson; Researcher institution: SIO.
