UK-NERC Shelf Seas Biogeochemistry Surface Underway Measurements During the R/V Discovery UK Coastal Cruises in 2015 (NCEI Accession 0170033)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This NCEI Accession includes surface underway, chemical, meteorological and physical data collected from R/V Discovery in the English Channel, Celtic Sea and North Atlantic Ocean from 2015-03-06 to 2015-07-20. These data include partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide - atmosphere, partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide - water, sea surface salinity sea surface temperature and barometric pressure. The instruments used to collect these data include barometric pressure sensor and carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analyzer. These data were collected by Dr. Vassilis Kitidis of Plymouth Marine Laboratory as part of the R/V Discovery Coastal Cruises data set.
