This NCEI accession is the SURATLANT (SURveillance ATLANTique) data set and consists of individual data of temperature, salinity, dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and its isotopic composition d13CDIC, total alkalinity (At), inorganic nutrients and water stable isotopes (d18O and dD) collected mostly from ships of opportunity between 1993 and 2017 along 76 transects between Iceland and Newfoundland in the North Atlantic Ocean. The data have been validated, qualified, and their accuracy and the overall characteristics of the data set are presented in a paper (Reverdin et al., 2018, submitted to ESSD).
