Partial pressure of carbon dioxide, salinity, temperature and other variables collected from surface underway observations from F.G. Walton Smith coastal cruises in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea in 2017 (NCEI Accession 0173317)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This NCEI Accession includes surface underway, chemical, meteorological and physical data collected from F.G. Walton Smith in the Gulf of Mexico, North Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea in 2017. These data include air-sea difference of partial pressure of carbon dioxide (pCO2), pCO2 in atmosphere, pCO2 in water, barometric pressure, sea surface salinity and temperature. The instruments used to collect these data include barometric pressure sensor, carbon dioxide gas analyzer, shower head chamber equilibrator for autonomous carbon dioxide measurement and thermosalinographs. These data were collected by Frank J. Millero, Ryan Woosley, of Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and Rik Wanninkhof and Kevin Sullivan of US DOC; NOAA; OAR; Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory. The Global Coastal Carbon Data Project data includes the bottle (discrete) and surface (underway) carbon-related measurements from coastal research cruises, the data from time series cruises and coastal moorings. The coastal regions data are very important for the understanding of carbon cycle on the continental margins.
