browse graphicPreview graphic
This NCEI Accession includes surface underway chemical, meteorological and physical data collected from the ship of opportunity (SOOP) M/V Nuka Arctica cruises in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2016-12-29 to 2017-12-27. These data include measurements of mole fraction of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the equilibrator headspace (dry) at equilibrator temperature, mole fraction of CO2 measured in dry outside air, barometric pressure in the equilibrator headspace, water temperature in equilibrator, sea surface temperature, and fugacity of CO2 in sea water at SST and 100% humidity. The instruments used to collect these data include carbon dioxide (CO2) gas analyzer and shower head chamber equilibrator for autonomous CO2 measurement. These data were collected by Are Olsen and Meike Becker of University of Bergen, Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, Norway.
