This NCEI Accession includes surface underway, chemical, meteorological and physical data collected during the R/V Simon Stevin coastal cruises in the North Sea from 2018-04-06 to 2018-12-18. These data include partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide (pCO2) - atmosphere, pCO2 - 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.
