The magnitude of the interannual variability of North Atlantic air-sea CO2 fluxes remains uncertain. Interannual extremes simulated by atmospheric inverse approaches are typically about ±0.3 Pg C yr −1, whereas those from ocean models are less than ±0.1 Pg C yr −1. Thus variability in the North Atlantic is either about 60% or less than 20% of the global variability of about ±0.5 Pg C yr −1 (as estimated by both approaches). Here we explore spatiotemporal variability within the North Atlantic… CONTINUE READING
