  • Three years of carbonate system measurements from Ryder Bay on the West Antarctic Peninsula are presented. The strong, asymmetric seasonal cycle of surface water Dissolved Inorganic Carbon (DIC) is quantitatively attributed to four processes:mixing of water masses, air-sea CO2 flux, calcium carbonate precipitation/dissolution and photosynthesis/respiration. In summer, reduced mixing with deeper water, net photosynthesis, and melting glacial ice and sea ice reduce DIC. In winter, mixing with… CONTINUE READING
