Variability and control of the surface ocean carbonate system observed from ships of opportunity

  title={Variability and control of the surface ocean carbonate system observed from ships of opportunity},
  author={Zong‐Pei Jiang},
The surface ocean plays an important role in the marine carbon cycle linking the atmosphere and the deep ocean. There are substantial variations in the surface ocean carbonate system in different environments and on various time scales, resulting from the interactions of various physical and biogeochemical processes. In this study, the use of Ships of Opportunity (SOO, as carriers of automatic underway measuring systems and platforms for sample collections) was promoted to enhance the surface…

It is shown that ocean uptake is sensitive to climate (regionally, but presumably also globally), which reinforces the expectation that, as global climate changes in the future owing to human influences, ocean uptake of CO2 will respond.

Factors controlling the total alkalinity in the Arabian Sea and Red Sea

Based on data obtained during the Geochemical Ocean Section Study (GEOSECS) 1977, Mer Rouge (MEROU) 1982, and US Joint Global Ocean Flux (JGOFS) 1995 studies we have analyzed the processes

Coastal-Zone Biogeochemical Dynamics under Global Warming

The coastal zone, consisting of the continental shelves to a depth of 200 meters, including bays, lagoons, estuaries, and near-shore banks, is an environment that is strongly affected by its

A study of gas exchange during the transition from deep winter mixing to spring bloom in the Bay of Biscay measured by continuous observation from a ship of opportunity

Monitoring from ships of opportunity allows a wide range of parameters to be measured, thereby extending the coverage of operational oceanographic studies. Observation of dissolved oxygen using new

Key controls on the seasonal and interannual variations of the carbonate system and air-sea CO2 flux in the Northeast Atlantic (Bay of Biscay)

Biogeochemical variations of surface water in the Northeast Atlantic (Bay of Biscay) were examined using high-frequency underway measurements combined with monthly sampling of carbon-related variables to distinguish the contributions of biological and physical processes to the monthly changes in dissolved inorganic carbon and partial pressure of CO2.

Report of the High-Resolution Ocean Topography Science Working Group Meeting

This paper was presented to the High-resolution Ocean Topography Science Working Group to present the biogeochemical aspects of mesoscale variability and how it relates to the observed baroclinic

Implications of observed inconsistencies in carbonate chemistry measurements for ocean acidification studies

Abstract. The growing field of ocean acidification research is concerned with the investigation of organism responses to increasing pCO2 values. One important approach in this context is culture work

Anthropogenic ocean acidification over the twenty-first century and its impact on calcifying organisms

13 models of the ocean–carbon cycle are used to assess calcium carbonate saturation under the IS92a ‘business-as-usual’ scenario for future emissions of anthropogenic carbon dioxide and indicate that conditions detrimental to high-latitude ecosystems could develop within decades, not centuries as suggested previously.
