Physical and chemical oceanic parameters available from NOAA's Ocean Atmosphere Carbon Dioxide Exchange Study (OACES)Entry ID: NOAA_AOML_OACES
Abstract: NOAA's Ocean Atmosphere Carbon Dioxide Exchange Study (OACES)
seeks to enhance our understanding of the role of the ocean in
sequestering the increasing burden of anthropogenically-derived
carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. To do this, OACES scientists
quantitatively assess the sources, sinks and pathways of carbon
dioxide in the atmosphere and the oceans. Research ... involves studies
in the direction, rate and amount of carbon dioxide transfer between
the atmosphere and the ocean. These studies have been conducted in
conjunction with the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) pilot
programs in the equatorial Pacific (EQPAC) in 1992, in the Indian
Ocean in 1994/95 and in the Southern Ocean.
In addition, the OACES program assesses the storage of carbon
dioxide in the ocean. This research is being conducted cooperatively
with JGOFS on cruises of the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE).
These WOCE "long line" cruises include two in the Pacific (110W,170W),
one in the Atlantic (WOCE line A-16), and two in the Indian Ocean
(WOCE lines I-7 and I-8). The WOCE long lines are reoccupied at
approximately five-year intervals.
Data sets include: surface to bottom CTD casts; rosette-mounted
Niskin bottle water sample measurements of salinity, oxygen, nutrients,
pCO2, total CO2, total alkalinity, pH, DOC, and 13C and 14C; and, within
the upper 200 meters, profiles of light, primary production, chlorophyll,
phaeopigments, POM, and integrated thorium activity as an estimate
of particulate export.

The extent of the orbital range for the Large
Format Camera was 57 degrees north to 57 degrees south latitude.
Vertical Gemini coverage is generally worldwide between 33 degrees
North and 33 degrees South latitude. Oblique imagery includes areas
beyond the vertical coverage range.
