Summary
Abstract: This dataset presents Carbon 14 activities from water samples taken at
various locations and depths in the Indian and Southern Oceans through
the Indien Gaz Ocean (INDIGO) project. These data were collected as
part of the INDIGO 1, 2, and 3 cruises, which took place during the
years 1985, 1986, and 1987, respectively. These data have been used to
estimate the penetration of anthropogenic CO2 in the Indian and
Southern Oceans. The records include the station, date, ocean bottom
depth, latitude and longitude, sampling depth, potential temperature,
salinity, density, total CO2, Carbon 13, and Carbon 14 activity. The
data are in one file of 25 kB.

All CDIAC numerical data packages include copies of pertinent
literature discussing the data, summaries discussing the background,
source and scope of the data, as well as applications limitations and
restrictions of the data.
