Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of Northeast Pacific Anthropogenic CO2 Uptake Data.

The stable isotopic signature of dissolved inorganic carbon (d13C_DIC) in the
northeast Pacific Ocean is lower in near-surface waters by ยป1.10 relative to
values predicted from global oceanic trends of d13C_DIC versus nutrients. A
combination of anthropogenic carbon uptake from the atmosphere and
thermo-dynamic, air-sea gas exchange processes in different water mass source
areas account for the isotopic depletion. Here we evaluate the efficacy of
using a concurrent nutrient-d13C strategy to separate these two effects, with
the goal of improving estimates of anthropogenic carbon uptake over the course
of the Industrial Revolution.
