Abstract: [Summary adopted from the NDP-054 documentation]

This data documentation discusses the procedures and methods used to
obtain data on total carbon dioxide (TCO2), total alkalinity (TALK),
and discrete partial pressure of CO2, (pCO2) during the Research
Vessel (R/V) Thomas Washington TUNES Leg 2 Expedition in the central
South Pacific Ocean. Conducted as part of the World Ocean Circulation

SHIPS Ancillary Description
Quality An important part of the NDP process at the Carbon Dioxide Information
Analysis Center (CDIAC) involves the quality assurance (QA) review of
data before distribution. Data received at CDIAC are rarely in a
condition that permits immediate distribution, regardless of the
source. To guarantee data of the highest possible ... View entire text
