Abstract: Metadata record for data from ASAC Project 133
See the link below for public details on this project.

Surface carbon dioxide (CO2) observations are integral to understanding the role of the Southern Ocean in the global carbon cycle, and to developing reliable predictions of biogeochemical responses to altered climatic conditions. Carbon dioxide (CO2) observations made in surface waters of the ... View entire text
