Details of Carbon parameters in the Western tropical Atlantic


Dataset identification

Title of datasetCarbon parameters in the Western tropical Atlantic
Narrative summary of datasetSurface alkalinity and total inorganic carbon (in µmol/kg) were measured by closed-cell potentiometric titration during PIRATA Brazilian cruises. Important Note: This submission has been initially submitted to SEA scieNtific Open data Edition (SEANOE) publication service and received the recorded DOI. The metadata elements have been further processed (refined) in EMODnet Ingestion Service in order to conform with the Data Submission Service specifications.
