Details of Heraklion Coastal Buoy carbonate system parameters 2020 - 2022


Dataset identification

Title of datasetHeraklion Coastal Buoy carbonate system parameters 2020 - 2022
Narrative summary of datasetThese data were collected during the period of 27/11/2020 and 18/11/2022 from the Heraklion Coastal Buoy station North of Crete. The dataset is comprised of samples collected and analysed under specific dates from this station while being part of the European project: "JERICO S3 (Joint European Research Infrastructure of Coastal Observatories: Science, Service, Sustainability)".
Summary of processing methodologyThe data were processed using the analytical instrument VINDTA 3C. The procedure is thoroughly described in the "Operating manual for the Marianda (Versatile INstrument for the Determination of Titration Alkalinity) VINDTA 3C for the laboratory based determination of Total Alkalinity and Total Dissolved Inorganic Carbon in seawater", available online in the pdf link
