Lee, K., L. T. Tong, F. J. Millero, C. L. Sabine, A. G. Dickson, C. Goyet, G.-H. Park, R. Wanninkhof,
R. A. Feely, and R. M. Key. 2006. Global relationships of total alkalinity with salinity and temperature
in surface waters of the world's oceans. Geophys Research Letters 33, L19605, doi:10.1029/2006GL027207.
Surface Total Alkalinity fields were estimated from five regional TA relationships presented in Lee et al.
[GRL, 2006, V33, L19605, doi: 10.1029/2006GL027207]**, using monthly mean sea surface temperature and salinity
from the World Ocean Atlas 2001 [Conkright et al. 2002: World Ocean Atlas 2001: Objective Analyses, Data Statistics,
and Figures, CD-ROM Documentation. National Oceanographic Data Center, Silver Spring, MD, 17 pp.].
This data sheet consists of 36 columns, including latitude, longitude, sea surface temperature(SST, Jan-Dec),
sea surface salinity(SSS, Jan-Dec), Calculated total alkalinity from January through December (TA, Jan-Dec).
The pixel with -999.9 TA value means that its temperature and salinity are out of the calculation ranges of equations.
