W.J. Cai. 2007. Sea surface pCO2 survey on the South Atlantic Bight (SAB) during 
the 2005-2006 cruises. http://cdiac.esd.ornl.gov/ftp/oceans/SAB_data/. Carbon Dioxide 
Information Analysis Center, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, US Department of Energy, 
Oak Ridge, Tennessee. doi: 10.3334/CDIAC/otg.GCP_SAB_2005-2006


The survey was carried out on six cruises: 5-16 January 2005, 19-30 March 2005, 27 July - 5 August 2005, 
7-17 October 2005, 16-21 December 2005, and 17-27 May 2006. In all of the sampling cruises except for the 
one in December 2005, the research vessel transected the whole SAB from coastline to about 500 m water depth. 
The survey focused on 5 cross-shelf transects that are named E-, D-, C-, B-, and A-transects respectively 
from north to south (Figure 1). In December 2005 the ship still transected the whole SAB, but did not cover 
D- and B-transects and did not go beyond the 200 m isobath. Sea level pressure was recorded using an on board 
R.M. Young® barometric pressure sensor. Sea surface temperature (SST) and salinity were recorded continuously 
with an on-board SeaBird® flow through thermosalinography. Surface water and atmospheric xCO2 were also 
measured underway during all cruises.
