CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project
Time-series records are used to characterize the natural variability and temporal trends in the ocean carbon cycle.
CDIAC provides data management support for the Global CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project. CDIAC provides data management support for the Global CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project. The international groups from 18 countries have mounted sensors on moored buoys to provide high resolution time-series measurements of atmospheric boundary layer and surface ocean CO2 partial pressure (pCO2). The CO2 Time-series and Moorings Project is coordinated by IOCCP and OceanSITES.
Typical measurements incluide barometric pressure, partial pressure (or fugacity) of carbon dioxide fCO2, sea surface salinity, and sea surface temperature.
