Climatological distribution of ocean acidification indicators from surface to 500 meters water depth on the North American ocean margins from 2003-12-06 to 2018-11-22 (NCEI Accession 0270962)

Metadata Updated: November 1, 2023

This data package contains 1x1 degree coastal climatologies (mean fields of oceanographic variables on a regular geographic grid at specific depths) of pH on the Total Scale, total hydrogen ion content, free hydrogen ion content, carbonate ion content, aragonite saturation state, calcite saturation state, total dissolved inorganic carbon content, and total alkalinity content from surface to 500 meters water depth on North American ocean margins. These climatologies were developed with the World Ocean Atlas (WOA) gridding technologies of the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), based on the recently released Coastal Ocean Data Analysis Product in North America (CODAP-NA, https://doi.org/10.5194/essd-13-2777-2021), along with the Global Ocean Data Analysis Product version 2 (GLODAPv2, version 2021, https://doi.org/10.5194/essd-13-5565-2021). The relevant variables were adjusted to the year of 2010 based on the algorithms as developed by Carter et al. (2021, https://doi.org/10.1002/lom3.10461) before the gridding. This data package contains a total of 8 NetCDF files, one for each of the variable. It is recommended to use the objectively analyzed mean fields (with "_an" postfix) for each variable.
